Asked On January 22, 2017 03:01 AM UTC

Hi,
I am looking for functionality to extract text from a PDF -document.
It seems that the ASP.Net Core modules are not yet fully ported.
Is there any way I can use the MVC version of the PDF component in my ASP.Net Core project? For instance, by adding a dependency to Dot Net 4.6?
Oskar

Hi Oskar, 
 
Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support. 
 
At present, we do not have support for “ExtractText” function in ASP.NET core platform and also we could not use MVC reference assemblies in the  ASP.NET Core application. However, we have included the query in our feature request and we will implement this feature in any of our upcoming releases. The feature implementation would also greatly depend on the factors such as product design, code compatibility and complexity.   
 
Please let us know if you need any other assistance. 
 
Regards, 
Akshaya

I am also quite interested in having this feature available in the .NET Core library.

Hi Oskar, 

Thank you for your update. 

We have implemented the feature “Need to provide support for ExtractText in ASP.NET core platform” internally and it will be available in the Essential Studio Volume 3, which is expected to be rolled out by the end of July 2017. 

Please let us know if you need further assistance on this. 

Regards,

Posting in this thread since it is related. Will the ported functions allow me to get the coordinates of the various text snippets along with it? I find the simple ExtractText() method often aggregates lines with no regard to spacing such that two words are merged with no way to logically separate them. If I had the individuel strings and their coordinates (e.g. baseline) I could deduce their order and anticipate line breaks to keep the two words separate. Thanks in advance.

Hi Emil, 

Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support. 

The ExtractText() feature, does not have the support for retrieving the coordinates of the text from the PDF document, we can extract the text contents only from the PDF document using the ExtractText(). However the co -ordinates of the text can be obtained by using the FindText() feature.  

The FindText method returns true when the target text given is found in the document along with dictionary which contains the page index and the list of rectangular coordinates of the target text found on that page. 

Note: The support for FintText () feature in the ASP.Net core platform will be available from Volume 3 release, which is expected to be rolled out by the end of July 2017. 

Please let us know if need any further assistance. 

Regards, 
Akshaya
