PdfLoadedDocument lDoc = new PdfLoadedDocument(@"input.pdf");

 

for (int i = 0; i < lDoc.Pages.Count; i++)

{

//Get the annotation collection

PdfAnnotationCollection annotColl = lDoc.Pages[i].Annotations as PdfLoadedAnnotationCollection;

 

for (int j = 0; j < annotColl.Count; j++)

{

//Get the annotation

PdfLoadedAnnotation annot = annotColl[j] as PdfLoadedAnnotation;

 

 

if (annot is PdfLoadedTextWebLinkAnnotation || annot is PdfLoadedUriAnnotation)
