i am in need of some help. I would like to thank you all in advance for any suggestions and hopefully solutions you have!!
first let me start off explaining what i am trying to do. i am using Acrobat Pro 7.0 and VB6 OLE. i am currently searching though a PDF file using "FindText". That is working perfectly, but i need to get the rectangle of the found text for i may create a link for it.
it is a little more colplex than that i am affraid... i cannot use the nifty JS object to do a word by word search and the nice getPageNthWordQuads because i have to extract all text from document first and test against some regular expressions i created to even know what word i need. the regular expressions match Links and Emails. and unforunantly with JS getPageNthWord the words stop at the "@" and the "." and break into multiple words. once i have built an array of all the regular expression matches i use the "FindText" method and it of course finds it and hilites it on the page.
now all i need to de is figure out a way to get the position of the word so i can create a link.
i hope this makes sense...
Please all help is greatly appreciated.
