I am working on a FindText code (VB 6), the rutine is working fine, im am not 100%
sure what the hilitelist does...

How can i know if there is more occurences of my "Patteren" on the page, and
how do i write a findNext rutine.

The whole idea is to build a list/Array of occurences of my patteren

Like this

Patteren page Acrorect.button, acrorect.left etc...
MyPat 4 224 390
MyPat 4 284 200
MyPat 38 110 190
MyPat 41 234 370
MyPat 48 432 330
MyPat 78 270 690


This is my FindText Code..
Private Sub FindText(Patteren as string)
Dim hList As CAcroHiliteList
Dim pdPage As CAcroPDPage
Dim pdTextSelect As CAcroPDTextSelect
Dim avPageView As CAcroAVPageView
Dim AcroRect As CAcroRect

Ok = AVDoc.FindText(Patteren, False, False, True)
Set hList = CreateObject("AcroExch.HiliteList")
hList.Add 0, 10

Set avPageView = AVDoc.GetAVPageView()
Set pdPage = avPageView.GetPage()
Set pdTextSelect = pdPage.CreatePageHilite(hList)
Set pdTextSelect = pdPage.CreateWordHilite(hList)

AVDoc.SetTextSelection pdTextSelect
Set AcroRect = pdTextSelect.GetBoundingRect

end sub

does anyone has any ideas?

Best regards
