Topic: Get bounds of a matched search query?

Hi all

I am in the process of building a plug-in to do dynamic link generation in a PDF based on a regular expression (or two, or three). The only thing I have not been able to do in this plug-in is determine the location of a word that is found by Adobe's built-in search plug-in. I'm using VC++, Win2k, and the full version of Acrobat 5.0 with the SDK. Could someone please point me in the right direction, or show me some simple code which retrieves the bounds of a search result (one word within the result, obviously)?

My gratitude to any advice to be offered :)
