Finding surrounding text around the search term


The search function in the webreader is awesome and provides a snippet of the text before, and after the match right with the search result.

Is there a smiliar function for the PDFNet SDK (we are using iOS SDK)?


You can use the TextSearch class to find text surrounding a found term, which we call the “ambient string”. Please see the documentation for more info:

You will want to include e_ambient_string when you search.
