Not sure if live-seaching is going to be the best route, but anyway...

You're going to want to look at this at some point: http://www.codeproject.com/useritems/PDFToText.asp
That's how to read a PDF into .net

What I would do, is extract all the data from all your PDFs every 3/4 days (depending on how often they change) and dumping the text in a database... It should then be quite easy to do a full text search on the database.

Otherwise you can go with the live-search method that does the above on demand... But as noted, highly unrecommended.
