Help with viewing data in PDF files using VB.NET

Hi,

I need to search text entered in a text box in multiple PDF files in my application's folder.
How do I create a list of the pages of all the PDF files which contains the text entered and access the page when I click on a file on the list?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Unfortunately You cannot do this with the standard .NET classes( to read a PDF file).

However you can use third party software.

IText is an open source and there are lots of C# (easily can be converted to vb.net)


 Here is an example:
