The following C# coding example illustrates how to perform Word text searching function in your .NET project, including setting search option, creating search result and saving the result.http://localhost




internal static void TestSearch(String fileName, String matchString, String cacheFile)
{

// Set search options.
RESearchOption option = new RESearchOption();
option.SetMatchString(matchString);
option.WholeWord = true;
option.IgnoreCase = true;
option.ContextExpansion = 30;

// It will create a cach file if your PDF document is never been searched before. 
if (!File.Exists(fileName))
{
BaseDocument document = getBaseDocument(TestFilePath.InputFilePath + fileName);
document.CacheSearchInfo(TestFilePath.InputFilePath + cacheFile);
}

// Create search result.
SearchResult sResult = new SearchResult();

// Search and store the result in the entity of search structure.
BaseDocument.Search(TestFilePath.InputFilePath + cacheFile, option, sResult);
}

private static BaseDocument getBaseDocument(String filePath)
{
BaseDocument document = null;
if (filePath.EndsWith(".pdf"))
document = new PDFDocument(filePath);
else if (filePath.EndsWith(".docx"))
document = new DOCXDocument(filePath);
else if (filePath.EndsWith(".xlsx"))
document = new XLSXDocument(filePath);
else
{}
return document;
