Anyone can help with how to get a text coordinates?
can this be possible?
because I just wanted a windows form app where the user types a word in a text box, and the app reads existing PDF using iTextSharp, highlights the matched words if found, and saves the PDF with highlighted text. so far i have almost everything done, including the drawing of a yellow rectangle, but what is lacking is how to get the text coordinates of the matched patterns to highlight them.

thanks in advance

What do you mean by "highlighting"? Usually it means selection, something which is not saved but exists only during run time, because this is not a part of document.
