This is not really possible. You have no control over your PDF viewer, which is running in IE. You need to buy a dedicated PDF control to do this.

Thanks sir,

Can u suggest any open source control to do this process?

I don't think there is one. Libraries to process PDFs, sure. Libraries to display them ? No.

yeah,libraries used to process pdf..i am asking is there any open source control to highlight text based on the text focused in textbox?

B'coz the web browser control can't able to highlight text in pdf.

Again, the answer is no. If you need this, then you're going to have to pay for it.
