    Hi Michael,
    We are actively working on this feature and hopefully it will be released with the upcoming 2012 Q2 release.

    All the best,

    Hi,

    I'm really hoping this feature is in there now.  I only need plain text extraction - not formatting.  Fingers crossed...

    Hi Dave G,

    You can export the content of a PDF document shown in RadPdfViewer with the help of the TextFormatProvider class like this:
    TextFormatProvider formatProvider = new TextFormatProvider();
    string pdfContent = formatProvider.Export(this.viewer.Document);

    I hope this is helpful!
