How can I select and copy text to the clipboard with PDF Viewer in Q2?

I couldn't find anything in the documentation?

There is a copy method but I cannot select text in the viewer control with the mouse.

regards,
Victor

Hello Victor,

From Q2 RadPdfViewer has a new property called Mode, which controls the current mode (Pan / TextSelection). When you use the text selection mode, you will be able to use the mouse to select text.

Then, using the Ctrl + C key binding (by default) the text will be copied to the clipboard.

In addition, you can easily select and copy text in code behind. Here is sample code illustrating how this can be done: 

public void ShowSelectionAndCopyFeature()
{
    TextPosition position = new TextPosition                                                                       (this.viewer.Document.CaretPosition);
    position.MoveLineDown();
    position.MoveLineDown();
  
    position.MoveToLineStart();
  
    TextPosition position2 = new TextPosition(position);
    position2.MoveToNextWord();
    position2.MoveToNextPosition();
  
    this.viewer.Select(position, position2);
  
    this.viewer.Copy();
  
    MessageBox.Show(this.viewer.GetSelectedText());
}

I hope this helps.

Hi Umapathi,

Thank you for your question.

We are currently evaluating the user scenarios that may require a PDF Viewer for Windows Store apps. We have the control in our radar but I cannot give any estimation on its availability, so stay tuned for more information to come :)

I hope this information is useful. Let me know if I can help you in some other way.

The ability to embed this PDFViewer into a Windows Store app will be huge for us. I've been searching for a solution for days and came across Foxit that can do the job. But I've had bad tech support from them so I'm trying to stay away from using their products again. Please keep me posted as soon as this product is available for use in Windows Store app. Thanks.
