    I see the new control named pdfprocessing. I am very interesting in this control. base on the introduction of this, they can import pdf file and convert to a certain format. but there is no demo about this. I want to convert a pdf file to a text format and extract the picture in pdf file . can this control do this.

    Hello Vincent,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    RadPdfProcessing is in CTP and currently it does not support text extraction.

    However, you can use RadPdfViewer to extract the text. You can use the following code:

    PdfFormatProvider provider = new PdfFormatProvider(stream, FormatProviderSettings.ReadOnDemand);
    RadFixedDocument document = provider.Import();
    TextFormatProvider textFormatProvider = new TextFormatProvider();
    string text = textFormatProvider.Export(document);

    Extracting the images in a PDF file is not supported for now. However, we have it in mind when expanding the RadPdfProcessing functionality.

    Hope this answers your questions.

    Hello Nirmala,

    RadPdfProcessing is shipped with several of the Telerik UI suites, for example with the ASP.NET AJAX one. I suggest downloading a trial from your Telerik account and trying the library out. You can also take a look at our online demos.

    Please note, however, that we ship the binaries with target framework versions Silverlight 5 or .NET 4.0/4.5. Libraries for .NET 3.5 are not distributed and I'm afraid we have no plans to include such version.
