Text Analysis API
GroupDocs.Parser allows extracting text areas from the pages of a document. This feature may help you getting data for text analysis. DocumentContent
abstract class provides API to extract text areas from document pages. This feature has been extended for spreadsheets, presentations and text documents in the current version of the API.
The following code sample shows how to get text areas from a text document.
// Create a text extractor
WordsTextExtractor extractor = new WordsTextExtractor("invoice.docx");
// Create search options
TextAreaSearchOptions searchOptions = new TextAreaSearchOptions();
// Set a regular expression to search 'Invoice # XXX' text
searchOptions.Expression = "\\s?INVOICE\\s?#\\s?[0-9]+";
// Limit the search with a rectangle
searchOptions.Rectangle = new GroupDocs.Parser.Rectangle(10, 10, 300, 150);
// Get text areas
IList< textarea > texts = extractor.DocumentContent.GetTextAreas(0, searchOptions);
// Iterate over a list
foreach(TextArea area in texts)
// Print a text

Requesting the Password for Protected Documents
We have two ways to provide a password for the protected documents. When the password is known, Password property of LoadOptions class is used. If it is not known whether it is protected or not before opening the document, PasswordProvider property of LoadOptions class is used. This feature allows providing a password for protected documents on-demand. IPasswordProvider
interface is used for this purpose. For more details on this feature, please visit this
