Hi Amy,
The PdfDocumentViewer has a textbox on the toolbar now for searching but it's not working on some pdfs. The search works on those pdfs using other pdf viewers, like Foxit so I'll have to investigate that more when I have some time. Also, I currently use the PdfViewer and not the PdfDocumentViewer so that I can integrate my own toolbar. Is the search functionality available for the PdfViewer?
Thanks,
Mark

Hello Mark,

Thanks for your feedback.
Sorry the search functionality is only available for the PdfViewer at present.
The issue had already been reported to our Dev team yet it might not be accomplished in a short time due to its compexity. Once there's any progress, we will inform you.

Hi,
The search is working although the highlighting is a little off (See attached).
Also, the search is case sensitive, it would be great to have a non case sensitive option.
Thanks,
Mark
