PDF Text Search in MAUI

Search across PDF pages for matching text in your MAUI app. PSPDFKit for MAUI offers developers a user interface (UI) for searching and highlighting relevant matches. Additionally, it offers access to JavaScript APIs for programmatic full-text search UI customization.

These APIs will be translated to native APIs in subsequent releases, so stay tuned for updates.

Searching Programmatically

Search APIs for PSPDFKit for MAUI are identical to those for our Web SDK. When searching programmatically in a MAUI application, refer to the PSPDFKit for Web search documentation. If you’d like to bridge these APIs with your MAUI app, refer to our guide that explains how to bridge web APIs.
