BaseTextExtractorCustomExtractionColumns Property ByteScout PDF Extractor SDK
Allows to override the automatic columns detection with custom columns.

Namespace:  Bytescout.PDFExtractor
Assembly:  Bytescout.PDFExtractor (in Bytescout.PDFExtractor.dll) Version:

public double[] CustomExtractionColumns { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: Double
Array of column coordinates (left column edges). The first coordinate should be 0 or left edge of the most left text object.



Example of use: If you have a document with the same column structure on all pages, you can run the extraction for the first page, take detected columns from it using ExtractionColumns property and pass them to CustomExtractionColumns. This will help to avoid columns variation caused by minor changes in other pages structure and also will speed up the extraction.
