public PdfSearchResult Search( string value )
Public Function Search ( value As String ) As PdfSearchResult()
An array of PdfSearchResult instances for each search result found.
If the search string value contains more than one word, this array will contain the results for each word provided. This is nearly equivalent (although faster) to calling multiple times with each individual word you wish to search for and then merging the results. This is often referred to as an OR Search.
This method will also return partial matches. (e.g. "example" will be found if value is "example", "amp", or "a")
This method is case-insensitive. (e.g. "example" will be found if value is "example", "EXAMPLE", or "exAMPle")
