The code snippet below uses the PdfDocumentProcessor.Text property to extract the text of a PDF file at runtime.

string ExtractTextFromPDF(string filePath)
{
    string documentText = "";
    try {
        using (PdfDocumentProcessor documentProcessor = 
        new PdfDocumentProcessor())
        {
            documentProcessor.LoadDocument(filePath);
            documentText = documentProcessor.Text;
        }
    }
    catch { }
    return documentText;
}
