ByteScout PDF Extractor SDK – C# – Find Table And Extract As CSV

Program.cs

using Bytescout.PDFExtractor;

namespace FindTableAndExtractAsCsv
{
class Program
{
static void Main(string[] args)
{
// Create Bytescout.PDFExtractor.CSVExtractor instance
CSVExtractor csvExtractor = new CSVExtractor();
csvExtractor.RegistrationName = “demo”;
csvExtractor.RegistrationKey = “demo”;

// Create Bytescout.PDFExtractor.TableDetector instance
TableDetector tableDetector = new TableDetector();
tableDetector.RegistrationKey = “demo”;
tableDetector.RegistrationName = “demo”;

// Set table detection mode to “bordered tables” – best for tables with closed solid borders.
tableDetector.ColumnDetectionMode = ColumnDetectionMode.BorderedTables;

// We should define what kind of tables we should detect.
// So we set min required number of columns to 3 …
tableDetector.DetectionMinNumberOfColumns = 3;
// … and we set min required number of rows to 3
tableDetector.DetectionMinNumberOfRows = 3;

// Load sample PDF document
csvExtractor.LoadDocumentFromFile(@”.\sample3.pdf”);
tableDetector.LoadDocumentFromFile(@”.\sample3.pdf”);

// Get page count
int pageCount = tableDetector.GetPageCount();

for (int i = 0; i < pageCount; i++) { int t = 1; // Find first table and continue if found if (tableDetector.FindTable(i)) { do { // Set extraction area for CSV extractor to rectangle received from the table detector csvExtractor.SetExtractionArea(tableDetector.FoundTableLocation); // Export the table to CSV file csvExtractor.SavePageCSVToFile(i, "page-" + i + "-table-" + t + ".csv"); t++; } while (tableDetector.FindNextTable()); // search next table } } // Cleanup csvExtractor.Dispose(); tableDetector.Dispose(); // Open first output file in default associated application (for demo purposes) System.Diagnostics.Process.Start("page-0-table-1.csv"); } } } [/csharp]
