How to Convert PDF to JSON using ByteScout PDF Extractor SDK

In this tutorial, we will extract data from PDF to JSON output. Let’s copy the sample code and paste it into the Visual Studio editor. I added the sample code link in the description box below. To extract the PDF files, we will use the ByteScout PDF Extractor SDK. You can add a reference to the PDF Extractor SDK DLL and the Solution Explorer. Right-click on reference and select add reference. Look up the PDF Extractor SDK and add. Then add your registration name and registration key and their related properties accordingly.

You can get your license details in the ByteScout dashboard. We will add our sample file in the solution explorer and set the copy to the output directory to ‘copy always’. Then load the sample file in the loaded document from the file property. Our output will be saved to a JSON file. Now let’s run the program.
