Extract hyperlinks from document page area

GroupDocs.Parser provides the functionality to extract hyperlinks from document page area by the getHyperlinks(PageAreaOptions) and getHyperlinks(int, PageAreaOptions) methods:

Iterable<PageHyperlinkArea> getHyperlinks(PageAreaOptions options);
Iterable<PageHyperlinkArea> getHyperlinks(int pageIndex, PageAreaOptions options);

These methods return a collection of PageHyperlinkArea object:

The following example shows how to extract hyperlinks from the document page area:

// Create an instance of Parser class
try (Parser parser = new Parser(Constants.HyperlinksPdf)) {
    // Check if the document supports hyperlink extraction
    if (!parser.getFeatures().isHyperlinks()) {
        System.out.println("Document isn't supports hyperlink extraction.");
    // Create the options which are used for hyperlink extraction
    PageAreaOptions options = new PageAreaOptions(new Rectangle(new Point(380, 90), new Size(150, 50)));
    // Extract hyperlinks from the document page area
    Iterable<PageHyperlinkArea> hyperlinks = parser.getHyperlinks(options);
    // Iterate over hyperlinks
    for (PageHyperlinkArea h : hyperlinks) {
        // Print the hyperlink text
        // Print the hyperlink URL
