Extract hyperlinks from document page area

GroupDocs.Parser provides the functionality to extract hyperlinks from document page area by the GetHyperlinks(PageAreaOptions) and GetHyperlinks(Int32, PageAreaOptions) methods:

IEnumerable<PageHyperlinkArea> GetHyperlinks(int pageIndex, PageAreaOptions options);
IEnumerable<PageHyperlinkArea> GetHyperlinks(PageAreaOptions options);

These methods return a collection of PageHyperlinkArea object:

PageThe page that contains the text area.
RectangleThe rectangular area on the page that contains the text area.
TextThe hyperlink text.

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

// Create an instance of Parser class
using (Parser parser = new Parser(filePath))
    // Check if the document supports hyperlink extraction
    if (!parser.Features.Hyperlinks)
        Console.WriteLine("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
    IEnumerable<PageHyperlinkArea> hyperlinks = parser.GetHyperlinks(options);
    // Iterate over hyperlinks
    foreach (PageHyperlinkArea h in hyperlinks)
        // Print the hyperlink text
        // Print the hyperlink URL
