OverloadDescription
Searches for and highlights an occurrence of a given text expression within the current page of the document displayed in the GdViewer control according to the parameters you have specified. If the format of the displayed document is other than supported text-based formats, which currently are DOCX, TXT, RTF and PDF, this method will fail.

Please note that currently defined highlighted regions are enriched with those recognized by this search. You can use the RemoveAllRegions method before starting new search to ensure the previously defined regions will remove.
