[MBS] DynaPDF: Read text

Hello,

I am using the DynaPDF plugin.
I was able to add some text to an existing PDF (I've used the watermark sample).
For adding text I use this commands:
call pdf.WriteText(100, 100, "Some Text1")
call pdf.WriteText(100, 120, "Some more Text")

Now I need to read the text at these positions (100,100 and 100,120)

I had look at the samples "extract text" and "text extraction" but I can not figure out how to read some text from a given x/y position.
And I guess I need to provide a "length" for the text to read?
So basically I need something like this:
Text1 = pdf.readText (100,100,length)
Text2 = pdf.readText (100,120,length)

How could I do that?

thanks
Heinz

You get something like coordinate and text, so you need to extract all text and see if you find some text on the given coordinates.
