The Line class has the following members.


Name Description


Rect. A rectangle around the current line of text.


IReadOnlyList<Word>. A list of Word objects that comprise the current line of text.

The following code example enumerates through the text of an OCR result and writes to a string, preserving line breaks. It then writes the string to a TextBlock named tbResults.

private void OCR_OcrCompleted(object sender, OcrCompletedEventArgs e)
    // Make sure there is text.
    if (e.Result.Lines.Count == 0)
        tbResults.Text = "No text found.";

    // Read the text and print it to tbResults.
    string s = "";
    foreach (Line l in e.Result.Lines)
        foreach (Word w in l.Words)
            s += w.Value + " ";
        s += "\n";
    tbResults.Text = s;
