How to call the Abbyy OCR engine in C# application to read in a pdf file and output the searchable pdf after OCR?

Any document or sample codes for reference?

Simply creating a searchable PDF using FlexiCapture Engine is not a typical scenario, as FlexiCapture Engine is primarily used in data-capture scenarios. However, an option is available to export the recognized images as searchable PDFs, see the IImageExportParams::CreateSearchablePDF property. For a detailed description of the property see the Developer's Help file article API Reference → Objects → Export Parameters Objects → ImageExportParams.

In case you are using some other ABBYY SDK product, please specify which one (e.g. FineReader Engine, Cloud OCR SDK etc.)
