How do I code a program that allows users to highlight text in a PDF document, right-click, and lookup the text using my program – 'Search with Google'-style?

Search for Highlighted Text. To search for the highlighted text, again click on "Comment" and then the "Comment" icon in the left vertical toolbar. Once you click on it, all the highlighted text will appear in another bar next to the vertical toolbar. Now, you can select anyone from the list to check it.
