I'm not sure what you are asking. You just want to extract a text from the pdf so you can find that text in the search box?

Read this:

http://www.phpclasses.org/package/6155-PHP-Extract-text-from-PDF-files.html

Down the code here:

http://www.phpclasses.org/browse/file/31030.html

This code will extract text from the pdf file.

XPDF package on Linux is the only one I've heard of that works. It makes use of shell/system commands, so unsure if it works on shared hosting.
