I use the matlab function extractFileText( ) (from the Text Analytics Toolbox) to read PDF file.
But how do I find out number of pages in a PDF file?

I don't know of anything built into MATLAB that would provide this. It's possible you could write a batch file/shell script to do this for you using an external tool like pdftk, ghostscript, or qpdf.
