Read content of a pdf file.

Post by danuk » Tue Jul 23, 2019 6:32 am

I need to read contents of a pdf file created by Adobe reader. I have read the other threads on this blog on the same topic, following that i made sure the access related properties of the files are in line with the solution provided but still i wasnt able to get any text from the file

Ranorex takes the entire page as a object from which im not able to extract any data.

Ranorex version: 8.1
OS version: Windows 7

Hi danuk,

Reading PDFs is generally specific to the PDF reader itself and what accessibility they have built in. Personally, I have seen the most success with Firefox's built in PDF reader and Adobe Reader DC. If you are able to provide the PDF file, I will be happy to test this in my local controlled environments.
