test automation : verify data from pdf !!!!!

Post by siham » Thu Dec 22, 2016 10:45 am


I'm working on an application that generate a pdf document (adobe reader XI), in this document,i have the products i bought, that can contain 1 or 2 or many.

i need to verify my products and detail of each (quantity, price ....).

I can track elements, but my problem is that on my first page of document i can track the row and cell but in second page i can track only a row.

and when i have just one product, the track changes completety.

what should i do??

Thank's for help.

Unfortunately, it's pretty hard to suggest something reliable without seeing the PDF file. If you can read row/cell from the first page and not from the second page, then there is apparently something different in design/formatting of the second page design? So make sure both pages are formatted the same way or ask someone who created the original content before PDF conversion if all pages of the document are formatted the same way.
