Re: [QF-Test] How to record the redirection to a pdf file by following a link ?

Hello Julie,

a PDF document is not displayed by the browser itself but with the
help of a plugin. QF-Test has no control over that embedded component,
you could do nothing with it. Therefore QF-Test handles PDF files as
downloads. That way you can save the file and use other means to
verify it, e.g. by processing it with a library, converting it to text
or by opening it with acrobat reader and saving the contents as plain
text using the procedure saveAsText

http://www.qfs.de/include/qfs_pkgdoc/qfs_pkgdoc.html#qfs.autowin.acrobat.saveAsText

from our standard library qfs.qft.

Best regards,
    Greg
