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.
