Question

Getting/Extracting Text on PDF File (opened in browser)

Hi All,

We have a automation that include clicking links on a website that will open a PDF file in a new tab and we have to validate the data inside of it.

Our problem is, how can we get/extract text on the PDF file that was opened via browser?

Hope you can help us resolve this issue. Thank you.

You won't be able to extract anything while it is open in the browser. You should instead download the file and open it with the PDF component in the toolbox, then you can try to use those methods to extract the data you need.
