Anyone ever tried to verify the content of a PDF file? I have sucessfully manipulated the file if it includes a textfield or popuplist, content is a different story. Does SilkTest have the ability to get the text and do something with it from there?
I am not overly clear on what you want to
do. However via Silk as the driving force you certainly can navigate to particular pages via Adobe and use the menu to copy pages into the clipboard.
Then you can parse the clipboard list for textual content for your comparisons. You could even use this text as feedback to navigate to pages. It's primitive but depending on what you want to do, it could fit the bill.
BTW does anyone know if later versions of Adobe have an export to other formats of files like txt or html?? (I doubt the translation to Word would help you at all :-)
