    Acrobat Performance Test Problem

    Looking for suggestions on a problem I'm having:

    One portion of a performance test I'm coding requires a timed catch when data is populated in a PDF file. Using a custom plugin a "preview" selection is made on a dialog....the clock is started when the selection is made and stopped when the data actually appears in the PDF file. I know by reading previous posts that getting anything out of a PDF is unlikely, any other suggestions? I've tried keying off of something like debug view but not having much luck with that. What I really need is some kind of event tracker which throws everything happening in Acrobat. Any exeperience out there?

    PS There is NOTHING else happening from the GUI side to indicate the data has been populated. Thanks

    Re: Acrobat Performance Test Problem

    We successfully extract contents of an acrobat file by loading it in a web browser with the acrobat plugin. We can then do a select all --> copy to the clipboard operation into a list of string and compare the results to expected results stored in a text file (as list of strings).

    You could make a routine that does this kind of thing every 5 seconds and when the current and previous lists of strings are identical, then the PDF is complete, and exit after y seconds if they never match.
