Close PDF file or Document

Post by swainpabitra » Mon Apr 27, 2015 5:19 pm

Hi Support Team,
I am using Ranorex 5.2 Tool.
I have dynamic reports with different titles in PDF formats.
So when i run test cases then it finds the specific PDF file name.
So, My question is that how i will apply or call close button in dynamic PDF files?

Thank You.

Hi,

If you don't know what title will be displayed in the PDF viewer, then you will have to use another attribute to identify that PDF viewer (e.g. processname, app name, etc.) and use "Close Application" action to close the PDF viewer. Hope this helps.

Hello odklizec,

Sorry i was out of town.
Yes,
In my Application i want only close PDF file which was generated by some criteria.
So first i find out common name of PDF file on title bar, like .PDF extension.
Because rest of name is created dynamically.
Then i call close button click event from repository.
if i use process name or app name then it will close rest PDF files that are opened.

Hope you understood. :D

Thank you.
