How to get text from opened MS Word document ?

Post by ostap_osa » Thu Jul 17, 2014 12:04 pm

Hi,

I am trying to get text from the MS Word document which is opened.
Actually what I am doing:
1. Open MS Word and create new document
2. Type "some words" on the document page
3. Try to verify text "some words" exists on the page

I need something like .GetText/.Text attribute but it is not available for such container:
Assert.Equals(repo.WordApp.Document.GetText(), "some words")

I have tried to do it by image validation/comparison, but it is not stable solution.

Thanks in advance,
Ostap

Hi Ostap,

Have you already added the word process or the specific WordDoc class name to the GDI Capture List as described at the following page: Testing of Legacy Applications?
After you added it you should be able to track the text elements of a Word document.

Regards,
Markus
