PDF testing on Mobile (Android, iOS) apps

Post by hmsulehri » Thu Jan 26, 2017 10:10 am

Can we test PDF embedded mobile application in Ranorex, I tried but Ranorex apparently not recognizes PDFs in mobile applications, any final verdict on it?

Hi,

can you post a Ranorex snapshot. This might contain more information about the structure of the app.

Cheers,
Robin

Hi,

At first, make sure the PDF alone (outside mobile app) is traceable with Ranorex spy. If not, you may need to enable PDF Accessibility (as described here). But honestly, I seriously doubt PDF files will be traceable inside mobile apps, due to the enclosed nature of both Android and iOS (mainly for security reasons).
