    Hi there
            one of our applications uses a PDF to display some information to the user, now I know that test studio doesn’t support PDF documents either in a browser or standalone, but I have been able to do some testing of the PDF file using the iTextSharp library for c#, the only problem is I need the file to be on my local hard disk and I don’t know how to get test studio to download the PDF from the link. Basically I want test studio to right click the link and select "save target as..." and then save the file to my hard drive. How do I do that?

    Hello Carl,

    Test Studio is able to download a file directly with a left click on the link.

    I recorded a short video as a demonstration. 

    If it is really necessary to be with a right click you should use Desktop Mouse Click (see attached screen shot) and then via a coded step press down arrow four times (if the "Save target as" is the 4th from the top in the context menu for example) and hit Enter:


    Note that you need to add an assembly reference to System.Windows.Forms.dll and a using statement for the System.Windows.Forms namespace. 

    As a last step you should have again Handle "Download" dialog step.

    Here is another video that demonstrates it.

    Hope this helps.

    All the best,
