I have a fundamental question, but can’t seem to get a straight answer. When screen scraping with UiPath (or more generally, any RPA tool), must the application associated with the document necessarily be open on the client machine for scraping to occur, and would this make the process always be considered ‘attended’?
I would like to have a UiPath process determine what PDF filename to scrape, and automatically put certain fields from the PDF into UiPath variables. I note the PDF fields are not captured using Get PDF Text since they are text contained in a ‘field’ container, thus screen scraping appears the only option, apart from writing a Custom Activity in Visual Studio. Any referrals to a relevent example nuget package/VS project code would be greatly appreciated.
