Hi, I need to create custom activity for (read pdf text and read pdf with ocr )in UiPath. please help with code.
do you need a library code in UiPath tool? or a custom code using invoke code activity? or a visual studio code?
Visual Studio code
why not use UiPath activities?
As suggested by others ,
you can use UiPath’s own activities for read plain text pdf and text from pdf using ocr.
But you still prefer creating your own custom activity, you can explore couple of below libraries:
i. Aspose library

ii. Bytescout library

iii. IronPDF library
