Download File Using JavaScript jQuery

0 votes

I have a very similar requirement specified here.

I need to have the user's browser start a download manually when $('a#someID').click();

But I cannot use the window.href method, since it replaces the current page contents with the file you're trying to download.

Instead I want to open the download in new window/tab. How is this possible?

Download Files

  1. Create a DOMString that contains the URL representing the Blob object.
  2. Create an anchor tag <a> using the createElement property and assign download and href attributes to it.
  3. Set href as the URL created in the first step and download attribute as the downloaded file's name.
