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?
