How to download doc, excel or pdf files using Javascript?

Dung Do Tien Mar 12 2021 64

I have a pdf path file, I want to download it directly after call API.

 $.post(form.attr('action'), data, function (response) {
    if (response !== null && response.Success) {
        window.location.href = response.Data; // response.Data = "https://example.com/file/report.pdf"
    }
});

I use window.location.href but it does not work for me

    You can use <iframe> to help download file such as below:

     <iframe id="your_iframe" style="display:none;"></iframe>
    <script>
        function Download(url) {
            document.getElementById('your_iframe').src = url;
        };
        
        var url ="http://example.com/statics/file_name.pdf";
        Download(url);
        
    </script>

    I hope it work for you.
