How to force browser to use Save As popup screen when downloading a generated document
Hi all, I am generating a CSV document and would like for the users to everytime have the possibility to decide where to save the file. I have a button and when pressing it, the file is being generated and the browser automatically downloads it. However, depending on how the browser is configured, it downloads the file directly to the previously set Downloads folder. I want to force the browser to ask for location to save via the Save As popup screen. Would that be possible in Mendix? If yes, how? Thanks!
This is a setting in the user’s browser, so something you wouldn’t be able to change from your Mendix application.
You could prompt your user to change this setting. For example, in Chrome you can find it in Settings / Advanced / Downloads, then check “Ask where to save each file before downloading”.
