FileDownloader for Grid

Author

<100

An extension that either adds a new download column to Grid or uses a specified column for the task.

See the ReadMe for a list of known issues.

Note: push or polling required!

Update: check out new GridActionRenderer add-on's DownloadActionGrid for a simplified use case that supports column reordering out of the box.

Sample code

 /**
     * Adds a GridFileDownloader extension that adds a download column to the
     * Grid since no existing propertyId is specified.
     *
     * @param grid
     */
    private void addGridFileDownloader(Grid grid) {
        new GridFileDownloader(grid,
                new GridFileDownloader.GridStreamResource() {

                    @Override
                    public InputStream getStream() {

                        if (data == null) {
                            return new ByteArrayInputStream(new byte[0]);
