Thanks in advance for your kind reply.


You need to provide the downloadable file as a
, usually bound to the
Link component
. There’s different types of resources, so pick the one suitable for your case, depending on where the files are stored.

To force the browser to open “Save As” dialog, rather than displaying the file in the browser (if it’s HTML for example), you should set the Content-Disposition, as done in
this example
. Some discussion about it

There’s also the FileDownloader add-on, see
