Extjs Download File

Active1 year, 5 months ago

The problem is very simple: i have to download a file when i submit a form, it's an ajax call when the form is submitted which lets me build a file with the data taken from the form, server side, and then send it as a link to an alert. The fact is that my boss want the file to be downloaded directly and not through a link in an alert.

I have trying to implement the export functionality in ExtJS 5 using form submit method. And I had look at the following stackoverflow link, it helps but not fully.

In my case i facing an issue after the request response is successful, getting invalid JSON encoding error.Even i tried to change the reader from JSON reader to some other string reader(mentioned in link), but it is quite successful for some reason.


Error Message:-

Output response from Java servlet(CSV):-

I think because of this encoding issue,even after the request returns 200 success status; the browser download window is not getting poped up! You help is much appreciated, thanks in advance!

I have modified the code something like below, but still the browser download is not happening event though the response is 200.

export can be achieved with ajax call, creating a Blob out of the response and saving using msSaveBlob. this works in modern browsers ie10 and above

Do you have any headers configuration for the response?

Create a Sencha OnPostDownloader component like this using invisible form and 0 height iframe.
