Download FormField content

Hi there


I'm trying to download the content of a FormField and i can't manage to create an URL to work with IG.downloadAndSave.

This is what i managed to do and it works in a browser:

var xmltext = '<tag1>asd</tag1>'; //IG.getFieldById('TEST').getValue();

var filename = "RENNSExport";
var pom = document.createElement('a');
var bb = new Blob([xmltext], {type: 'text/xml'});

pom.setAttribute('href', window.URL.createObjectURL(bb));
pom.setAttribute('download', filename);
pom.dataset.downloadurl = ['text/xml',, pom.href].join(':');

I would really apreciate some help!


Thanks a lot,

Hi Cosmin,


Why don't you use the standard way of downloading files?


I guess the XML data is stored in database anyway, isn't it?

Hi there,


I really can't tell you why we didn't use the GMSC standard way.... Smiley Happy)

Thanks for the reminder. Of course it works fine.
