For IE browser better use embed-tag for pdf, look at this(i replace your pdf source ). it's work for me in IE 8+ and Chrome(and Opera ofc). you can try like below. Hide Copy Code. pdf" download="HTML 5. Hi, I've made a fill-in form in acrobat with a confirm button that makes all fields read-only when clicked. The Idea is that the client saves & prints.

However, you can also directly print the PDF document, without opening the file. In the first example, I have an iframe on my web page with a source the PDF. In this way, you can first view the contents of the PDF and then print its contents.
Also Read: The onclick property of the button will call a method named print. I am creating an object of the iframe on my web page, setting focus on the element and using the contentWindow.
In the second example, I do not have an inline iframe on my web page.
It doesn't seem to work in Safari, but it did work in Chrome. Also, changing the href attribute of the link once the user clicked it seemed to make it work in older versions of IE, but not in the latest versions of IE or Edge.
If you can't use form, another approach with downloadjs fit nice. Downloadjs use blob and html 5 file API under the hood:. Another way of doing in case you have a complex URL such as file. Thank you for your interest in this question.

Remaining answers, don't replicate the same feature. They either open a new window or relocate to different url.
Browsers that understand download treat it as a download, otherwise it's opened in a new tab. How can this be applied to a button object instead of just an a tag? Actually this only works for urls of the same origin as mentioned in the MDN docs.
With jQuery: Matt Ball Matt Ball k 76 Perfect, thanks. Do you happen to know if most servers will set the Content-Disposition to 'attachment' by default? There is no "most. Don't rely on it being set. This issue has been driving me ballistic, and this was the only option that worked and is supported by IE.
I'll add for any n00bs like me that to set the Content-Disposition, all you have to do is: No jquery. Even with proper Content-Disposition, Chrome gives a warning: It is apparently benign.
This doesn't seem to be working in Chrome right now, although it used to work.
I wonder if it kind of intermittently stops working in different versions of Chrome. Works in Chrome as of Version Does not work with images in Firefox v It just renders the image in the iframe. Old thread but it's missing a simple js solution: Stefanos Chrs Stefanos Chrs 2 8
