File Download Widget

Provides a link with a downloadable file. The user needs to select a string or path flow variable pointing to an existing file. This node is typically connected to a file writer (e.g. CSV writer), whereby the writer exposes its destination file as variable that is selected in this node's configuration dialog.

The node supports custom CSS styling. You can simply put CSS rules into a single string and set it as a flow variable 'customCSS' in the node configuration dialog. You will find the list of available classes and their description on our documentation page.
