Make a download button using Reactjs

by vsasikalabe Updated: Jan 24, 2023

On click of the button, call the download API for the file which needs to be downloaded as a BLOB. Create url out of the blob and store the object downloaded in the browser memory. Click the hidden anchor tag programatically which links to the above generated url.The appendChild() is a method of the Node interface. The appendChild() method allows you to add a node to the end of the list of child nodes of a specified parent node. In this method, the childNode is the node to append to the given parent node. The appendChild() returns the appended child.The URL revokeObjectURL() method releases an existing object URL which was created by using URL createObjectURL(). This method is called when you are finished using an object URL and don't want the browser to keep the reference to that file any longer.SVG images can be written directly into the HTML document using the <svg> </svg> tag. To do this, open the SVG image in VS code or your preferred IDE, copy the code, and paste it inside the <body> element in your HTML document.

Code:

In this solution we use the React library.

Instructions

Follow the steps carefully to get the output easily.

  1. Install the Node.js and React on your IDE(preferable Visual Studio Code).
  2. Create React Application using npx create-react-app foldername.
  3. cd foldername
  4. npm i @babel/runtime
  5. Open the folder in IDE.
  6. Copy the code using "copy" button above and paste it in App.js file and also add path and size of the image within the svg tag.(remove the earlier code from App.js).
  7. import { useCallback, useRef } from "react"
  8. Refer DEMO for additional files.
  9. Open the terminal from IDE.
  10. npm start to run the file.
