Inappbrowser file download

#1

Hello

I’m developing an app using ionic 3.0 inappbrowser…
Use inappbrowser to open a specific web page,
If you click the link to download the file, the file will not be downloaded.
I’m must use ‘_blank’ mode.
Is there a solution?

please help me thanks.

Once you open a page in a browser window the control goes to the browser and will be get manipulated by the web page it self. If You want to download it through IONIC application then use file transfer plugin.

I am using file transfer plugin for android and inappbrowser for ios. The link will open in new browser window in safari and that’s all. The browser has its own download function and you can’t control it.
