Hello Das,

Ok, so patience was needed :)

What was the original value?  What value did you end up using?  How fast/slow is your internet access?

I just looked it up and .crdownload means the download is in progress.

But they never finish.

Maybe it refers to the original file creation not being complete.

I want to use $pdfcomplete to make sure of this but it’s not working in my pdf printing object class

So I went with a repeat loop that has sleep(500) in it, and a max of 10 iterations, testing if file is complete

I am using $settemp to create the file, so I don’t know if that works with "test if file exists"

Meaning I don’t know if those as files appear already created even though they are still being filled up with PDF

The PDF I’m testing with shouldn’t take long to compose

I am using JSFile, the Forms object, to download files.

I am using it exactly the way they do it in the demo.

I am on Windows 10, Omnis Studio 10.22

I am getting a file in my downloads folder each time I do it, but the files are named like:

Unconfirmed 48645.crdownload
Unconfirmed 29538.crdownload

What does this mean? How can I fix it?

Does it have to do with: In the field JSMediaType I am putting 'application/PDF'

Is that a Mac thing I’m trying to do on Windows?

What is the windows way of saying the Media is a PDF?

Can you think of any other reasons I might be getting these strange files in my downloads folder?
