Prompting a file download from the Tracy console

Robin S

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of a way to prompt a file download from code that is executed in the Tracy Console panel? When I try things that would normally prompt a download if executed in a template file, such as...

header('Content-type: text/csv');
header("Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=myfile.csv");
// ...


$files->send($myfile, ['forceDownload' => true]);

...the output is always sent directly to the Console panel and no download is prompted.

No big deal if it's not possible but sometimes it would be handy to export some data or files in the form of a download using the Console panel. Maybe @adrian or anyone else knows a solution for this? Thanks in advance.

Hey @Robin S - good question. I have played around a little without any success. I feel like I am missing something obvious like output buffering getting involved, but perhaps it is just down to the way I instantiate a PW template and render it via AJAX https://github.com/adrianbj/TracyDebugger/blob/ec79b76bf0443118a6c402c9ffe2a9c491a8b5cc/includes/CodeProcessor.php#L197-L203 

I'll keep mulling it over, but not sure what the solution might be at the moment.
