Browser Widget Document Download

Hey BR,

The link is going to a content management system(Adobe I think)

The file name is buried in the html but not the path. It's in an iFrame but
it gets rendered by some unknown SW on iOS. On Android it just start
silently start downloading while displaying a white page. What I would like
to do is control where the PDF is being downloaded to and force a download
on iOS. I'm guessing(with great disappointment) that this would require a
change to the browser widget.

When I set the widget to the url the PDF displays.
When I put the url into a var  "put url (tURL) into MyVar" I see some
html/javascript in MyVar but no PDF. What I would like to do is download the
PDF on both mobile platforms. Is this even possible with LC?

BR: can you send the URL?

Typically, (probably you know this already, but FWIW) this shows a PDF in a
iFrame, some javascript "widget"  .

If you how source in the browser, (with PDF open) can you can find a
"direct" url for the PDF?
