Hi All,

I have a requirement where i have created a custom button on the detail page of any record of a custom object. on click of the button a new window will be opeened with a VF page rendering as PDF. now my requirement is to download the page with out displaying the page. I mean on click of the button the VF page should be downloaded.

Please note the data is generated in the VF page based on the record id of the record which is being passed to page on click of the custom button.

var session = "{!$Api.Session_ID}"; 
sforce.apex.execute("yourvfpage","generatePdf",  // change the page name
{idList:"{!yourCustomObj.Id}",  //change as per your object api name
sessionId:session});
