Hi @Ticko di 

Sharing the oml in which we are downloading the content then redirecting to other screen.
you just need to put download functionality to another screen action and call it inside the download pdf and redirect action as shown below.

Then we call the download screen action inside main action.

Hi @Ticko di,

Hi Ticko,

One of the approach for your use-case  for Traditional application (Please mention the application type in your post for community to help you better) could be to 

  • Download the pdf using custom JS (using RunJavaScript server action) and then redirect to the target screen. 
  • I have set the pdf download button Method type to Ajax Submit

JS Snippet:

const linkSource = 'data:application/pdf;base64,' + '" + EncodeJavaScript(BinaryToBase64.Base64) + "';
    const downloadLink = document.createElement('a');
    const fileName = '" + EncodeJavaScript(PageTitle) + "' + '.pdf';
    downloadLink.href = linkSource;
    downloadLink.download = fileName;

I hope this helps you!
