Code: [Select]
function filedownload(){
var text = document.getElementById("mytextarea").value;
var blob = new Blob([text], { type: "text/plain"});
var anchor = document.createElement("a");
anchor.download = "mydata.txt";
anchor.href = window.URL.createObjectURL(blob);
anchor.target ="_blank";
anchor.style.display = "none"; // just to be safe!
document.body.appendChild(anchor);
anchor.click();
