i have my function that generate my PDF, this works fine (the function is in my block).

After that, i want to show the window with this (this is in my controller)

header("Content-Length: " . filesize ( $fullUrl ) );
header("Content-type: application/octet-stream");
header("Content-disposition: attachment; filename=".basename($fullUrl));
header('Expires: 0');
header('Cache-Control: must-revalidate, post-check=0, pre-check=0');

but readfile doesn't do anything. Why ?


Please try below code

    $objectManager = \Magento\Framework\App\ObjectManager::getInstance();
    $fileFactory = $objectManager->create('\Magento\Framework\App\Response\Http\FileFactory');
    $fileName = 'example'.\date('m-d-Y_hia').'.txt';
    $pdfObject = @file_get_contents($fullUrl);
