    Hi Selva,

    You just need to bind the "data" property of the FileDownload UI element with a context attribute of type XSTRING. You should somehow read the content of the pdf, convert it into an XSTRING format and assign that value to the XSTRING attribute. The "text" which you maintain for the FileDownload UI element appears for the user as an LinkToAction. When he/she clicks up on that particular text, the system reads the data in the XSTRING attribute & converts it into the corresponding data. So your major task would be to read & convert the PDF file into XSTRING format. The rest of the process is very straightforward.
