A click on the "PDFExport" button creates a PDF file containing the current page. This is then downloaded to the local computer using the DOWNLOADFILE function and then deleted using the DELETEFILE function.

A click on the "SendEmail" button creates a PDF file that contains the "SalesDashboard" page twice. On the first page, the menu widget with the name "Region" is switched to "USA", on the second page to "Germany". The generated PDF file is then sent as an email attachment by calling up the SENDEMAIL function and deleted using the DELETEFILE function.
