pdf.proxyTarget String (default: "_self")

A name or keyword indicating where to display the document returned from the proxy.

If you want to display the document in a new window or an iframe, the proxy method has to set the Content-Disposition header of the response to inline; filename="<fileName.pdf>".

Example - opening the generated document in a new window

<div id="diagram"></div>
      pdf: {
          forceProxy: true,
          proxyURL: "/save",
          proxyTarget: "_blank"
      dataSource: {
          data: [{ "items": [{ items: [{}] }] }],
          schema: { model: { children: "items" } }
      layout: {
          type: "tree"

  var diagram = $("#diagram").getKendoDiagram();
