label (str)

A short label explaining to the user what this button is for.

data (str or bytes or file)

The contents of the file to be downloaded. See example below for caching techniques to avoid recomputing this data unnecessarily.

file_name (str)

An optional string to use as the name of the file to be downloaded, such as 'my_file.csv'. If not specified, the name will be automatically generated.

mime (str or None)

key (str or int)

An optional string or integer to use as the unique key for the widget. If this is omitted, a key will be generated for the widget based on its content. Multiple widgets of the same type may not share the same key.

help (str)

An optional tooltip that gets displayed when the button is hovered over.

on_click (callable)

An optional callback invoked when this button is clicked.

args (tuple)

An optional tuple of args to pass to the callback.
