Hello! I have recently been having a lot of trouble renaming my file to end with '.csv'. I have to download four different files, then rename each. I am automating a google docs like app which demands that my files end with 'csv'. However when I use suggestedFilename(), it names all of the downloads the same name which ends up getting the files confused even when they are saved to different variables. I tried using an object literal to run something like:
const filePath4 =
This doesn't work either and it keeps giving me the error that this path doesnt exist. Does anyone know how I could rename each a unique name that also ends with 'csv'? Thanks for any help.
This thread is trying to answer question "How can I rename each downloaded file with a unique name that also ends with 'csv'?"

You can use the
saveAs method from Playwright's
Download class to rename each downloaded file with a unique name ending in '.csv'. Here's how:
First, start waiting for the download event before clicking the download button.
const downloadPromise = page.waitForEvent('download'); await page.getByText('Download file').click();
Once the download event is triggered, get a reference to the
const download = await downloadPromise;
Next, generate a unique name for the downloaded file. Let's assume you have a function
generateUniqueName() for this purpose.
const uniqueName = generateUniqueName() + '.csv';
Then, specify the path where the download should be saved.
const savePath = 'https://ray.run/path/to/save/download/' + uniqueName;
Finally, save the downloaded file with the specified path and name.
And that's it! You've successfully renamed a downloaded file with a unique name ending in '.csv' using Playwright. Remember to always refer to the official Playwright documentation for more detailed information.
