Create a link to it and make sure that your browser is properly configured.

You can use the "Content-disposition" property to open the file inline or as an attachment.

Also, make sure you are setting the content type to "application/pdf".

Refer here for more details.

Be aware that any commands sent to a browser are only suggestions.

Someone could configure their browser to always download a PDF, and there is nothing you can do about that.
