You have a "WebBrowser" project in the source code examples that will 
show you how to use the 'Download' event.

Basically, the 'Download' event is raised when the WebView requests a 
download for a file it cannot directly handle.

The 'Download' event receives a 'WebDownload' object that allows to 
define where the download must be saved, to follow the download 
progression or to cancel it.

If you stop the 'Download' event, or if you don't define the 'Path' 
property of the WebDownload object, the download is cancelled.

Note that the 'Download' event is only implemented in the deprecated 
webview, not the new one.
