I have a c# desktop app which connects to a site via a web browser control. The problem is I need to navigate to a specific section and download a excel file which is generated from a postback. I would like to either automate this process or bypass the file download dialog and save the file directly to a local drive. Problem The link is not a standard url. The site uses a postback script to get the file needed which then displays the file download dialog box. E.g. When you click on the button (javascript: postback) the file download dialog box is automatically loaded.

As stated I want to bypass the save options and automatically store the file in a predefined location. Any help would be much appreciated.

Does the application contains self Webbrowser? If not you can't do this with as every user has its account privilege that has option to restrict the process.
