Want to download the file as it is i had uploaded into data base.

Could anybody please help me out???

Here Is my Code For uploading a File.

protected void btn4_click(object sender, EventArgs e)
string filePath = uploadimage1.PostedFile.FileName;

string filename = Path.GetFileName(filePath);

string ext = Path.GetExtension(filename);

string contenttype = String.Empty;

//Set the contenttype based on File Extension

switch (ext)

case ".doc":

contenttype = "application/msword";


case ".docx":

contenttype = "application/msword";


case ".txt":

contenttype = "text/plain";


case ".pdf":

contenttype = "application/pdf";


case ".rtf":

contenttype = "application/rtf";

case ".pptx":

contenttype = "application/ppt";



if (contenttype != String.Empty)

Stream fs = uploadimage1.PostedFile.InputStream;

BinaryReader br = new BinaryReader(fs);

Byte[] bytes = br.ReadBytes((Int32)fs.Length);

//insert the file into database
//intro is name of the file
// introdoc is document(longblob)

string strQuery = "insert into introduction(intro, introdoc,type)"+" values


MySqlCommand cmd4 = new MySqlCommand(strQuery);

cmd4.Parameters.Add("@Name", MySqlDbType.VarChar).Value = txtname1.Text;
cmd4.Parameters.Add("@introdoc", MySqlDbType.LongBlob).Value = bytes;
cmd4.Parameters.Add("@ContenType", MySqlDbType.VarChar).Value= contenttype;

Server.ScriptTimeout = 12000;


ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript(this.GetType(), "", "alert('Please upload
