I have a hyperlink on click of which i need to download some file using Save As Dialog box. How can this be implemented?

1 solution


try this you can show saveas dialog box

Response.ContentType = "image/jpeg";
Response.AppendHeader("Content-Disposition","attachment; filename=SailBig.jpg");
Response.TransmitFile( Server.MapPath("~/images/sailbig.jpg") );

Here you can change contentType as your requirement.

All the Best

place linkbutton instead of hyperlink

directly write as code

<asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink1" runat="server" NavigateUrl ="Downloads/hosting.rar">HyperLink
browser can show bydefault for rar or zip files when you write like this

and write this code in linkbutton click event.
