You need to have Content-Disposition as inline in Response Header.

Example given below...

Just as a heads-up, the 'inline' method does not seem to work in Explorer 8, and still shows the Open/Save dialog no matter what. I've tried other methods too, but cannot prevent the dialog from opening in IE8. :-/
Oh ok... Thanks for the info. IE 8 does not support many things.
We should ignore IE 8 in this case, I guess.
