While browsing forums today I came across a question which asked for a solution to download a file from a web server programmatically. The
solution is very simple and below is the code which achieves the goal. Here I am downloading a file asynchronously on Button Click.
Using the code

WebClient client = new WebClient();
client.DownloadFileCompleted += new AsyncCompletedEventHandler(client_DownloadFileCompleted);

void client_DownloadFileCompleted(object sender, AsyncCompletedEventArgs e)
