Satish here. If i click a link in a html page, it should ask for save as dialog box as in (Hot)mail attachments. I feel the response headers has to be manipulated in such a way that the browser does not understand.
COuld someone please help me.....
Try setting the Content-Disposition in the HTTP header of your response.
Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="suggestedName.ext"
Most browsers will interpret this header by popping up a save as dialog box. Just to be sure, you might also want to set the Content-Type header to application/octet-stream or to some other generic type that the browser doesn't know how to handle.
