On User Click Open Button It Should Open Txt File?
When the user clicks on "OPEN" button, It should open up that(.txt) file which is on the file server in ReadWrite Mode (like in notepad) without any Access Issues.

Or simply has to be openend as temporary READONLY .Txt File. So that the user can close after viewing it.

Forms Data Controls :: Save/open File From Hyperlink Or Button Press?
Problem: my templatefield buttons will not save/open my files. Also, I tried a hyperlink instead of the buttons and I couldn't get the navigateURL to show properly.

I am listing the contents of a folder by using a directoryinfo object, and binding it to a gridview. I then have added a template field with two button controls in it ("save" and "open"). I want to be able to list all the file names on the left side of the grid, and a link to download/save/open the file on the right. Since I want this all to be dynamically driven, I have to find a way to use my codebehind to determine the proper file url for opening, and not hardcode any values.This is as far as I have gotten. I am not sure what is the easiest way to do what I want to achieve...

I wrote a small sub procedure to fire off when a button is clicked, but I cannot debug it because the button click wants to make the page postback. I cannot figure out how to force this option off. Basically it the logic was directed at the "fullname" which is the physical file path, and the commandname from the button and then uses that to determine the path for opening the file.

I was also experimenting with a asp:hyperlink trying to set the navigateURL='<%# eval("fullname") %>' which logically makes sense...but when rendered to the client it shows the link as "file://C:mantissadocumentationfile.doc", and clicking that file does nothing in IE and causes an error in Firefox saying it cannot associate a known protocol with it.

I have seen a few different articles through searching that show some of the functionality I need, but no example is fully dynamic like I need. I'm still an novice asp developer, so I am not sure how to achieve the end result I want from the options available. I would *like* to keep it simple and just use a hyperlink and magically have that hyperlink wired up to the actual file. I do not wish to embed my "files" inside my pages, I only want them to open as a new window. The extensions mainly handled here will be .doc, .txt, and .pdf. I read about using response.addheader("content-disposition", etc) to prompt with a save/open dialog box...but again I am not sure how to pass all the variables to make it fully dynamic.


My code still has bits and fragments of all the different things I have attempted to use to make it work.

Web Forms :: Getting Hyperlink To Respond Like A Button Click Event?
I have some dynamically-changing text, which I would like to appear as a hyperlink (i.e. underlined text which changes colour as you hover the mouse over it). However, I would also like this text to behave like an asp:Button object when the user clicks on it. This is so I can add some VB.NET into the click event of the text. Does anyone know how I can do this?
