C# - Download Text As A File From A Webpage?

Sep 2, 2010

I'm downloading text from a website and I want to have the user be able to save it as a file. So, I have the following code that does just that.

protected void DownloadFile(string fileName, string content)
{
Response.Clear();
Response.ClearContent();
Response.ClearHeaders();
Response.AddHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment; filename=" + fileName);
Response.ContentType = "text/plain";
Response.Write(content);
Response.End();
}

The problem I am having is that I get an exception after this code runs. I believe it's due to the fact that I call Response.End(). So, every time a user downloads a file it redirects them to the generic error page because all generic exceptions redirect to that page.

how I can write text out to a file and not get this error? If I remove Response.End() I get my text and then the rest of the HttpResponse text, but I don't get the error.

C# - Generate File For Download Using Response.Write And Change Elements On The Webpage?

Aug 25, 2010

I am trying to change the text of a asp:textbox and collapse some ajaxToolkit:CollapsiblePanelExtenders within some ascx controls on my page as well as output a dynamically generated file. I have no problem collapsing the CollapsiblePanelExtenders and changing the text of the textbox from the codebehind or outputting a file. The problem arises when I want BOTH of these events to happen on the same postback. Unfortunately using Response.Write negates all of the other changes to the page.

Intermittent Bug - IE6 Showing File As Text In Browser Rather Than As File Download

Dec 30, 2010

In an ASP.NET WebForms 2.0 site we are encountering an intermittent bug in IE6 whereby a file download attempt results in the contents of the being shown directly in the browser as text, rather than the file save dialog being displayed. Our application allows the user to download both PDF and CSV files. The code we're using is:

HttpResponse response = HttpContext.Current.Response;
response.Clear();
response.AddHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment;filename="theFilename.pdf"");
response.ContentType = "application/pdf";
response.BinaryWrite(MethodThatReturnsFileContents());
response.End();

This is called from the code-behind click event handler of a button server control. Where are we going wrong with this approach? Edit Following James' answer to this posting, the code I'm using now looks like this:

HttpResponse response = HttpContext.Current.Response;
response.ClearHeaders();
// Setting cache to NoCache was recommended, but doing so results in a security
// warning in IE6
//response.Cache.SetCacheability(HttpCacheability.NoCache);
response.AppendHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment; filename="theFilename.pdf"");
response.ContentType = "application/pdf";
response.BinaryWrite(MethodThatReturnsFileContents());
response.Flush();
response.End();

However, I don't believe that any of the changes made will fix the issue.

I am running an ASP.NET site in VB. Is there a way to tell the web app to redirect to a specific aspx page when it receives a request for a specific file?

Web Forms :: Controlling File Name Of The File Opened Directly From File Download Dialog?

Jul 26, 2010

I am downloading file from database using the following code. This code downloads an excel file from the database which has a macro attached to it when it is opened. This macro reads file name of the excel file and uses it for its computation. Everthing works file if user saves the file on his harddisk and then open if but if he directly opens the file from the dialog(by hitting 'Open' button) then file name of the opened excel file comes out be the name of the webform that has the above code and this leads to error in the macro. Is there any option through which i can control the name of the file if user directly opens the file from dialog or the option to disable or remove 'Open' button form the dialog?

C# - Save A Binary File In SQL Server As BLOB And Text (or Get The Text From Full-Text Index)?

Mar 26, 2010

Currently we are saving files (PDF, DOC) into the database as BLOB fields. I would like to be able to retrieve the raw text of the file to be able to manipulate it for hit-highlighting and other functions.Does anyone know of a simple way to either parse out the files and save the raw text on save, either via SQL or .net code. I have found that Adobe has a filtdump utility that will convert the PDF to text. Filtdump seems to be a command line tool, and i don't see a way to use a file stream. And what would the extractor be for Office documents and other file types?-or-Is there a way to pull out the raw text from the SQL Full text index, without using 3rd party filters?Note i am trying to build a .net & MSSql solution without having to use a third party tool such as Lucene

Viewing File Using .net / To Copy/download File To Local User Machine And To Open

Nov 16, 2010

In our application, we allow user to upload documents which can be PDF, Doc, XLS, TXT. Uploaded documents will be saved on web server. We need to display link for each document user uploaded and when user click on that link, it should open relevant document. it is expected to have required software to open relevant documents.

To upload document, we use saveAs method of FileUpload control and it works absolutely fine.Now, how to view it?I believe, i need to copy/download file to local user machine and need to open it using Process.Start.For that i need to find user local temp directory. if i put path.GetTempPath(), it gives me web server directory and copy file there.

File.Copy(
sPath + dataReader["url"].ToString(),
Path.GetTempPath() + dataReader["url"].ToString(),
true);

IE Errors On File Download Through .ashx File With Caching Turned Off?

Feb 1, 2011

I have a simple 'file download' generic handler which sets the response contenttype and headers before sending the file through the same response.

I also have Response.Cache.SetCacheability(HttpCacheability.server) set in the global.asax.

As I have noticed from various sources, Internet Explorer doesn't like this no-cache setting and gives an error when trying to download the file (requested site unavailable or cannot be found).

I thought maybe I could override this setting in the .ashx page, so I alter the response's cacheability setting to public. This did not solve the issue. removing the line from global.asax does solve the problem but obviously affects the whole site.

Is there a way of setting the cachability just for my generic handler?
