C# - Force Download Of A File From Memory With Support For Downloading More Than Once?

Feb 20, 2011

I am dynamically generating a file from server based on user input. I need to provide a download button which, upon clicking, downloads a file to the user's file system. Also, the user might click the same button twice, upon which the file should download again.The dynamic generation of file rules out the HttpResponse.TransmitFile() option, which suports mutliple download.Almost every other option I have come across needs Response.End() to be invoked, which prevents a second download.How do I satisfy the 'multiple download" requirement?Read up on Virtual Path providers, which might enable me to use TransmitFile(), but that looks like an overkill for such a simple requirement.

Download Button - File Downloading Cancels Other Operations

Apr 13, 2012

In my project, I've created a download button. This button shall perform 3tasks:

1. Change label text
2. Download file
3. Make the button invisible

The following code changes the label text and make the button invisible:


Protected Sub btnDownload_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnDownload.Click
lblDownload.Text = "<h3>Thank you for downloading </h3>"
btnDownload.Visible = False
End Sub

When I add a piece of code that handles the file download, the label text is not changed and button remains visible.
Here is the code:

Protected Sub btnDownload_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnDownload.Click
Dim URL As String = "~/myfile.exe"
Dim fileInfo As FileInfo = New FileInfo(Server.MapPath(URL))
If fileInfo.Exists Then

[Code] ....

File downloading cancels other operations.

Response - Finding Memory Usage During Download?

Jan 22, 2010

On an ASP.net site at my place of work, the following chunk of code is responsible for handling file downloads (NOTE: Response.TransmitFile is not used here because the contents of the download are being streamed from a zip file):


I've just read about the 'buffer' property of the Response object. If I set that to false, will that prevent the Response.BinaryWrite() calls from buffering the data in memory? In general, what is a good way to limit memory usage in this situation? Perhaps I should stream from the zip to a temporary file, then call Response.TransmitFile()?

EDIT: In addition to possible solutions, I'm very interested in explanations of the memory usage issue present in the code above. Why would this consume far more than 1MB, even though Response.Flush is called on every loop iteration? Is it just the unnecessary heap allocation that occurs on every loop iteration (and doesn't get GC'd right away), or is there something else at work?

How To Force Client Browser To Download Images From Server Rather Using Its Cache

May 20, 2010

Assume a simple aspx data entry page in which admin user can upload an image as well as some other data. They are stored in database and the next time admin visits that page to edit record, image data fetched and a preview generated and saved to disk (using GDI+) and the preview is shown in an image control.

This procedure works fine for the first time however if the image changes (a new one uploaded) the next time the page is surfed it shows previously uploaded image. I debugged the application and everything works correct. The new image data is in database and new preview is stored in Temp location however the page shows previous one. If I refresh the page it shows the new image preview. I should mention that preview is always saved to disk with one name (id of each record as the name).

I think that is because of IE and other browsers use client cache instead of loading images each time a page is surfed. I wonder if there is a way to force the client browser to refresh itself so the newly uploaded image is shown without user intervention.

Web Forms :: Downloading A File - File Name Is Shown Incorrectly On Opening

Apr 21, 2010

we are working on a file download page. We want to download a file with a name with spaces and accents. Although the filename is shown correctly on the filedownload dialog, when we click open, the file name is shown with %e1%ba%a3n%20... on notepad. ('Save as' shows the correct name) This problem only happens in Internet Explorer.

Is there anyway we can Display the file name correctly (on the target application) after opening it (without saving) from file download dialog ?

We use this code to set the filename :

fileName = Server.UrlPathEncode(fileName);
Response.AppendHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment; filename="" + fileName + """);

Downloading A File From Outside The Webroot?

Jul 15, 2010

I'm trying to write come code for users to download files, but the files are located above the webroot (e.g. c:downloads)

I've found some code online that allows me to download a file via a url parameter/argument which is perfect, but the files need to be located within the website structure.

<%@ Page language="vb" runat="server" explicit="true" strict="true" %><script language="vb" runat="server">Sub Page_Load(Sender As Object, E As EventArgs)Dim strRequest As String = Request.QueryString("file") '-- if something was passed to the file querystringIf strRequest <> "" Then 'get absolute path of the fileDim path As String = Server.MapPath(strRequest) 'get file object as FileInfoDim file As System.IO.FileInfo = New System.IO.FileInfo(path) '-- if the file exists on the serverIf file.Exists Then 'set appropriate headersResponse.Clear()Response.AddHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment; filename=" & file.Name)Response.AddHeader("Content-Length", file.Length.ToString())Response.ContentType = "application/octet-stream"Response.WriteFile(file.FullName)Response.End 'if file does not existElseResponse.Write("This file does not exist.")End If 'nothing in the URL as HTTP GETElseResponse.Write("Please provide a file to download.")End IfEnd Sub</script>
Source: http://www.xefteri.com/articles/show.cfm?id=8

how this can be modified so that it can access files outside the webroot?

I'd like it so that I can create an href like: <a href="download.aspx?file=test.pdf">Download File</a> and then the code will download the file from c:downloads est.pdf
