Httpresponse - Why Are .docx Files Being Corrupted When Downloading From A Webpage

Mar 19, 2010

I have this following code for bringing page attachments to the user:


The problem is that all supported files works properly (jpg, gif, png, pdf, doc, etc), but .docx files, when downloaded, are corrupted and they need to be fixed by Office in order to be opened.

At first I didn't know if the problem was at uncompressing the zip file that contained the .docx, so instead of putting the output file only in the response, I saved it first, and the file opened successfully, so I know the problem should be at response writing.

Sharepoint - Downloaded Files Corrupted?

Aug 5, 2010

I have written the following code to download a file from sharepoint. The downloded file works fine in only some machines. For others, it says that the file is corrupted. The issue is for MS Office and image files, however the PDF is not having any issues. We have identified the issue of corruption as due to the addition of a hexadecimal number at the top of the file contents. When it is removed, the file gets opened correctly. The hexadecimal character has been traced out to be representing the file size in bytes. Why this is happening only in some machines and how can we fix it?

private void DownloadFile()
SPListItem item = GetFileFromSharepoint();

Why Does Custom HttpResponse Throw Exception On HttpResponse.End()

Jul 27, 2010

I'm writing some code in which I need to use my own HttpResponse object to capture the output from a method on another object that takes an HttpResponse as a parameter. The problem is, this other object (which I cannot modify) calls HttpResponse.End(), which causes an "Object reference not set to an instance of an object" exception to be thrown. What can I do about this?

Dim myStringbuilder As New StringBuilder
Dim myStringWriter As New IO.StringWriter(myStringbuilder)
Dim myResponse As New Web.HttpResponse(myStringWriter)

someObject.doStuffWithHttpResponse(myResponse) ' calls myResponse.End() and crashes

Here's some more complete information about the error, thrown from the following code in a console application:

Dim myStringbuilder As New StringBuilder
Dim myStringWriter As New IO.StringWriter(myStringbuilder)
Dim myResponse As New Web.HttpResponse(myStringWriter)
Catch ex As Exception
End Try

Here's the text of the exception:

System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
at System.Web.HttpResponse.End()

Downloading File From Webpage With Prompt?

Mar 26, 2010

I have VB code that parses XML data from a webpage. Up until 2 days ago the XML data could be viewed right on the page and I could just grab the HTML source code to get the information. Now they have changed the page to a link button to download the XML file.

The problem is that when I click on the XML link I get the 'File Download Prompt' which asks me to run or save the file. I figured I could just save the file to temp directory and then open it up to parse it in my VB app but I can't figure out how to grab the file from the browser in my application.

I'm working on a project that requires the ability to let a user download a pdf from a static location on the server. I'm reading the instructions from this website, it's an old post and I notice they specify in an update that Microsoft's MVC framework has long since included and Action Result that allows the same functionality they discuss thus rendering it obsolete, I've looked a bit online but haven't been able to find any resources that discuss this built-in functionality.

Uploading To And Downloading Files From The Server?

Nov 20, 2010

I am working on some project where I am needed to allow users to upload files, but only in pdf and .doc format. Now I know how to let users upload files, but I do not know how to check whether an uploading files is pdf and .doc or not. How could I know that? And how could I know the size of each file, for the file should be no greater than 3 MB?

Also, I have alloted a separate folder for the files that are uploaded by users. I have one page that displays the links to download the files in that folder. I needed to know how could I keep the track of the folder, for the files get uploaded every time? Or in other words, how could my 'downloads page' know about the files in that folder and create links for each file in that folder for the download? Also, if I create a link of a file for downloading purposes, will the file be downloaded when one clicks the link?

C# - Downloading Multiple Files Using Ihttphandler?

Oct 20, 2010

I'm working on a reporting script which runs a number of reports (pdf) on button click. The reports are created on the web server then I'd like the user to be given the option to download the files. I have worked out the script for downloading one file from the server. But I'm not sure how to download multiple files? (there will probably be about 50)

After I run one report I redirect the user to a http handler script.

Response.Redirect("Download.ashx?ReportName=" + "WeeklySummary.pdf");
public class Download : IHttpHandler {

Web Forms :: Time Out Downloading Large Files?

Jun 1, 2010

I used this sample to work around the issue we were having with large files. [URL] Unfortunately, when I attempt to download large files of 30MBs or more, the download times out and the user gets a partial download. It doesn't seem to be a consistant percentage of the download either. I attempted to download a 50MB file and got to 33MB. When trying a 30MB file, I downloaded 24MB.Below is my code.

if (File.Exists(strFilePath))
fileName = System.IO.Path.GetFileName(strFilePath);
system.IO.Stream iStream = null;
byte[] buffer = new Byte[10000];
int length;
long dataToRead;
iStream = new System.IO.FileStream(strFilePath, System.IO.FileMode.Open,
System.IO.FileAccess.Read, System.IO.FileShare.Read);
dataToRead = iStream.Length;
//FileInfo file = new FileInfo(strFilePath);
Response.ContentType = "application/octet-stream";
Response.AddHeader("Content-Length", iStream.Length.ToString());
Response.AddHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment; filename=" + fileName.Replace(" ", string.Empty));
while (dataToRead > 0)
if (Response.IsClientConnected)
length = iStream.Read(buffer, 0, 10000);..................

How To Create A HttpHandler For Downloading Files From The Server

Sep 22, 2010

I created a HttpHandler for downloading files from the server. It seems it is not handling anything...I put a breakpoint in the ProcessRequest, it never goes there.

public class DownloadHandler : IHttpHandler
public void ProcessRequest(HttpContext context)
//download stuff and break point

It never stops there, as mentioned. I also registered it in the web.config.

<add verb="*" path="????" type="DownloadHandler" />

I am not sure about the path part of that entry. What do I have to enter there? I am downloading txt files, but the URL does not contain the filename, I somehow have to pass it to the handler. How would I do this? Session maybe?

Web Forms :: Viewing And Downloading Existing Files

Jan 21, 2010

I want to view the existing files in a directory which is "~/Images". Now the code below works fine and it shows the files (with its name and other details) in this directory very well in a data grid. The name is a hyperlink, but when I click on it, it tries to view the file in "~" (i.e current working directory) instead of "~/Images" and therefore reports the server error as - "file not found".

Also, how to implement if I want the save as option when I click on the file, so that I could save it directory locally instead of viewing it in browser?

VB Code-

Imports System.IO
Partial Class uploaddoc
Inherits System.Web.UI.Page
Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
Dim dirInfo As New DirectoryInfo(Server.MapPath("~Images"))
articleList.DataSource = dirInfo.GetFiles("*.gif")
End Sub
End Class
<%@ Page Language="VB" AutoEventWireup="false" CodeFile="uploaddoc.aspx.vb" Inherits="uploaddoc" %>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">

VS 2012 - Generic Handlers For Downloading Files

May 21, 2014

I'm experiencing some strange behavior when using generic handler for downloading files from database to client using my web application.

Basically, everything works just fine in Chrome. But, when using Firefox the PDF documents don't get displayed entirely. Once downloaded to hard drive, they work fine. Excel documents get corrupted and users need to repair them in order to use them.

Below is the generic handler I use to download selected documents: Code:
Sub ProcessRequest(ByVal context As HttpContext) Implements IHttpHandler.ProcessRequest        
Dim documentID As Int32     
If Not context.Request.QueryString("documentID") Is Nothing Then         
  documentID = Convert.ToInt32(context.Request.QueryString("documentID"))
