Hi all,

I tried the following code to download a file.
String fileName = "abc.xml";
response.setHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment;filename=" + fileName);

But when I execute this I get the file dialog,but when I click on the open button I get "Action cancelled".But I want to download the file.Can anybody help?
