Please help I want to download a txt file or may be any file from server.I want to pop up a save / open option before downloading.For this i guess i have to set the mime type I have done like this <meta http-equiv="Content-Language" content="en-us"> <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="application/x-filler"> Do i have to do anything else?? coz this is opening the txt files in the browser itself Thanks a lot Moumita
What happens to a file sent to a browser depends on the Content-type and the browser. The browser maintains a list of MIME types (content types) and uses that list to determine what action to take. You can use the Content-Disposition header to hint that the normal handling should be overridden. Most modern browsers will take the hint.
