i am facing a problem related to save as dialog box.

i've written the below code in the jsp page mentioned in the to open an xml file.

response.setHeader("Content-Disposition","attachment; filename=\""+Constants.ReportName.CUSTOMER_DRAWING_NUMS+"\"");

before opening the xml file, a save as dialog box is appearing. when i click on the save as dialog box, xml file is getting saved but the window is not getting closed automatically.

so, i changed the code by replacing attachment with inline as follows:

response.setHeader("Content-Disposition","inline; filename=\""+Constants.ReportName.CUSTOMER_DRAWING_NUMS+"\"");

now, save as dialog box is not coming and the xml page is opening.

Please let me know, how the save-as dialog box should come and on saving the popup should be closed.

Despite the fact that the data you are transferring happens to be XML, this is not a question about XML at all. Let's move it to somewhere better.

You can't. The easiest solution is not to use a popup.
