does anyone here have experieces with stream result type?
please help



if i use "link download", everything is ok except a new window always pops up.
if i use "button download", a download confirm dialog pops up and asks me what i want to do----open, save, or cancel, so far so good.
but if i choose open, another confirm dialog will pop up, and i need to click open again to open the file. (BTW: save and cancel work just fine.)
i have been working on this for 4 hours and have no clue.
please help.
thanks in advance.

and another question about stream result type.
what if the content for download is not from a file by constructed dynamically, do i need to create a file for it?
