Hi
I want to introduce a functionality in my application, in which an attachment when clicked on a JSP page should open the Open/save dialog box. and On clicking Open, the pdf should open.
I am writing a servlet for this. The code in the servlet has the following lines:

response.addHeader("Content-disposition","inline; filename="+fileName);
response.setContentType("application/pdf");
response.setContentLength(ret.length);
response.getOutputStream().write(ret);
response.getOutputStream().flush();

Now when I click on the attachment link....It first opens me a bank window then opens the open/save dialog box. On clicking Open I am able to open the pdf file or when I click save I am able to save the document to local system.
However I dont know how to remove the blank window that is opening up when I click on the attachment.

Please advise if anyone has encountered similar scenario. I am using IE6.
