Can't be done. The web app has no control over what the client (the browser) does with the download, and that's a good thing.

If you're just concerned with your own browser, then you can set its download directory to "c:\temp", and instruct it to store all downloads there directly without asking. But other people's browsers are beyond the web app's control.

Hi,

When we click to download the file, We will get the dialogue box asking for either open a file or location to save the file. My question is that, Is it possible to do: when user clicks on a file, the file should open within the browser instead of showing us the dialogue box.

Thanks,

Rahul

That's up to the user to decide. That dialog generally has a little checkbox saying something like "always open files of this type" or some such. If the user checks it, then that's what will happen from then on. But there's nothing the web app can do to cause that.

Thanks for reply.

In my case when i download files, it ask each and every time when i clicks. I am always using Mozilla browser for this. I think there is some response parameter to set for viewing instead of downloading... because i have read that somewhere but now, i did not remember it.

Thanks

Rahul

There isn't. In the Firefox Options dialog, check the "General" tab - it has the options related to downloading files.
