hi,

I have this requirement where user will click on link to open text file and file will be opened in text editor.
I thought of first downloading file in a folder but again i need to have that folder on client machine.I cant even create folder on client machine from server.

1 . Is there any way i can create folder on client machine from server ?
2 . Can I open file in default text editor on client machine from server ?


Thanks in advance.


Thanks
