I am making use of command document.getElementById("id).runSaveFileDialog("filename") to get the windows "Save as dialog box" on click of some button.The "Save as"dialogbox is popping up every time when i click on the button but I am facing one strange issue in chrome version 14 and above and that too only in windows xp the "Save as dialog box" is popping up only some time.Click event is triggering every time but runSaveFileDialog("FileName") is functioning only some time.Instead of using runSaveFileDialog("FileName"), is there any other way from which i can get the "Save As" dialog box using Java script so that it should be compatible in all the browsers. Please suggest.

I agree. Here's the link:
