Hi,

Is there a way to define the default name for a downloaded file.

response.stream = fs

This works like expected! But all files are named file.pdf or downloadfile.pdf.
thanks for any help

Hi.

Why are then named 'file.pdf'? Where does PDF come from?

The file is located on the local server where our service (with your component) is running.
example C:\xxxx\Solinf.pdf


Open as a filestream and sent to the client

Dim fs As New System.IO.FileStream(a, System.IO.FileMode.Open)
Args.Response.Stream = fs

On the client side the file is always downloaded as download.pdf (in Microsoft Edge) or pdf.pdf in Firefox

Hi.

You can try with content-disposition header in reply, as explained here:

Stackoverflow

But I personally have never tried it.
