Hi, I am new to Java Script. I have a download button. When the button is clicked, I want to pop-up a File Download dialog box with the options open, save .. .I am not sure how to call the File download dialog box and also I need to download an Excel file when I click on the download button.I tried to use document.execCommand('saveas' ..). But it directly opens a Save As Html dialog and saves the html file. Can any one please explain me how to open File download dialog. Thanks a lot !!!
deepa, JavaRanch is a community of people from all over the world, many of who are not native English speakers. While using abbreviations like "u" instead of spelling out "you" is convenient when text messaging your friends on a cell phone or in a chat room, it presents an extra challenge to those that are already struggling with English. Additionally, such shortcuts may confound automated translation tools that patrons of the Ranch may be making use of.
I would like to ask for your help in making the content of JavaRanch a little easier to read for everybody that visits here by not using such abbreviations.
