Hello to all...

i have written a code for just viewing a binary format file stored in a database when view button is clicked. It is working properly..giving the desired result..when server is running.

Later i wanted to modify the code..to ..not only to view the image or file..etc. but give an option to save the file to the local system.But it is not happening...But, to my amazing..after stopping the server(tomcat)...

Opened the source code file in edit plus..then pressed ctrl+B(to see in browser view) then it is giving a option to save or open the file.After saying it to save it is saving the source file..how it is happened i dont know..but i want to know how and why it happend...by knowing the reason ..i can use the same concept..for saving the file..

Here i am placing the code..please help me out..please.




Thanks to all..

In the Content-Disposition header, you can suggest that the browser either show the content 'inline' or have it sent as an 'attachment'.
The latter will cause the save/open dialog to be opened up with most browsers.
