[SOLVED] downloadFile with "save as"

Issue

I need to write a process to download an html file locally in my vb.net web app. I am currently using webClient.DownloadFile :

Dim myWebClient As New System.Net.WebClient
myWebClient.DownloadFile("http://archive.ncsa.illinois.edu/primer.html", _
                        "C:\test.html")

Is there a built-in way to do this with a “save as” window instead, so that the user can select the location they would like the file to be saved to? Or would I need to write my own?

Solution

You can use

Response.AddHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment;filename=testfile_file.html");
Response.Write or Response.WriteFile
