When I produce an HTML pages using CGI application, and the user want to save this document, the default file name will be the name of Executable CGI, so how can I assign a name to that page?

Also that problem appear when I download a file using Response.ContentStream, the default name of downloaded file is the name of my CGI.

Is there any way to change that default name?

Add something like this in the content:

<head>
<title>The title</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
</head>

Hi Motaz,

  Actually default name is the string after last slash '/'.
  You can set path after the CGI script name like:
  'http://.../ScriptName.exe/motaz'
  In this case the default save name will be 'motaz.html'.

  This path info is used for different web action items in CGI script. If you use default action only, you can use the described way above.

Regards, Geo

cakk, it didn't work, it displays random letters instead of the name I was suggested, but I think the solution is around that CustomHeader!
