Hi,
Iam using the Response object to download files. In the application, the user can select multiple files for download. But the code I wrote works fine only for a single download. i.e It downloads only the first selected file. Can somebody tell me how to download multiple files in one shot??
This is the code i wrote for downloading files:

        Response.Clear()
        Response.Buffer = True
        Response.ContentType = "application/octet-stream; name=" & Filename
        Response.AddHeader("content-transfer-encoding", "binary")
        Response.AddHeader("content-disposition", "attachment;filename=" & Filename & "")
        Response.ContentEncoding = System.Text.Encoding.GetEncoding(1251)

Thanks in advance

I don't think you can. What you might be able to do is to open a page that invokes a JavaScript that opens up a window per download each with the URL that is required to start the download.
