No postback after savefile dialog


My Application allows user to download the file to his local machine, once it is saved the page doesn't refresh itself or continue doing what it should, it just sits there!

Why is that?

Cant i refresh the page once download is done.....Or do a poskback?

Thanks in advance...

Hi Amit,
------------------------Either use this code------------------------------------------------------------
Add following code in child form button code:
Response.Write("<script>window.opener.location='ParentForm.aspx'; window.close();</script>");

ParentForm.aspx is the parent form that call the child form. This code will refresh the parent page.
---------------------------- OR the below one ---------------------------------------------------
If ur r using anchor tag <a> then make it server object like :-
In html window:-
<a runat=server id="lnkSaveFile" class="link" href="path_of_File">Download File</a>

Also, In codebehind file (.cs) add following line in page load event:-
or u can use "window.opener.location" incase "document.location.href"
