In the first article on which Webclient is used

when downloading it didn't ask for the location at runtime where you want to save the file.

Is that possible

Use DownloadFile()

There are two ways of downloading a file from a web site using WebClient, depending on whether we want to save the file, or process the contents of the directly within your application. If we simply want to save the file then we should call the DownloadFile() method takes two parameters, The URL from where we want to retrieve the file, and the file name ( or path) that we want to save the file to.

Hi

I have used the following code from the website

WebClient Client = new WebClient();
Client.DownloadFile("http://www.csharpfriends.com/Members/index.aspx", " index.aspx");

But this code will directly download the file

I'm confused.  You want to download a file, but WebClient.DownloadFile() (which downloads it) doesn't prompt you.

If you want a prompt, use the System.Windows.Forms.MessageBox class
