Here is the Jquery request sent to MyAction class

$.ajax({
                  type: "POST",
                  url: "MyAction",
                  data:  $('form').serialize(),
                  cache: false,
                  dataType: "html",
                  success: function(result){
                  
                   // what to write here so that I can get doc download prompt
               
                }
 });
 
 


Struts MyAction  retruns "result.jsp"
      
      
result.jsp
------------
 <%
response.setContentType("application/doc");
response.setHeader("Content-disposition","attachment; filename=abc.doc;");
// blah
// blah
%>

You need to submit your request to an iframe that would popup the download prompt.

This requires response header's to be pushed out which shows the download prompt.

I'm doing a JQuery ajax form submit.  Instead of getting a html response , I'm trying to put a download prompt .

Please see the question again . What changes I need to do so that Ajax form submit can pop up a download prompt ?

>>>>>>success: function(result){
                 
here u can call the jsp like form submit
document.formName.action="MyAction.html?fetch="+test;
  document.formName.submit();              
                }
so this will go to ur actoion calss there you can redirected to another JSp .

>>here u can call the jsp like form submit

success: function(result)--->This is the result section returned by the action ..why do we call action here ?


Do you mean I need to call the Action here again ? Also I'm doing a JQuery AJAX post submit.

Please see the code again .

I have removed Ajax code and put it other way...I'm using the same result.jsp as my return page when action gets called.

$('#exporttoword').click(function() {
			
			alert("exporttoword");
			document.forms[0].buttonName.value="exporttoword";
			document.forms[0].hdncreatePage.value="3";
		
	        
			var ifi=0;
			var container = document.getElementById('mainAction');
			alert('container='+container);
			container.innerHTML+='<iframe id="ifi'+ ifi +'" height="55" frameborder="1" width="55" name="ifi'+ifi+'"></iframe>';
			document.forms[0].target = 'ifi' + ifi ;
			
			document.forms[0].action="MyAction";
			document.forms[0].submit();


		});



		<input type="button" id="exporttoword" class="submit_btn_base" value="Export to Word"> 

Open in new window



This works ...but issue is , when I click button second time , the click function is not called and so I dont get download prompt on next click.  Can we find a workaround for this ?
