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 ?

Not sure which OpenStack Certification to get?

So you’ve realized you might want to get certified in OpenStack, but you’re not sure what the benefits might be or even which one you should take. You know there are several certification courses you can choose from, but how do you know which one is right for you?

response.setHeader("Content-disposition","attachment; filename=abc.doc;");

>>>>>>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 ?
