TransmitFile - change the file's name in dialog box

I am using this - code to transmit the file to the browser, so that the Save File dialog box will appear -
                        response.ContentType = myHttpWebResponse.ContentType;
                        response.AddHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment; filename=" + CurrentMainFileNamePart + ";");

Now in the Save-As dialog box, I donot want my file- CurrentMainFileNamePart's actual filename to be displayed, i want it to be something else - like mydrawing.jpg

how to do that

thanks a lot

Customise the name here: response.AddHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment; filename=" + CurrentMainFileNamePart + ";");
