Hi,

The following code displays a download link in a datagridView control and it's working. How can modify the code to remove the hyperlink if no file is available?

 protected void grdProjects_RowCommand (object sender, GridViewCommandEventArgs e)
   {
       string name = e.CommandArgument.ToString ();
       string fullFilePath = Server.MapPath (name);
          System.IO.FileInfo fileInfo = new System.IO.FileInfo (fullFilePath);
          this.Response.Clear ();
          this.Response.AddHeader ("Content-Disposition", "attachment; filename=" + fileInfo.Name);
          this.Response.AddHeader ("Content-Length", fileInfo.Length.ToString ());
          this.Response.ContentType = "application/octet-stream";
          //this.Response.TransmitFile(fileInfo.FullName);
          this.Response.BinaryWrite (File.ReadAllBytes (fileInfo.FullName));
          this.Response.End ();
   }

html
       <Columns>
          <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Misc-Doc">
              <ItemTemplate>
                  <asp:LinkButton ID="btnItemName6" runat="server" Text='View' CommandArgument='<%# Eval("md") %>'
                     Font-Underline="false" ForeColor="black" CssClass="linkbutton" CommandName="OpenFile" />
              </ItemTemplate>
          </asp:TemplateField>

Please help.

Try this:

       string name = e.CommandArgument.ToString ();
       string fullFilePath = Server.MapPath (name);
        if(System.IO.File.Exists(fullFilePath)) {
              System.IO.FileInfo fileInfo = new System.IO.FileInfo (fullFilePath);
              this.Response.Clear ();
              this.Response.AddHeader ("Content-Disposition", "attachment; filename=" + fileInfo.Name);
              this.Response.AddHeader ("Content-Length", fileInfo.Length.ToString ());
              this.Response.ContentType = "application/octet-stream";
              //this.Response.TransmitFile(fileInfo.FullName);
              this.Response.BinaryWrite (File.ReadAllBytes (fileInfo.FullName));
              this.Response.End ();
        }

Hope that helps.

Hi,

Try adding the visible property for the link button like this:

Visible='<%# Eval("<file_Filed_from_DB>").ToString() != "" %>' if you return an empty string from the query when there is no file present to download.


Regards,
Mishu

code to remove the hyperlink if no file is available

grdProjects_RowCommand


before assigning the filelocation

check the file exist in the current location  ,if exits assign hyperlink else
use FINDCONTROL and make that hyperlink control readyonly or visible as none

If File.Exists("C:\MyDocs\MyFile.txt") = False Then
   MsgBox("Field does not exist!", MsgBoxStyle.Critical, "File Not Found")
   Application.Exit()
End If
