this works for an file on the server:

String FileName = "FileName.txt";
String FilePath = "C:/...."; //Replace this
System.Web.HttpResponse response = System.Web.HttpContext.Current.Response;
response.ContentType = "text/plain";
response.AddHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment; filename=" + FileName + ";");

what i want is to use the function i mention above that returns an bitmap, convert to file and downloaded. this function downloads an file on the server using path, but i don't have that, i have the function that returns an bitmap.

i think i was not clear about what's the question, so let me try to explain, i have an webpage that on codebehind i have this function:

  Private Function CreateImg(ByVal sImage As String,) As System.Drawing.Bitmap

but it returns system.drawing.bitmap. what i want is to convert this into a file and download it to the user when the user clicks on a button, lets say:

'get the bitmap
download the image created to the user in jpg format
