Hi,

I want to download file(pdf) using save dialog when user clicks a link from Html Page.

There is html page where i used anchor tag to open a PopUp window(aspx form) where user will enter his details

and submit the details which will save in database.After submitting the details save dialog window will open where 

user can save the file on his local m/c.

I don't understand your code snippet. I manage to make the pdf open in a new window but not sure what you mention above.

Overall, it works. Thanks for sharing.

I attached an image on how it looks:
