I was looking to solve this problem long time ago.My problem is:
I have a link on jsp page (witch belong to a website ) when I click the link it suppose to give me the open/save/cancel dialog box to choose to open or save the specified file but it didn`t this all the times, i explain more, on an other page i have a submit to upload files on a temporary foledr on the server (.doc, .pdf, .rtf)
when i have the pdf or rtf file it works correctly but with doc files it doesn`t display dialog box it open the fiel as html page so the doc file isn`t correct it is mixed with ascii caracters.
but the real problem is only with IE not with other browsers (firefox, netscap, opera..)
I tryied a lot of thing but still not working, i verify the IE configuration also.
I add mimetype, content type .... :confused:
my link is like this:
<a href="<%=request.getContextPath()%>/tmp/<%=row.get("filename")%>?id=<%=row.get("employee_id")%>" class="gray"> click here </a>
any ideas please.
thanks in advance
