Save Image

Is there a way I can have a button on a ASP.NET form that when clicked will
allow the user to save the image to a file on the client side? I know that
the user can simply rclick the image and select Save Target as..., but the
button might be a more intuitive way.

You could make the button do a response.redirect("insert path to image
here")

That just brings up another instance of the image in the window. It does not
prompt the user to save it. Does anyone know how I might do this or am I
stuck with the standard method of having the user rclick the image and
select from the menu?

Hi David,
Thanks for posting in the community! My name is Steven, and I'll be
assisting you on this issue.
From your description, you'd like to let the user manually click a button
to download a certain image file. Just like they use the "save as" menu in
the IE's content menu ,yes?
If there is anything I misunderstood, please feel free to let me know.

As for this problem, I think we can implement this by setting the page's
Response object's "ContentType" and Header member. First we set the
Response.ContentType as "Image/GIF" or "Image/JPEG" to specify the response
stream as a image. Then, add a Header item into the response using the
Response.AddHeader method to streaming the image as an attachment to the
browser , then in the client the browser will popup a dialog to let the
user choose open or save the certain file. For example:

Response.ContentType = "Image/GIF";
Response.AddHeader( "Content-Disposition",
"attachment;filename=\"Microsoft.gif\"" );
Response.WriteFile("Microsoft.gif"); // write the file to the response
stream

Also, here is an sample page, you may have a try on it:
-----------------------aspx page-----------------------------------------
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" >
<HTML>
<HEAD>
<title>Download</title>
<meta name="GENERATOR" Content="Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 7.1">
<meta name="CODE_LANGUAGE" Content="C#">
<meta name="vs_defaultClientScript" content="JavaScript">

<body>
<form id="Form1" method="post" runat="server">

download the image!"></asp:Label></FONT></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>
<asp:Button id="btnDownload" runat="server"
Text="Download"></asp:Button></td>
</tr>
</table>
</form>
</body>
</HTML>
-----------------------code behind page class----------------------

public class Download : System.Web.UI.Page
{
protected System.Web.UI.WebControls.Button btnDownload;
protected System.Web.UI.WebControls.Label lblMessage;

private void Page_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
// Put user code to initialize the page here
}

#region Web Form Designer generated code
override protected void OnInit(EventArgs e)
{
//
// CODEGEN: This call is required by the ASP.NET Web Form Designer.
//
InitializeComponent();
base.OnInit(e);
}

/// <summary>
/// Required method for Designer support - do not modify
/// the contents of this method with the code editor.
/// </summary>
private void InitializeComponent()
{
this.btnDownload.Click += new
System.EventHandler(this.btnDownload_Click);
this.Load += new System.EventHandler(this.Page_Load);

}
#endregion

private void btnDownload_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
Response.ClearHeaders();
Response.ClearContent();
Response.Clear();
Response.ContentType = "Image/GIF";

Response.AddHeader("Content-Disposition","attachment;filename=\"MS.gif\"");
Response.WriteFile(Server.MapPath("MS.gif"));
Response.End();
}
}
