How to open a file without the saving option

P: 375

I have saved a file name in sqlserver datatype Binary.
When I open the file from it opens but it asks for an option Save as, I click that and then it opens too

Once I do this I will set the flag as 1 as somebody has opened it.
Next time when somebody opens it, it should not ask for Save option at all, it should directly Open, Kindly let me know how to do that

I use this code to open it

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. string fil = sr.GetString(0);
  2. byte[] nwe = new byte[sr.GetBytes(1, 0, null, 0, int.MaxValue)];
  3. sr.GetBytes(1, 0, nwe, 0, nwe.Length);
  4. string pat = Server.MapPath("files/");
  5. File.WriteAllBytes(pat + fil, nwe);
  6. pdf_frame.Visible = true;
  7. pdf_frame.Attributes.Add("src", "files/"+sr.GetString(0));

What ?
You are having people download a file from your web application and you want them to not have to chose to save it?
The only control you have over that is if you set the content-disposition header or not. Otherwise it's entirely in the client's software's hands.
