I would like to add functionality to export certain custom data from an ajaxified page.  On the user clicking a button, the logic would normally look something like:

Response.Clear()
Response.ContentType =
"application/vnd.ms-excel"
Response.AddHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment; filename="Export.xls")
....
Response.Flush()
Response.Close()

I would like to implement the same functionality with RadAjaxManager, and have Excel open in a new window leaving the original window open and unchanged.  I know I cannot use the Response object in this way with RadAjax.  Is there an alternative to doing this without posting back?

Hello Andrew Short,

I'm afraid that there is not way to achieve such functionality due to the nature of XHttpRequest object.
