    In a grid am having an image button ; on click o to open a file that is there in database.

    My code is like this

    protected void imgBtnPersonalView_Click(object sender, ImageClickEventArgs e)
                ImageButton imgBtnPersonalView = (ImageButton)sender;
    GridDataItem dataItem = (GridDataItem)imgBtnPersonalView.NamingContainer;

    string documentId = dataItem["Document_Id"].Text;
    DataTable dt = objNewJoineeFormBL.GetDocumentUploadByDocumentId(documentId);
    byte[] objData = (byte[]) dt.Rows[0]["Data"];
    string strFileName = dt.Rows[0]["Document_Name"].ToString();
    string fileExtension = dt.Rows[0]["File_Format"].ToString();

    Response.Buffer = true;
    Response.Charset = "";
    Response.ContentType = fileExtension;
    Response.AppendHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment; filename=" + strFileName);

    I can see the data while debugging..
    But when it comes to the last line, it shows an error like
    0xc00ce514 - JavaScript runtime error: Could not complete the operation due to error c00ce514
    i am attaching screen shot of it.
    What i need is, a file window to open/ save button.
    i got files in picture format, doc and pdf.

    Thanks in advance

    Hi Jayasankar,

    It seems that the application uses AJAX. If that is the case you should force the imgBtnPersonalView button to perform a postback instead of an AJAX request. For that purpose you can cancel the request by subscribing to the InitializeRequest event.

                function initRequest(sender, args) {
                    if (args.get_postBackElement().id.indexOf("imgBtnPersonalView") != -1) {
                        args.set_cancel(true);  //stop async request
                        sender._form["__EVENTTARGET"].value = args.get_postBackElement().id.replace(/\_/g, "$");
                        sender._form["__EVENTARGUMENT"].value = "";

    More information about this approach can be found here.
