Download a file from a web server (C#, VB and ASP.NET) | Free code
Here you can download free code (C# and VB) to let you download a file from a web server and there are no restrictions on the file type or the file extension of files to be downloaded.
On a website that will provide the ability for users to download files must those files that can be downloaded be presented to the user with links or buttons, and then should the user when he clicked to download a file get a dialog where he can choose if he wants to open, save, or cancel.
In this template with free code (C# and VB) to download a file from a web server, is there a form with a button to show all files in a folder on your web server. When the user clicks the button will code be executed that loops through all the files in a folder and then put the filename of the files in link buttons in a Repeater control. When a user clicks on a link button for a file to dowlnload, we will make sure to catch the file name through a "CommandArgument" and then offer the user a choice to download the file using a dialog box. There are no restrictions on which types of files that can be downloaded using this code, all file extensions are approved for download.
Remember that you in your web hosting account must have made a setting for the correct version of "ASP.NET" on your website (the version listed in the "Web.config" file). We are using Visual Web Developer 2005 (2010) Express Edition for web programming.
