C# - Save A PDF That's Been Streamed To The Browser? stackoverflow.com

I'm streaming PDFs to the browser, and it works fine. The problem is when someone clicks the save button. On the same server, we have a "Live" and a "test" site. They are identical, and I've verified that all code is identical. However I'm seeing different dialog boxes when the user clicks "Save" Test site: - dialog box: "Save A Copy" - file name: "Document.pdf" - file type: Adobe PDF Live site: - dialog box: "Save As..." - file name: "Document.aspx" - file type: Adobe PDF To make things even more "fun" I've noticed this behavior ONLY with IE8. With Firefox or Chrome clicking save - regardless of which site (test or live) opens the "Save a Copy" dialog box which allows the users to save the file as a PDF instead of a .aspx file.

Using Text Files For Input www.xtremevbtalk.com

I know this is rather basic but can somebody please show me code for how to :1) Add [Open…] command button which pops up a File Open dialog from a Common Dialog Control (it will use the same one for Save and Open). When the user has chosen a file from the open dialog, it will clear the collection as it currently exists (Set the collection variable = Nothing) and refill it by reading line by line from the file and using the collection’s Add method.2) Add [Save…] command button which pops up a File Save dialog from a Common Dialog Control. When the user has given the file a name in the File Save dialog, it will write all of the coordinates to the file, one x,y per line. I.e.100,100300,400100,200

Save-as Dialog Freezes When Browsing To Desktop? www.sevenforums.com

I recently bought WD MyBookLive and I'm busy figuring out how to set it up. I'm confident that my problem has to do with the fact that I've mapped drives to the external backup drive.My problem is this: Whenever I use the Save-as dialog and I click the "Desktop" button so that I can save to the Desktop, the dialog freezes up for a while. Sometims, the dialog itself is not frozen (i.e. I can press Cancel to dismiss it) but the display where the icons from the Desktop are supposed to appear, remains blank. Sometimes, however, both the dialog and the program from which I called it freezes. If I wait long enough, the icons appear, and I can proceed with saving the file or navigating to subfolders on my desktop.This has only started today, after I started mapping drives. I don't think it has to do with WD's software because I had installed those yesterday and didn't notice this problem. Thing is, even if I disconnect all my mapped drives, the Save-as dialog problem remains. Rebooting has no effect. It is as if Windows is trying to access some resource before it will show me the desktop icons, and it takes a long while for Windows to realise that it can't access that resource (or perhaps it just takes long to access it).This does not happen to all Save-as dialogs -- only to the types of Save-as dialogs that are non-resizeable and that show the five shortcut icons on the left (Recent Places, Desktop, Libraries, Computer, Network). I can actually save a file to the Desktop immediately, but I can't see the files on the desktop (in the dialog) nor can I browse to other folders from there, until I wait a long while. the same applies to Open-file dialogs -- the ones that look similar to the misbehaving Save-as dialogs have the same problem. If I want to open a file using such a dialog I have to wait a minute or two before the list of files display, or I can manually type in the file name and press "Open", and it will open the file.i'm using Windows 7 HP 64-bit.

Has anyone ever found a way to save a file to the ADOBE PDF Writer printer to create a PDF file?I've been through the previous posts and looked at the SDK documents and tried some of the suggestions to no avail (maybe it's just me).All I want to do is to use VB to open a template document in Word, replace some values and then save the file to a PDF file.As every other post knows, the problem is passing a file name and location to the PDF Writer instead of having the 'Save As' dialog box appear.Any suggestions/examples?Thanks in advance.Alan

Use The Win32 Hooks To Allow To Add Extra Save Locations To The Save And Open Dialog Box? www.vbforums.com

Create New File In Windows www.excelforum.com

I am looking for the best way to create a new file in windows. I am just looking to create a save filename template. After I run a macro, a graph is created and printed to pdf. I want this macro to create a filename, so that when the save as dialog box opens, I just have to doubleclick the existing filename. Then I save the excel workbook as another. For example, after I run the macro, the pdf printer will open up a save as dialog to c: emp. I want to have this macro create two files there, one DaveGraph.PDF and one DaveExcel.xls. They really won't be files, just names. They can be 0kb files. I want it to be as efficient as possible. I know I could create a new workbook and save it there with the correct name, but isn't there an easier way?

Adding New Item To &"Look In&"/&"Save As&" Combo Box In Common Dialogs www.vbforums.com

I am trying to integrate a COTS document management software into Windows in order to provide integration for all Windows apps. To do this, my proposed design is to add a new item in the Look In/Save As dropdowns in the common File Open/Save dialog boxes. Typically, the items in the control are drives and folders, however my item will be a link to a DLL control that will process the open/save request through the DM system via API tools.I have seen this done with another DM package years ago (WinNT) so I know it can happen, but not sure where to begin. I'm not looking to modify the actual common dialogs, rather I need to know where and how the Save/Open dropdown control gets the items.Any insight or code will be rewarded handsomely!

"Concept Problem" With Common Dialog ShowSave www.xtremevbtalk.com

VB 6 Enterprise, OS=Widows ProProblem Area: Common Dialog Control using the Save WindowI thought on a "ShowSave", the CommonDialog.Filename specifies the path and name of the file to be saved. Looking at the code below, I commented the "DialogControl.FileName" statement, ran this routine and chose the "ALL File" filter. The routine would not save any file.Using a CommonDialog ShowSave, how and where do you specify the file that is to be saved? I know, in the "Save In" box is where you want the file to be saved to.If you want to run this code, all you need is a form with a command button on it and a Common Dialog Control.CommonDialog Control Name = DialogControl Code:Private Sub Command1_Click()Dim CancelMe As BooleanCancelMe = False ' Set CancelError is True DialogControl.CancelError = True On Error GoTo ErrHandler ' Set flags DialogControl.Flags = cdlOFNHideReadOnly Or cdlOFNOverwritePrompt ' Set filters DialogControl.Filter = "All Files (*.*)|*.*|mdb Files" & _ " (*.mdb)|*.mdb" ' Specify default filter DialogControl.FilterIndex = 2 ' Display the Save dialog box 'DialogControl.FileName = "c:orion racking racking.mdb" 'file TO BE copied DialogControl.ShowSave Exit Sub ErrHandler: If Err.Number = 32755 Then CancelMe = True Exit SubEnd Sub

Save Dialog Box To Select Path Only? www.vbforums.com

I need to use the Save common dialog box to let the user select the path where to place a file, but I do not want the user to change the filename itself. The reason I use this common dialog is because it has all the widgets to create a path where to place the file. However, the box, as it is, allows the user to modify the name of the file.How can I prevent that?
