How-to Download Images with a Save As Dialog in ASP.NET

In my last post, I discussed how to create a file download tracking page in ASP.NET.  Today we'll look at extending the functionality of this page to allow images to be downloaded with a "Save As" dialog.  

Normally, when you link to an file in the browser, the content type is determined based upon the extension.  Since we are dealing with an image here, the browser determines that it knows how to properly render the file and does so.  In this case, we want to bypass the default functionality of the browser and download the image instead of rendering it.

Creating a File Download Tracking Page in ASP.NET

Flyout Ribbon using jQuery and CSS3

jquery flyout ribbon css3

Recently, I created a Flyout Ribbon using jQuery and CSS3 that I would like to share with you today.  My original idea for this came from the desire have a web administration panel for every page on my site, so i could edit content, change menu's, etc directly on the page I was working on.  I really wanted something unobtrusive to the flow of my page and something with a bit of sex appeal, so naturally I turned to jQuery and CSS3.  I also wanted something that I show and hide easily.  Hence, the jQuery Flyout Ribbon plugin!  Please visit the Flyout Ribbon support page for future updates, documentation, changelogs etc.

   

Below I will show you how to use this plugin on your own site.
