Show Save As Dialog Box Popup On Clicking Anchor Tag
Feb 18, 2011
What I'm trying to do is have a 'Save As' dialog box pop up when I click an anchor tag. What's hidden in the anchor tag is base64 information, so my anchors look like this:
<a href=# src='data:image;base64, (base64 string here)' ></a>
So when I click on this, it gives me the option of downloading my base64 info just fine, but the problem is, the name of it looks to be just the entire base64 string. I was wondering if there was a way I could set this name? I can get the file name, so I'd love to just put '....jpg' as the name that the user downloads.
The reason I'm asking is because when I download the file, it comes out as (random characters).bin.part, and if I know the download is a pdf, I try opening it with a pdf viewer, but get yelled at by the MIME type... however, if I simply change '.bin.part' to '.pdf', I can open the file just fine, so I'd love for an automatic naming system, but not sure how to implement that. I've tried the document.execCommand('saveAs', '1', '<filename here>'), but I think this is for an actual file that you serve from the server... I don't have the actual file, just the base64.

I did a search of the forums, and this was the only thing I could come up that seems similar: [URL]. The last post in this thread tells me what I already know from my other research today - this function doesn't work in FF, Safari, etc.
I have a gridview in a form that contains a Save ImageButton. I would like to create a Client-side CustomValidator that checks whether the grid is empty or not. If it is empty then I would like to throw an error message to the user. This is my code. In the "Save_btn_Click" event, I check if the page is Valid:
I am currently having a problem with a couple anchor tags that I have on a jQuery modal popup (using jQuery-ui-1.7.2.custom.js for the modal popup).Both of them will work correctly when I use jQuery v1.3.2 in any browser but they will not work anymore when I upgrade to v1.4.1 or v1.4.2 in IE 8. Chrome and FireFox will continue to work like they did in the previous versions.
One thing l would like to point out is one of the tags is a select all button which uses .live() so I can select all the checkboxes on the modal popup. The reason I point this out is because other posts like live-method-for-change-event-broken-in-jquery-1-4-2-for-ie-worked-in-1-4-1 also had problems with IE 8 and .live(). My problem and theirs might be related.
I am working with a activeX widget that has a method that produces an image which is saved to a users local machine. All the method requires is the path on the local machine. I need to obtain this path (hopefully utilizing a "save as" file dialog) and store its value to a variable so I can pass it to the method. It does work with an input type="file" but they are branded for file uploads an dit is a little misleading and confusing for the user.
var path = $("#saveAsDialog").val(); activeXObj.saveScreenshot(path);
Can I make a list of hyperlinks that users can customize and save as a cookie by clicking a button and automatically retrieve the cookie so it remembers their list next time? This is kind of what I want to do:
I am using jQuery (wdCalendar) Scheduler Calendar in my Website. I want to show Popup moduler of Add/Edit Event Form at the right top position of the window. But There is no functionality to change position of popupdialog.
What I want to do is, when someone clicks a link the image pops up on screen in its own nice window smack down in the middle of the screen over top of the website. I want it to look neat tho, best example I can find is @ curse.com. [URL]. If you click that link and scroll down to the screen shot section and click on one of the images you can see how nice and professional it looks. How can I accomplish this?
