Filestream link open/save promptby ksublondie (Friar)
|on Oct 31, 2013 at 15:03 UTC||Need Help??|
ksublondie has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I have a web interface that uses CGI.pm, Template.pm & sql2012 filestream to access multiple documents, mostly pdfs. When I initially set this up, I stored the docs on the server, but my last update uses sql to manage the new files (the existing files are still on the server). I'm using the following in the html template file:
And getDBFile is the following:
Everything works great, except if I'm getting the doc from the db using getDBFile, the browser prompts to open or save. If the link target is stored on the server, it doesn't prompt and just automatically opens the file in a new window.
No biggie, you say? Well, apparently not to my end users. Unfortunately, this is life & death to have an extra click. And it looks like the "remember this action" functionality was taken away in IE and doesn't work properly in FF without a plugin.
Is it possible to have them both not prompt?
