Get back to web form from a Response.ContentType = "application/pdf"


My last page of my ecommerce site, called Confirmation.aspx, has one button which allows user to print an order confirmation. I am exporting a report as a pdf file. My code brings up the adobe acrobat into the browser. The user prints out the order confirmation. How do I get back to the web page , Confirmation.aspx? When I hit the Back button on the browser, it goes back to far. Is there a way to call adobe acrobat separate from the browser?
Below is my subroutine.
Public Function ReportPDF(ByVal myreport As CrystalReport1)
Dim myExportOptions As ExportOptions
Dim myDiskFileDestinationOptions As New DiskFileDestinationOptions()
Dim myExportFile As String
myExportFile = "C:\Temp " & Session.SessionID.ToString & ".pdf"
myDiskFileDestinationOptions.DiskFileName = myExportFile
myExportOptions = myreport.ExportOptions
With myExportOptions
.DestinationOptions = myDiskFileDestinationOptions
.ExportDestinationType = ExportDestinationType.DiskFile
.ExportFormatType = .ExportFormatType.PortableDocFormat
End With
Response.ContentType = "application/pdf"
End Function

It all depends on the client for that.

If they open pdf by default in the browser or not.
I believe you could force the download box to come op though, but if they click Open on that it still opens in the browser I thought?
Is this a solution:
Popup a new window, open the pdf in there, when the user has printed it, he just closes that window.

I guess you are talking about JavaScript which I do not know well. Should I convert the code I have in my sub routine to javaScript. The code should be very close to what I have in this sub routine. Can you give me an example based on my subroutine from first posting.

Well, my idea would to create a page called

Wich only includes your sub to send your pdf to the client (like you have now)
and then on your original site you have a link or a button with to open your new aspx page in a new window.

Multiple "Forms" in a Web Form.
Hi, this query relates to ASP.NET 2.0. I use C# but answers in C# or VB.Net is fine. I have a form to capture a person's details. The form is the usual forename, surname, etc. and the Person is held in a Person Class. What I want to be able to do is to move the form creation into a Class in a separate Class in App_Code. This will enable a button to be placed on the web form to "Add Another Person" using the class. This would create a new Person object and write a new form into the page for the second person to fill in their details. Naturally, this could continue to n Pe...

How to preserve the value of a form field when the user press a "BACK" button on my web page?
Hi all,  I have 3 forms with some text fields and checkboxes. I move from Form1 to Form2, and then to Form3. I use session variables to pass values between forms. Now the problem is, when I am in Form3, when the user clicks a "BACK" button on Form3, he should be taken to Form2. At this stage, the data he entered on Form2 should be there as it was! For this, should I load back the values of each field from the session variables? Or is there any automated method to do this (may be from the viewstate etc.)? Can anyone help me? Thanking you in advance, Tomy Viewstate works onl...

A "Web Application Project" for web-services ?
I was wondering if there is something analogous to the "Web Application Project" VS add-in for Web-services. By analogous I mean: 1. All the source files in a Web-services project is compiled into a single assembly, perhaps with the exceptions of the .asmx file 2. Property pages for the project in VS display all the tabs that are available in other kinds of projects - i.e., for example, ability to specify pre and post build events, the XML documentation file etc. I really appreciate any help. Cheers, Adrigo Yes, the current release supports creating an "ASP.Net Web Service Applica...

Why don't I see the "use master page" check box when I add a new web form to my web app?
From what I've read I should see this check box whenever I add a new web form but I don't.  Should I add something else instead of a web form or is there a flaw in my web apps install? Woot! I found the answer!  There is an item in the add new item dialog box called web content form! If you use this instead of the web form then all is good and warm fuzzy!...
