i am trying to have a download on my page. I have implemented the code below but code execution stops after the download message pops up, even if i press save or cancel, nothing happens after that.
Response.AddHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment; filename=" + lFile.Name);
Response.ContentType = "application/octet-stream";
I have tried it a few times without Response.Clear() and Response.End() but it didn't make any difference to take these off. Is there anyway I can achieve this without having to using an IFrame?
Any suggestions will be very much appreciated.

The one I have currently downloads fine. It just stops code execution after the download.

Any suggestions on this one please? I don't understand why the page execution doesn't continue after the download. There is only a label that's assigned some text to its Text property before the download has been initiated but the text never shows up because
the download stops that.
It looks like no matter where in the code I add the custom HTTP headers for downloading the file, the download will start before the Label's text shows on the screen. They are both in the same

Not very sure
have tried using after Transmit file?

i have done that. I don't think that's the problem, it seems like the response will end anyway after the download dialogue pops up so anything that still hasn't been written to the screen is halted.
Any one else with suggestions to this please?
