DocumentCompleted event occurs when the WebBrowser control finishes loading a document. The Timer control is useful if the session is not initialized for some reason or if the site changes page and the program tries to connect to pages that no longer exist. The alternative is to use the HttWebRequest object to download the file, but being a protected site, the problem is to pass the authentication status of the WebBrowser control to access the HttWebRequest object then recreate the request, and send all the values of the post. In reality, that's not a safe bet. You mean to interact with a page aspx like. Member 12177025 21-Mar-17 9:26 21-Mar-17 9:26 Hi Erika, Thank you for sharing this project.Next
So you should create the folder first. In theory, you can download data without worrying about it being executed as code. For this reason it is important to read the page twice, first time for reading and saving the value of these particular input fields, and second time to send them back to the server with the other value in this example, the name typed. Presumably you're trying to make your users happy. When you download a file in selenium webdriver automation testing script, you can not access the popup dialog. I have included an authentication page. The catch here is I do not know the url of the file that has to be downloaded.
Why would you want to have this capability? Not that clandestine downloads of data are innocuous either. I want to automate this process which means file gets saved automatically to the path I want. This interaction becomes problematic when you have to write a program that automates the process of downloading files from a site for example, a scheduled task. To illustrate this process I have created a web application that generates a protected site. Abhinav Kumar Singh, abhinavsingh993 Software Engineer, Lucknow, India. Please see the java code comments for detail explanation. I have exactly same project with you.Next
Although you can use some method to pass it in some web broswer, but you still can not pass it with all web browsers. Second scenario is if a page required date to be filled then button clicked can that also be automated. I open a webpage using webbrowser control then I invoke a script. Using the code In my application I use WebBrowser control and Timer control. In this way it is possible to bypass the problem of the dialog box, always keeping the control within the application. After that a save file dialog appears. So I'm pretty sure we're addressing the question as it was originally asked.Next
Otherwise I will then have to use sendkeys to manage the dialog box which may not be easy. Chances are they have and don't get it. If it's called prior to the Save File dialog, then you can cancel the download, and launch the download through the WebClient object. End End Sub What I have tried: Tried the above code. In a similar way, Event Validation ensures that events raised on the client originate from the controls rendered in the page and also this value is inserted in a hidden field. To navigate the site I used a WebBrowser control that allowed me to easily log in and keep the session, but when I tried to download the file, simulating the user's click, the program loses control on the file generated.Next
This happens because in the header of the file it is specified as Content-Disposition: attachment. Because our example is run on windows, so i just download windows version. That works ok with web browser but the save process has to be done manually. My purpose is to automate this process by passing the file download dialog and saving the file directly to a local drive. When this occurs the new document is loaded, which means you can access it.Next
Let's work to help developers, not make them feel stupid.

Provide an answer or move on to the next question. It will include all the dependency dll files. I can't think of any non-suspicious reason.Next
Open sLocalPath + sFileName, FileMode. It is getting passed by the website. Just set the WebClient credentials and call its DownloadFile method. In another scenario the date has to be entered then on button click a file download is initiated which I doubt can be done without any manual intervention. Within this site I have developed a page that requires a user name and a button that generates an on-the-fly file which includes the name typed in the text field. If the file exists in the web server you can use a WebClient object and simply download the file, but if the file is created on-the-fly, you have to simulate user navigation and user click. .

That way they have a choice, and you don't need to program anything - now that's a win-win situation! After this I have to manually click on save and then save the file to a specific path. If the session is lost or there are other problems, I close the program and write the error in the log file when the timer generates the event tick. Your webclass code works fine if the url passed generates a file for download. What you need to do is educate them that this is a browser setting - then they can configure their browsers to either show the dialog, or save the file automatically. The WebBrowser control allows developers to build Web browsing capability within Windows Forms applications.Next
