    How to redirect to the same page ?

    gokul1242 Level 1

      i am using the following code to open a file on a cfm page ie.,when user clicking on a hyperlink it opens the cfm page and displays the pop up to save the file 


      <cfif isdefined("url.isemailPopUP") and trim(url.isemailPopUP) eq "Y">

      <cfif isdefined("url.fileName")>

      <cfif #find(url.fileName,#fileWithThePath#,1)#>

      <cfheader name="Content-Disposition" value="attachment; filename=#url.fileName#">

      <cfcontent type="text/plain" file="#fileWithThePath#"> 







      but after the file has been downloaded .it does not displays the contents of the page or  redirects to the same page ....


      i have used cflocation. but it does not help....

          You can't. Downloaded files do not do html or script processing, they only download the file. In some cases you can use the "target" parameter to spawn a child window when the user clicks the link for the download, but depending on the browser this will work perfectly or come across as bulky because a stray empty window will be left behind.
