    Picnik.com app saving to local disk from Flex?

    blaineboman
      I need my Flex app to generate a PDF (I'm using AlivePDF for this) and then allow the user to save it. I know that Flex cannot save directly to the disk so I've written a simple JSP to send the data I POST back to the browser which opens the browser's open/save dialog. This mostly works, but it requires the browser to open a new window and really disrupts the experience of the Flex app.

      Any ideas how the guys at picnik.com are doing their saving? It's so seamless, it looks like they are popping up a FileReference to save the file. I can't do this with my method because FileReference.download doesn't allow my to pass a ByteArray in the POST request.
