View binary image with Safari in IPad/IPhone RRS feed

  • User-455010333 posted

    Hi All,

    Not sure if this issue should be posed here, but i try anyway:

    I have a webpage with a button, button click the webpage will write an image (in binary) to the response object, resulting the user can open or save an image.

    Code:

                response.ClearHeaders();
                response.ClearContent();

                response.AddHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment; filename=abc.jpg");
                response.AddHeader("Content-Length", binaryImageFile.Length.ToString());

                response.BinaryWrite(binaryImageFile);
                response.Flush();
                response.Close();


    Everything is fine in IE in Windows, but in Safari in IPad/IPhone, it is viewed in a seperate browser tab, with the binary image file written as a very long string.

    In Windows, i know you have to select a program to use to open a new file type for the first time, is this the case in IPad? that i need to select a program?


    Any ideas? Many Thanks.
