Can you assign a filename to an image processed by a Handler? RRS feed

    When I retrieve an image from a database using a Handler, if I try to save the file the filename is simply the name of the Handler.  Since I am also pulling down the name of the image, is there a way to set the image name to that when someone tries to "Save As..."?

    You can use URL rewriting http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archive/2007/02/26/tip-trick-url-rewriting-with-asp-net.aspx

    What you can do is make it so that all requests to this


    redirects to this


    Then when you get it from the database and show it the address used to access it will be the name of the file.

    Note: you will need to map the jpg extension or a wildcard to asp.net.

    I hope that helps,
