    Hi Bakhtawar Ashiq,

    > i want to get docuid from datalist

    Please try to get the NamingContainer of the linkbutton then find the docid control and get the text.

      Dim label As Label = sender.NamingContainer.FindControl("docid")
      Dim itemIndex As Integer = label.Text

    > i hard code id and try to download file then file is download but file name change

    Because you have set the file name to:

    DocumentName = Now.Day & Now.Month & Now.Year * Now.Hour & Now.Minute & Now.Millisecond & DocExtension

    If you want the file name same as the format you provide, you could set the name to:

    DocumentName = itemIndex & " " & sender.Text & DocExtension

    Here is the complete code:

    Protected Sub DownloadFile(sender As Object, e As EventArgs)
            Dim strKeyName() As String = {"docid "}
            Dim label As Label = sender.NamingContainer.FindControl("docid")
            Dim itemIndex As Integer = label.Text
            Dim objKeyVal() As Object = {itemIndex}
            Dim DocExtension As String = ""
            Dim DocumentName As String = ""
            structDb = objDataSet.ExecSP("tbl", "getdoc", strKeyName, objKeyVal)
            If structDb.intCode = 0 Then
                Dim count As Integer = dl_Options.Items.Count
                For i As Integer = 0 To count - 1
                    Dim binary() As Byte = TryCast(structDb.dstResult.Tables(0).Rows(i).Item("document"), Byte())
                    Dim ms As MemoryStream = New MemoryStream(binary)
                    DocExtension = structDb.dstResult.Tables(0).Rows(i).Item("DocExtension")
                    DocumentName = itemIndex & " " & sender.Text & DocExtension
                    Response.Buffer = True
                    Response.Charset = ""
                    Response.ContentType = ContentType
                    Response.AppendHeader("Content-Disposition", Convert.ToString("attachment;filename=") & DocumentName)
            End If
        End Sub

    Best Regards
