    Hello,

    I am developing an app that has a reporting function
    which displays the non-PDF reports. One of the users
    wishes to have the reports saved to his machine as PDFs.

    The app can convert the reports, and save to the server
    with no problem (uses a component for this). The problem
    is, figuring out how to save the reports to the client.

    The ideal approach would be to have the app save the
    reports to his desktop, like some of those stupid casino
    sites save their shortcut links.

    However, I would settle for just just being able to force
    the "download" dialog to display, instead of opening
    Acrobat when the app attempts to send the report to the
    client.

    All suggestions/help would be appreciated.

    Tony
