Newbie: Download a file from a web service

Discussion in 'ASP .Net Web Services' started by Daniel Johansson, Sep 2, 2003.

  1. Hi

    I have created a web service that on one function returns a dataset that
    should be saved as
    a file on the client´s side. How do I do that?
    If I cant use a dataset how should i proceed?

    Regards

    // Daniel

  2. Is the client a Web Browser or regular EXE program?

    If it's an EXE, return the dataset from the webservice, and use
    DataSet.writeXML()
    WriteXML allows you to save the Dataset as XML to a file.
