Windows 7 - IE 9 - File download dialog box - Asked By Saravana kumar on 13-Feb-12 06:10 AM

Hi,

I am trying to download file in IE 9 and the page which behind the dialog box(file download) should be closed after the file opened.

It is possible and working fine in IE 8 because separate dialog window is opened for file download (used Onblur event to close the window).

But In the case of IE9,Notification bar appears at the bottom of the page and does not change the current focus. So I am not able to close the page. Is there any way to display the File download dialog box in IE 9 or any way to close the page?

Try turning off the information in IE:

  1. Open Internet Explorer by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, and then clicking Internet Explorer.

  2. Click the Tools button, and then click Internet Options.

  3. Click the Security tab, and then click Custom level.

  4. Do one or both of the following:

    • To turn off the Information bar for ActiveX controls, scroll to the ActiveX controls and plug-ins section of the list, and then, under Automatic prompting for ActiveX controls, click Enable.

    • To turn off the Information bar for file downloads, scroll to the Downloads section of the list, and then, under Automatic prompting for file downloads, click Enable.
