Hi,
I would like to click a link within my page that should enable the user to download file from the server (the user should keep working on the page after the download completed).
I succeeded to do so by using the following code:

function Download(itemName)
window.open("http://...../FileDownloadServlet? itemName=" + encodeURIComponent(itemName), '_blank', "width=1,height=1,left=0,top=0");
}
…..
<a href=”javascript:void(0)” onClick=”Download(name[1]); return false;”>Click to download</a>

The problem I’m facing is that I’m using a new window for this action; can I do it without a window and with no using frames?

10x in advanced

I solved it using the <a href=... target="hiddenFRM">
...
<IFRAME name="hiddenFrm" FRAMEBORDER="0" WIDTH="1" HEIGHT="1"></IFRAME>
