file download problem

Hey there everyone, I have a problem with file download in Sahi. I'm trying to download some files from an external website and I'm getting some weird behavior from Sahi. For one thing, when I click on the link, it opens a new window, so I did this:

_sendHTMLResponseAfterFileDownload(true);
_click(_link($nomLien));
_saveDownloadedAs("test.XLSX");
_sendHTMLResponseAfterFileDownload(false);

And also, here's the console output from Sahi:

Now, I have a few problems. Here's the list:

1) Instead of the actual file, download_lastFile is set to the name of the page that actually starts the download and not the name of the file
2) _saveDownloadedAs creates an empty file while the actual file is downloaded in the default temp folder.
3) Sahi injects html inside the downloaded file rendering it unreadable unless I actually delete the added content.

Anybody have any idea? I added

.*Rapports3_Reports3[.]aspx.*

to the exclude_inject.txt file without success. Anyone has any idea?

Thanks in advance,

  • _click(_button("Button"));
    _click(_submit("PDF"));

    _saveDownloadedAs("c:/path/Report.pdf"); // save to another path
    _clearLastDownloadedFileName(); // clear the variable
  • Thanks for the response surimca09. However, I'm not entirely certain what to make of it given that there are no buttons and no submit anywhere on the page I'm downloading from. All the links are javascript calls which look something like this:

    javascript:__doPostBack('ctl00$contenuPrincipal$lstRapports$ctl01$lnkAfficherRapport','')

    These open a new window which then downloads the file before closing itself automatically. The website is external so I have no control over anything. Also:

    1) Instead of the actual file, download_lastFile is set to the name of the page that actually starts the download and not the name of the file
    2) _saveDownloadedAs creates an empty file while the actual file is downloaded in the default temp folder.
    3) Sahi injects html inside the downloaded file rendering it unreadable unless I actually delete the added content.

    So I'm still rather stumped as to what's going on
