The following code is copied from the DocumentFactory from the Document Viewer Demo.

DocumentFactory.DownloadDocument(cache, documentId, 0, -1, outputStream);

Is it possible to convert the outputstream to a local file?

Hello Vicki,

If you're wanting to output to a file, you can simply provide a FileStream. Below is an example using the code you sent previously:
Code:

using (var outputStream = System.IO.File.OpenWrite(someFilePath))
    DocumentFactory.DownloadDocument(cache, documentId, 0, -1, outputStream);

Hi, it works.
May I have a further question, whether I can get the stream to memorystream?

I note that all the download file will return as a HttpResponseMessage, then the URL will be opened in browser.

Is it possible that I can have the file downloaded as memorystream (so that I can attach it in an email), no new browser will be shown?

Hello Vicki,

I'm not sure I understand your question. I'm not aware of anything being automatically opened in a browser when using our C# DocumentViewer demo. If you're simply wanting to save to a MemoryStream, you can simply supply it instead of the FileStream:
Code:

using (var outputStream = new System.IO.MemoryStream())
    DocumentFactory.DownloadDocument(cache, documentId, 0, -1, outputStream);

File Attachment(s):
Doc1.docx (482kb) downloaded 69 time(s).


When I click "local save", a new page is prompt.

BTW, I tried to use using (var outputStream = new System.IO.MemoryStream()), however, the attachment found in the email is corrupted.

I added the attachment by new System.Net.Mail.Attachment(outputStream , new System.Net.Mime.ContentType("application/pdf")), which should be found for other memorystream.

Hello Vicki,

The issue here is you're talking about two different portions of the demo. The local save button is within the HTML portion of the demo (the front-end), while anything with streams, direct file I/O, or the DocumentFactory is within the service (the back-end).

The reason a new page is prompted is because the file you are attempting to download is able to be viewed by your browser. If you don't want a new page to be opened, you can simply right-click the link and choose "Save link as...". Unfortunately, a hyperlink can't force the client to download the file when clicking, this behavior is up to the browser. In general, if the file type is supported for viewing within the browser, it will open a new tab using that URL. If the file type is not supported, you will be prompted (by the browser) for saving the file.

As far as the MemoryStream goes, when writing to a stream, its position will typically be positioned at the end of the stream. If you want to use that stream for later purposes, you'll want to reset the position so reading occurs from the beginning of the stream. That can be done by simply setting the Position property to 0:
Code:

using (var outputStream = new System.IO.MemoryStream())
{
    // Write to the stream
    outputStream.Position = 0;
    // Read from the stream
}
