Download File and Update Panel

Hi Experts,

I have a linkbutton inside the repeater control. if the linkbutton is clicked it will download a file if it is outside from the update panel. But if i put the repeater control inside the update panel, file download doesn't take effect. The problem is, how could i download a file through the linkbutton even if the controls are inside the update panel? any ideas will be greatly appreciated.

you can not download a file if link button is inside update panel because it needs full postback. Try setting conditional postback on update panel and add event triggers for link button.
