Popup a txt file to download

I used the Essential XlsIO to generate an excel file with some data inside. It works very well and the user then download the file while Syncfusion popup the file to download.

I would like to do the same with a simple text (.txt) file..
In fact, we give two choices to the user.. Download an excel file generated by syncfusion tool, or download a text file wich we fill ourselves with tabulation separator. But then you know IE does not popup txt files.. So is there any SyncFusion Tool which can let us popup such a simple text file.. Like the XlsIO does ??

Thanks a lot,

Hello Raji,

Thank you very much.

I found an ASP.NET solution with "Response.TransmitFile"..

It was not a real problem since it is a problem wich is often asked when developing web pages (blame to me).. and there already are some solutions on the internet, to popup file (just changing mime type of a page and it works)..

But if one day SynCfusion permit to fill a txt file like it is possible for excel file, it would be great.. (for example, i give the syncfusion xlsIO tool some datatable and it returns to me the excel file.. if possible with a txt file, it would be good)

thanks again
