I have several pages in my site that are using an UpdatePanel to allow partial postbacks to step through the process of selecting options for a dynamic report. An internal user just came to me and said "I ran this report and then clicked 'File -> Save As .mht' to save it to my desktop, and when I opened the resulting file, it was the first selection option rather than the result.
I have verified myself that this is the case. If this particular page has for example, 4 states: 1st option, 2nd option, 3rd option, Resulting Report.. All coming from the same page, just different panels being shown for each step. When the user is viewing the resulting report and clicks File -> Save As, the file that is saved is of the 1st option, not the results.
I know one way around this would be to add a link to the page to "Save as PDF" or whatever, and then I'd have to write the code to generate that file... and I can do that if I need to. I just thought that the user should also be able to Save their current page at any point by clicking Save As.
Is this possible with MS Ajax? Maybe this is an Ajax thing, and not a MS thing?
Anybody know how to save the web page's current view (ie: what is currently visible)?
