You may inadvertently be sending other content back after Response. BinaryWrite which may confuse the browser. End will ensure that that the browser only gets what you really intend.
We've used this with a lot of success. Since you're sending the file directly from your filesystem with no intermediate processing, why not use Response. TransmitFile instead? I suspect that your problem is caused by a missing Response. End , meaning that you're sending the rest of your page's content appended to the PDF data. It is not recommended to call Response. Close or Response. End - instead use CompleteRequest.
Please read this before using Response. In my MVC application, I have enabled gzip compression for all responses. If you are reading this binary write from an ajax call with gzipped responses, you are getting the gzipped bytearray rather than original bytearray that you need to work with.
Here is my code I've also tried using File. Clear ; Response. AddHeader "content-disposition", String. GetFileName path ; Response. GetExtension path. Substring 1 ; Response. Mo Patel 2, 4 4 gold badges 19 19 silver badges 33 33 bronze badges.
Are you seeing KB in the code sample you provided fs. Length , or at the other end when you read this back in? After I get the file back I checked the size, I was forgetting to put a Response.
End on there as pointed out by BarneyHDog. This is not entirely related but deals with the filename you add to the header. Not sure it's fixed now but Chrome would produce a "Duplicate Headers" warning for me when the file name contained a comma in it until I changed the header to the following: context.
Here's a link to the reference: What is the "Duplicate Headers" Warning? Active Oldest Votes. Try adding Response. End ; after the call to Response. This is kind of flushing the buffer. Very important, because every byte counts to make the stream valid. This worked for me: Response.

This method is useful for writing nonstring information, such as binary data required by a custom application. If you have an object that generates an array of bytes, you can use the following call to BinaryWrite to send the bytes to a custom application:. An ASP application uses internal server buffers when writing data to the client, irrespective of the value of Response. As the application is writing data synchronously, the data buffer can be reused when the BinaryWrite function returns, while the server is writing the data asynchronously to the client. The server, in turn, makes a copy of the data into its internal buffers. As a result of this buffering, the ASP application should not try to send unreasonable amounts of data in a single BinaryWrite , but rather break it into fragments so as to avoid running out of buffer space.
