FileDownload UI - AllowSave option not working


Hi All,

I am creating a WD4A application which has an option of file upload/download. The application is working fine while uploading the files. Now when i try to download the files using "FileDownload UI element" the application does not ask me for the option to save the attachment. It tries to open the file in the browser window itself.

I did note that there is a property "Behaviour" under the FileDownload properties. I had tried changing this setting to "AllowSave" but still the reaction is same. As a result if i download a txt file i can see the contents in the HTML page. Similarly if i try to download a DOC file (which has some MS word formatting inside) a HTML webpage with the documents contents mixed with some junk characters open up.

Moreover even after changing this behaviour in properties, the "Field Help" in the application screen (accessed by right clicking on the "Download" element in application screen and selection the option "More Field Help") shows the attribute behaviour as "Auto" instead of the value "AllowSave"!!!

Has anyone faced this issue before? Do we have any other setting for this purpose?
