//file name is 1.pdf

string strMapPath = Server.MapPath(Request.Url.AbsolutePath.Substring(0, Request.Url.AbsolutePath.LastIndexOf(“//”) + 1)) + @”\PDFFile\1.pdf”;

//enter the content type (describe the pdf)

Response.ContentType = “application/pdf”;

//in the filename you can give whatever you want

//when download the file at that save this file with this filename

//Adds an HTTP header to the output stream.

Response.AppendHeader(“Content-Disposition”, “attachment; filename=applicationfile.pdf”);

//TransmitFile do –> Writes the specified file directly to an HTTP response output stream without buffering it in memory


//End Response
