A dialogue is just a form, so you create it like any other form. To actually download the file, you would probably create a WebClient and call DownloadFileAsync, allowing you to display progress and cancel.

Ok :D

Hi, i know that it's onlya dialog box (form), but the question is how i can get the dialog box to show when a user clicks a link to a download, like http://mydomain.com/file.exe and not if he/she is going to a link like: Google only files that is going to be downloaded.

Thanks for your reply
