Hi

i´m trying to create a method which generates an ics file and sends it to the browser as a download. This is a first test i made:

function calendar(){

$test = 'BEGIN:VCALENDAR
VERSION:2.0
PRODID:-//hacksw/handcal//NONSGML v1.0//EN
BEGIN:VEVENT
UID:uid1@example.com
DTSTAMP:19970714T170000Z
ORGANIZER;CN=John Doe:MAILTO:john.doe@example.com
DTSTART:19970714T170000Z
DTEND:19970715T035959Z
SUMMARY:Bastille Day Party
END:VEVENT
END:VCALENDAR';

return SS_HTTPRequest::send_file($test, "calendar.ics","text/calendar");
}

but for some reasons it doesn´t work. when calling this method, the browser only displays the text, no download :/

any idea?

Thank you :)
