Small problem with PHP file download

Guys,

 

I upload my files with the following scripts which work pretty well...

 

<?
unction addProdContent()
{
if(isset($_POST['upload']) && $_FILES['userfile']['size'] > 0)
{
	$fileName = $_FILES['userfile']['name'];
	$tmpName  = $_FILES['userfile']['tmp_name'];
	$fileSize = $_FILES['userfile']['size'];
	$fileType = $_FILES['userfile']['type'];

	$fp      = fopen($tmpName, 'r');
	$content = fread($fp, filesize($tmpName));
	$content = addslashes($content);
	fclose($fp);

	if(!get_magic_quotes_gpc())
	{
		$fileName = addslashes($fileName);
	}

	$sql = "SELECT * FROM mogas_productscontent WHERE Name = '$fileName'";
	$result = dbQuery($sql);

	if (dbNumRows($result) == 1) 
	{
		header('Location: index.php?view=add&error=' . urlencode('File already uploaded. Choose another one'));	
	} 
	else
	{

	$query = "INSERT INTO mogas_productscontent (Name, Size, Type, Content, DateAdded ) ". "VALUES ('$fileName', '$fileSize', '$fileType', '$content', Now())";

	mysql_query($query) or die('Error, query failed');
	}
}

header('Location: index.php');	
}
?>

 

My problem is downloading the files. I mean for a user to click on a link and get a Save As Window.

 

How do I achieve this?

 

This is the script I am using currently...

<?
require_once 'mogas_utils.php';

//require_once'template.php';

//pgheader('MGS International - Downloads');


$query = "SELECT * FROM mogas_productscontent";
$result = mysql_query($query) or die('Error, query failed');
if(mysql_num_rows($result) == 0)
{
echo "Database is empty <br>";
}
else
{
while(list($productscontentid, $Name) = mysql_fetch_array($result))
{
?>
<a href="d.php?id=<?php echo $productscontentid; ?>"><?php echo $Name; ?></a> <br>
<?php
}
}
?>


<?php
if(isset($_GET['id']))
{
// if id is set then get the file with the id from database

$id    = $_GET['id'];

$query = "SELECT * FROM mogas_productscontent WHERE productscontentid = '$id'";

$result = mysql_query($query) or die('Error, query failed');
list($Name, $Type, $Size, $Content) = mysql_fetch_array($result);

header("Content-length: $Size");
header("Content-type: $Type");
header("Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=$Name");
echo $Content;
exit;
}

?>

 

What this does is attempt to open the PDF files in the same window with jumbled characters.

I want to download my files thus:

 

Give a user a link which they click to get a Save As dialogue

 

Please help.

By what I'm guessing, You click the pdf link, and it then opens up a dialog box with one button saying 'save as' ?

 

I don't understand what it is you are trying to do what the 'user' clicks the link for download.
