Download File with file name in Japanese Character get's Garbled RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am returning a Stream as data of an API and i am making sure to set the required headers.

    WebOperationContext.Current.OutgoingResponse.ContentType = "application/force-download";
    WebOperationContext.Current.OutgoingResponse.Headers.Add("Content-disposition", "attachment;filename=" + Uri.EscapeDataString(fileName));

    In case of file name having only english characters i am able to receive the data with proper file name.

    When file name posses non english characters then only in IE the downloaded file name is of random characters. In chrome and Firefox able to receive proper file name.

    How to take care of this problem?
