Looking for a code that helps you download Media items from sitecore? This post might help you. Based on a project requirement I was asked to work on a functionality for having a download brochure drop down. A thought might have come to your mind why a drop down for downloading brochures, well my mind too said “what a wired request?”. Why not we just display links for the brochures. But we need to follow the designs and respect client’s requirements. So I created a drop down which displayed items that comes from a multilist field. Initially I had the media item’s url as the options value for my drop down, but then came across GetMediaStream() method which does the work for getting a media item into a stream so I tweaked my approach and passed item ID in the value for options.

To be cent percent sure, I tried the query with xpath builder tool in developer center and had the same error displayed.
