Determining whether a user downloaded a file

I have a download command button on my ASP.NET page to download a text file. I want to be able to determine if the user actually downloaded the file. A small window comes up asking me if I want to open, save or cancel. How do I determine if the user clicked on the cancel button and whether he actually downloaded the page or not?
There's no way of doing that. You're no longer in control, but the browser application is.
