Jason's Tutorial..

Comenting your code:

<%

Response.write "Hello World" 'Outputes "Hello world"

Note: A comment has a single quote in front of it. (')

%>

Hello World

 

If Statement

<%

If "2" = "2" Then

Response.write"True"

End if

%>

True

 

If ...Else

<%

If "2" = "3" Then

Response.write "True"

Else

Response.write "Its 2!"

End if

%>

Its 2!

 

Request.QueryString

<%

'If our QueryString matches what we want then we can show what we want

If Request.QueryString("display") = "message" then

Response.write "My message"

End if

 

%>

My message

 

More then 1 Request.QueryString

<%

'If our QueryString matches what we want then we can show what we want

If Request.QueryString("display") = "test" then

Response.write "QueryString "test" worked!"

End if

If Request.QueryString("show") = "test" then

Response.write "QueryString "test2" worked!"

End if

Note:

' Your linke will look something like this when clicked:

' default.asp?display=test&show="test"

' & Seperates QueryStrings in a link.

 

%>

QueryString test worked!QueryString test2 worked!

 

Include file

<%

<!--#include file="myfile.asp"-->

%>

Includes a file into your page. This makes it easy to have a bunch of code that you use all the time on one page, but yet you don't have to have a big long page of it. You can also just update the file with all your code, and then each page that has the include will have the update as well.

 

Write a form in ASP.

<%

Response.write "<form name=""form1"" method=""post"" action=""default.asp"">"
Response.write "<input type=""text"" name=""textfield"">"
Response.write "<input type=""submit"" name=""Submit"" value=""Submit"">"
Response.write "</form>"

'Note: Each quote inside the Response.write quotes must have double quotes!

'Example: Response.write "Hello there ""Welcome"" to my site!"

%>

Show your form results on the same page..

<%

Response.write "<form name=""form2"" method=""post"" action=""default.asp?display=formresults"">""
Response.write "<input type="text"" name=""areform"">"
Response.write "<input type=""submit"" name=""Submit"" value=""Submit"">"
Response.write "</form>"

If Request.QueryString("display") = "formresults" then

Response.write(Request.Form("areform"))

End if

%>

Dim to memory

<%

' Use this to store anything you want for use later also known as a string

MyText = "Hello World!"

Response.write(MyText)

%>

Hello World!

 

Replace something in a string

<%

MyString = "Jason is the best programmer in the world!"

NewString = Replace(MyString, "best","<b>worst</b>")

'Notes: YourNewString = Replace(String to look in, "Word that you want to look for", "Repalce with this" )

Response.write(NewString)

%>

Jason is the worst programmer in the world!

 

Select Combo

 

'This shows how to have the right one in the combo selected, depending on which they slected so even if the refresh it will stay on the right combo.

<form name="form1">

<select name="jumpmenu" onChange="MM_jumpMenu('parent',this,0)">
<option value="default.asp?link=test1" <% If Request.QueryString("link") = "test1" then Response.write "selected" %>>test1</option>
<option value="default.asp?link=test2"<% If Request.QueryString("link") = "test2" then Response.write "selected" %>>test2</option>
<option value="default.asp?link=test3" <% If Request.QueryString("link") = "test3" then Response.write "selected" %>>test3</option>
</select>
</form>

 

 

Math:

<%

a = "1"

b = "2"

c = a * b ' Multiplication

Response.write(c)

Response.write "<br>"

a = "1"

b = "2"

If a < b Then

Response.write "yes b is greater then a"

End if

%>

yes b is greater then a

 

Aray:

<%

MyArayString = "a b c | d | e f | g h i j | k l m n | o p | q r s | t u v | w y x z"

sAray = Split(MyArayString, "|") 'Split up our data in between | |

For each x in sAray

Response.write x

Next 'Goto next one until it there are no more

%>
