Learning ASP Series -- Getting Your Hands Dirty With VBScript

Written by Amrit Hallan

I know some people don't like VBScript for being Microsoft-Centric, but it's very easy to get familiar with, and once you know how to create your ASP pages in VBScript, you can move on to any programming language of your choice.

First thing first: HTML tags and ASP scripts don't socialize well, and although it is not a politically correct agenda, you have to segregate them. Whenever you are writingrepparttar VBScript code for ASP, encloserepparttar 131914 code within <% %>.

So if you want to initialize a VBScript variable, do it like this:

<% Dim name name = "Tutan Khamen" %>

For instance, if you want to userepparttar 131915 variable "name" in your HTML (ASP, actually) page, all you have to do is:

<%@Language=VBScript%> <% Option Explicit %> Testing a VBSCript< itle> </head> <body> <% Dim name name = "Tutan Khamen" %> <br><br></font></td><!-- google_ad_section_end --><!-- google_ad_section_start(weight=ignore) --><td align="top" width="10%"></td><td align="top" width="45%"><h2>Plop, Drop, And Flop</h2><font size="2">Written by Rod Davis</font><br><br><script type="text/javascript"><!-- google_ad_client = "pub-5766870852072819"; google_ad_width = 234; google_ad_height = 60; google_ad_format = "234x60_as"; google_ad_channel ="9238851329"; google_color_border = "CFB9A1"; google_color_bg = "CFB9A1"; google_color_link = "000000"; google_color_url = "431B02"; google_color_text = "431B02"; //--></script> <script type="text/javascript" src="http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js"> </script> <br> <font size="2">The increase in Internet businesses have again brought a wave of inexperienced marketers.
