The Differences between Active Server Pages and Conventional HTML With conventional static HTML, the user types in a Web address and the browser sends a request for the Web page to a Web server. The Web server receives the request and retrieves the appropriate HTML file from a disk or memory and transmits it back to the browser. The user's Web browser translates the HTML file and the results are displayed in the browser window. The results are static as long as the underlying HTML page is unchanged. Static Web pages are used when information is not expected to change much over time. Static Web pages are ideal for home pages or sites where content is not going to be modified frequently. In order to make changes to static Web pages, one must edit the HTML file. ASP and conventional HTML work in almost the same way. One major difference between ASP and conventional HTML is that ASP is dynamic. This is because with ASP, scripting code runs on the server
Since ASP pages produce standard HTML. you should have installed ASP.and produces HTML output. Anything not delimited as script will be sent directly to the output.ASP page by changing the file extension. you need to confirm that you have an ASP-enabled Web server installed on your computer. ASP is a component of the latest version of IIS. Web Server Installation Before being able to run ASP pages. Creating and Converting Active Server Pages You can create ASP files using any text editor or Web development tool. Just remember to convert your existing . This informs the server to process the page and produce the HTML output proceeding sequentially through the file. When a browser requests an ASP file from the Web server. This means that the same ASP page might produce HTML that appears in the browser differently each time it is requested. Internet Information Server (IIS) .html page to an . the ASP interpreter reads through the ASP file. If you have installed Windows NT or Personal Web Server (PWS) for Windows 9x on your system. they require no specific browser. you were most likely asked if you wanted to install Internet Information Server (IIS). executes any of the ASP commands contained within and sends the resulting HTML to the browser. which is a component of the latest Windows NT Option Pack. any scripts will be executed and their results sent to the output. After installing IIS. which is then sent to the browser for display. An ASP file can contain any combination of HTML and script.
intWeekDay. intWeekDay. Dim dtmCurrent. <html> <head> <title>Date and Time</title> </head> <body> <html> <head> <title>Date and Time</title> </head> <body> <% <% Dim dtmCurrent.We can even produce the actual day by using a slightly more complex If Then or Select Case structure. strWeekDay strWeekDay dtmCurrent = Date dtmCurrent = Date intWeekDay = intWeekDay = WeekDay(dtmCurrent) WeekDay(dtmCurrent) Select Case intWeekDay If intWeekDay = 1 Then Case 1 strWeekDay = "Sunday" strWeekDay = "Sunday" ElseIf intWeekDay = 2 Then Case 2 strWeekDay = "Monday" strWeekDay = "Monday" ElseIf intWeekDay = 3 Then Case 3 strWeekDay = "Tuesday" strWeekDay = "Tuesday" ElseIf intWeekDay = 4 Then Case 4 strWeekDay = "Wednesday" strWeekDay = "Wednesday" ElseIf intWeekDay = 5 Then Case 5 strWeekDay = "Thursday" strWeekDay = "Thursday" ElseIf intWeekDay = 6 Then Case 6 strWeekDay = "Friday" strWeekDay = "Friday" ElseIf intWeekDay = 7 Then Case 7 strWeekDay = "Saturday" strWeekDay = "Saturday" Else Case Else strWeekDay = "Something strWeekDay = "Something obviously went wrong!" obviously went wrong!" End If End Select %> %> . Below is an example of displaying the current day of the week by using the If Then or Select Case structure.
Therefore.Write("your statement here") For example: <% Response. <%=expression %> sends the value of the expression to the browser.Write("Hello" & "<BR>") Response. when run on a Wednesday. Response. response. is shown below.Write("Hi There") %> produces the output "Hello" followed by "Hi There" on the next line. In general. It is also a very simple process to output text to the browser using the following alternate syntax: Response.write tells the server to write its arguments directly to the HTML page being created. Notice the & "<BR>" within the first response.Today is <%=strWeekDay %> </body> </html> Today is <%=strWeekDay %> </body> </html> The result of this page.write. The server is interpreting all statements between the <% %> delimiter tags before the client sees the page.write("Hello" & "<BR>") places Hello <BR> in the HTML .
Although <BR> is a tag recognized in HTML as a line break.asp in your virtual directory. <html> <head> <title>Date. interpreted by the server. of course.Write "Good afternoon! How are you? " Else Response. Keep in mind that HTML is interpreted by the browser and ASP is.Write "Good morning! How are you? " ElseIf intH < 17 Then Response.file.Write "Do you know what time it is? " ElseIf intH < 12 Then Response. Other Sample ASP Code Enter the following code now and save it in a file called test2.Time. produces a line break after the "Hello" when the HTML is displayed in the browser. and Display</title> </head> <body> <p> The time is <%= Time %> <p> Today's date is <%= Date %> <p> <% Dim intH intH = Hour(Now) If intH < 6 Then Response. as stated earlier.Write "Good evening! How are you? " End If %> . This. ASP does not recognize <BR>.
