Objectives[edit]

  • Embed ASP scripting code into a web page.
  • Upload your ASP page to a server.
  • Test your page by viewing it in a web browser.

Content[edit]

ASP is delimited with "<% and %>"
within these delimiters is your custom code that is executed in the server.

Here is a small fragment of an ASP code (it outputs "My First ASP" on your browser):

<%
Response.Write "My First ASP"
%>

Or you could put the text into a pre-defined variable:

<%
Dim MyText
 
MyText = "My First ASP Page"
Response.Write MyText
%>


Here is a way to separate your code from your page layout.

<%@LANGUAGE="VBSCRIPT" CODEPAGE="1252"%>
<%
 
Dim MyText
 
MyText = "My First ASP"
 
%>
 
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"
 "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">
<html>
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
<title>My First ASP</title>
</head>
 
<body>
<%=(MyText)%>
</body>
</html>
