asp_discuss thread: request object + forms


Message #1 by vweston@m... on Mon, 10 Mar 2003 11:40:01
Does it really matter/effect performance if for one variable on a page you 
do not specify whether it is a request.form or request.querystring and 
instead just write request("variable")? I am sending a form to the same 
page where the variable could be either.

	From my personal experience, I don't seem to see any big difference
in performance.  This is due to the fact that the size of querystring is
limited to 128 bytes and even there's a difference in retrieving from
querystring or form, the difference isn't perceivable.  But if the quantity
of data is big, you have no choice but to use POST method.

	Hope this answer your question.
