Default running scrolling text from stored procedure in VS

I am updating a VS 6 classic asp file to VS 2005. This asp page contained codes
 to run a scrolling text, which is extracted from a database stored procedure. My first
runn of the scrolling text codes in my VS 2005 returned 2 error messages.

1. Public member 'Execute' on type 'String' not found.
       To get the scrolling text, the classic ASP file has the following codes:

          sqlText = "StoredProcedureName"
          set rdScrollingText=conniTemp.Execute(sqlText)

 What is conniTemp? How it creates a rs? Because VS 2005 does not support
rs, what can we do to get the scrolling text from the stored procedure? Creating
a dataset? How?

2. <marguee> is not supported in VS2005.
    How to run the "marguee" in VS 2005?

Any other information on scrolling text for VS2005 is greatly appreciated.

Hi there,

You may want to read up a little on accessing databases. A good place to start is the ADO.NET Quick Starts: http://samples.gotdotnet.com/quickst...sOverview.aspx

You then probably want to use ExecuteScalar: http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/lib...utescalar.aspx

Finally, <marguee> has always been an IE only tag. It's not a matter of whether VS 2005 supports it or not, but whether browsers support it. VS just wants you about that. If you're only targeting IE, you can continue to use it; otherwise, look into JavaScript solutions.


Hope this helps,
