Default VBscript to C# .net Script


I'm trying to recreate some code I know how to do in ASP vbscript in ASP.net C#.

Here is the code in vbscript.
Dim incfile, pg

'Define pg
pg = request.querystring("page")

'Logic for include
Select Case pg
  case "main"
     incfile = "main.asp"
  case "add"
     incfile = "add.asp"
  case "edit"
     incfile = "edit.asp"
End Select

home can I recreate this is asp.net c#? Can anyone help with this?

To be honest I'm not sure if works with asp.net, but in C# the VBS bit should look like this:
string incfile = null;
string pg = Request.QueryString["page"];

  case "main":
    incfile = "main.asp";
  case "add":
    incfile = "add.asp";
  case "edit":
    incfile = "edit.asp";
    // do something if none of the above?
The <%= incfile %> is the same.

Hope this helps

Did this ever work:

I thought that include files were included / combined first, before the combined page was parsed. So, when the file should be included, incfile doesn't have a value yet....

Anyway, are you familiar with User Controls in .NET? They more or less take the place of ASP includes, but offer a lot more. Additionally, when you included ASP files with mainly code, you could use the App_Code folder for shared methods.
