Thank you for your posting.
I have inserted your response.write code. I get the following error:
Microsoft VBScript compilation (0x800A0401)
Expected end of statement
/glenvistaCS3_web/News_Results.asp, line 59, column 61
Response.Write("Value is """ & session("AccessLevel")) & """")
I am still learning the syntax. I understand "value is " is a text string. The next two "" I don't understand. & is joining (concatenation) session access level variable. Another &, but the last 4 ", I do not understand. Kindly explain.
Yes I did insert the response.write be for the case block.
I am busy having a look at the PDF chapter sample of your book. I enjoyed reading " smart controls made it possible to reduce the code required to build an application, decreasing the learning curve for new developers and increasing the productivity. " I believe that this is really going to help me as I am not too good with coding. I have for some time been considering the move to ASP.net. I have just upgraded to the Adobe CS3 web premium package. Most of my third-party extensions for Dreamweaver is for classic ASP, and a few can be used for either classic ASP, ASP.net, PHP as well as Cold Fusion. Switching to ASP.net requires visual Web developer which I believe is quite pricey. The express edition it for free. If I use the express in addition, would I be able to follow along using your book? Would I not experienced problems having both development platforms installed on one PC? Would I also be able to switch over to ASP.net using Dreamweaver. At this point in time it's all a matter of costs.
I have not learnt VBScript or VB
.net. I have some understanding of VBScript, but pretty limited. For ease of learning, what would you recommend between VB
net and C#. Maybe this is not the right place, but what is the opinion of cold fusion?
Historically I have always shied away from forums because of my lack of programming knowledge. I am truly amazed at the response I have received from all. I am really grateful to all. Thank you.
Reading further along your new book, I have noticed that I can use the free version to start learning ASP.net and also follow along in your book. I find myself in a Catch-22 situation, whereby I need to use what I have to earn a living and at the same time changing to a new development platform. The problem is time.
I do already own to wrox books: Beginning Databases and Beginning Active Server Pages 3.0. Is your current book available as an e-book. I find it much easier to read online then to page through a hardcopy book with extremely limited hand function.
Cheers for the moment.
