Adding Multiple Values

Discussion in 'C#' started by gooseandluba, Feb 18, 2009.

    Here is a snippet from my page.asp file.

    <TD><% If rstDBEdit.Fields("Title").Value = "NEWS" Then
    Response.Buffer = True
    Dim objXMLHTTP, xml
    url = rstDBEdit.Fields("Body").Value

    What I want to do is change the Value = "NEWS" to

    Value = "WORLD NEWS" or "LOCAL NEWS" or "SPORTS NEWS"

    The reason I need to do this is because the way the code is currently written, I have to name all my newly created pages "NEWS". This becomes very confusing when adding 10-20 new pages.

    All thoughts are welcomed!

    that should be
    either
    
    tempTitle = rstDBEdit.Fields("Title").Value = "NEWS"
    if tempTitle = "WORLD NEWS" or tempTitle = "LOCAL NEWS" or tempTitle = "SPORTS NEWS" then 
     <your code here>
    end if
    
    Code (asp):
    or
    
    select case rstDBEdit.Fields("Title").Value = "NEWS"
     case "WORLD NEWS" , "LOCAL NEWS" , "SPORTS NEWS"
      <your code here>
    end select
    
    Code (asp):
    you could also just check if it ends in "NEWS" (but make sure that no titles end in NEWS if you do not want the to be parsed by this code..
    
    if right(rstDBEdit.Fields("Title").Value, 4) = "NEWS" then
     <your code here>
    end if
    
    Code (asp):
    take care

    I am sorry,

    i made a mistake in the copy/paste of your code ( i did not remove the final = "NEWS" part )

    they should be:
    
    tempTitle = rstDBEdit.Fields("Title").Value
    if tempTitle = "WORLD NEWS" or tempTitle = "LOCAL NEWS" or tempTitle = "SPORTS NEWS" then 
     <your code here>
    end if
    
    Code (asp):
    or
    
    select case rstDBEdit.Fields("Title").Value
     case "WORLD NEWS" , "LOCAL NEWS" , "SPORTS NEWS"
      <your code here>
    end select
    
    Code (asp):

    You are the best! I didn't think I had a hope in Hell of getting this to work.

    Many thanks to you.

    All right then... Let's try this.

    The pages that I am adding are newly created rss news feeds. Currently these pages are set up independently, meaning each rss feed has it's own dedicated page.

    Is there a way to add a news feed to a portion of a page that has other content on it such as the home page?

    Can't see why not,

    logically you should be able to use the same code you use on your independent pages..

    ( my understanding is that you read a feed and display its contents.. right ? )

    Your understanding is correct! I will mess around with that code and see what I can come up with.

    Thanks again.
