.asp / blogger.com brain scratcher...

Discussion in 'C#' started by grobar, Jun 1, 2006.

    I have an .asp file that generates a nav menu.

    I have tried and tried to "include" this in the blogger template, so that I can update the menu dynamically, without fiddling with a cumbersome blogger template all of the time.

    The question is, does anyone know how I can "call" this file in to the template successfully?

    I have tried using <script> tags: something like:

    <script type="text/javascript" src="http://url.com/menu.asp"></script>
    SEMrush
    But had no success.

    Does anyone know how I can accomplish this?

    if it's an asp file you want to include then try

    <!--#include file=myfile.asp-->

    better still name it as "myfile.asa" as that's the convention for asp includes ( I believe)

    regards

    the blogger system doesn't like that method of includes.

    that didn't work.

    I know the .asp page works, as I use it on the main site with no problems.

    I've figured this out! (with the help of ChrisHirst over at tek-tips)

    See this article:

    http://www.4guysfromrolla.com/webtech/110100-1.shtml

    In short, I had to let the .asp page do its processing on the server, then capture the output using xmlhttp requests.

    the code I specifically used, was this: (saved on my server as an .asp file, then called as an include in the blogger template.)

    <%
      Response.Buffer = True
      Dim objXMLHTTP, xml
    
      ' Create an xmlhttp object:
      Set xml = Server.CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP")
      ' Or, for version 3.0 of XMLHTTP, use:
      ' Set xml = Server.CreateObject("MSXML2.ServerXMLHTTP")
    
      ' Opens the connection to the remote server.
      xml.Open "GET", "http://www.mysite.com/menu.asp", False
    	
      ' Actually Sends the request and returns the data:
      xml.Send
    
      Response.Write xml.responseText
     
      
      Set xml = Nothing
    %>
    
    
    Code (markup):
    Since the processing and output of this page is just html, blogger has no problems with it. Thanks for the nudge in the right direction.
