question about xmlhttp and ASP

Discussion in 'C#' started by gworld, Apr 22, 2005.

    I am trying to get a rss feed with following code:
    SEMrush

    Set xmlHTTP = Server.CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP")
    xmlHTTP.Open "GET",strXMLfile,false
    xmlHTTP.SetRequestHeader "Content-type", "text/xml"
    xmlHTTP.Send

    strXML = xmlHTTP.ResponseText


    As long as the server that provides the rss feed is running, then my script is fine but if rss feed server has a problem and doesn't respond, then I will get an error message

    msxml3.dll error '800c0008' when script executes xmlHttp.Send , how can I check the statue of rss feed server, so if it is not ready then I won't execute the xmlHTTP.Send?

    Thanks.

    If xmlHTTP.status = 200 Then strXML = xmlHTTP.ResponseText

    This checks to see if the GET returned a 200, which means the request has succeeded. To see a full list of potential response codes, check:
