  1. I’m going to need some help navigating your website. For example, I recently went in there to find out about the File object and its members. I couldn't find a thing - Simple little thing like that. Can you help me out? Is there a book or article or something I can read?
  2. How can I increase the size of radio buttons and checkboxes, as well as the text size within text boxes and that within text-area boxes? I used the HTML command <FONT SIZE= ? > to increase the size, and it increases the size of the text, all right, but not the size of any of the above command buttons
  3. <%@ Language=JavaScript %> <HTML> <HEAD> Here, I’m guessing that “href=” section below refers to where the program goes to get the file to download from the server. The “download=” section I’m guessing Is where I tell the program where to download that file on my computer. I'm not entirely sure what the “img src=” section is for but we're not working with images so I am guessing I can leave in out <a href="http://ccs2468.com/books/books09.mdb" download="c:books09.xxx"> </a> <! img src="/images/myw3schoolsimage.jpg" alt="W3Schools"> </a> 4) I tried this too with no luck. <a href="/books/books09.mdb" download="c:books09.xxx"> </a> Done <-- I put this in just To show me that the program has run. But I run the program and then check on the computer, and nothing has been downloaded. what am I doing wrong? </BODY> </HTML>
  4. Okay, I have several programs I wrote in ASP (classic)/JavaScript that I run on my website, feeding from and storing to MDB and txt files stored on the server. I Periodically want to download and save these files on my computer. Right now, I have to fire-up my big, elaborate FTP system - a long and lengthy process. I was wondering if (and how) I could write a program so I could just click on a button on my screen and download the file? Just point me in the right direction and I will figure it out.
  5. I’m Working with classic asp. Great! 😀 Can you help me out with an address where I can study console()? I apparently don't know how to do this. I Google Console() and I get a bunch of links. I click a link and I just get more likes. Click again and I just get more links. . . And on and on and on.
  6. This is very frustrating. Using session I can store variables in the computer, and then recover them in the new instance Without having to pass them through the URL. But at that point it appears that I can only print the value of the variables, whereas I need to load that value into a variable that I can then manipulate and work with. W3schools help page Specifically shows that can be done., but it does not work for me. Is there something I'm doing wrong? ---------------------------------- ExistContents = "Exist"; newContents= "new"; %> <div id="result1"></div> <script> sessionStorage.setItem( "ExistContents", "<%Response.Write( ExistContents )%>" ) </script> <div id="result2"></div> <script> sessionStorage.setItem( "newContents", "<%Response.Write( newContents )%>" ) </script> <input type=hidden name= "to_do" value= "WriteEdit" > <input type="submit" value="Submit"> <% } //23 if( to_do == "WriteEdit" ) { //100 %> <div id="result1"></div> <script> document.getElementById("result1").innerHTML = sessionStorage.getItem("ExistContents"); </script> <div id="result2"></div> <script> document.getElementById("result2").innerHTML = sessionStorage.getItem("newContents"); </script> [So far all works great!] <div id="result1"></div> <script> var file1 = sessionStorage.getItem("ExistContents" ) <--- W3schools help page Specifically shows that can be done., but it does not work for me. Down below I print the value of file1, but I get undeclared identifier. 😩 </script> <div id="result2"></div> <script> var file2 = String( sessionStorage.getItem( "newContents" ) ) <-- I tried something else, here, which didn't work either </script> <% Response.Write( "file1= "+ file1 +"<br>" ) Response.Write("file2= "+ file2 +"<br>" )
  7. It's good to hear this should work. I have had the most success with this code - //--- try 4 -- ------------- ExistContents= “existing”; <textarea cols=100 rows=20 > <script> localStorage.setItem("NewContents",<%Response.Write( ExistContents ) %> ) </script> </textarea > <br> //------------------ <textarea> works fine, but then it prints out the localStorage command as though it were text, instead of Executing it. So then I tried this - //--- try 5 -- ------------- ExistContents= “existing”; <textarea cols=100 rows=20 > <%Response.Write( <script> localStorage.setItem( "NewContents", "ExistContents" ) </script> ) %> </textarea > <br> //------------------ . . . But that works no better.
  8. Got it.! I incorporated the <session> into an asp program, two if-blocks (I call those “instances”). In the first block I assign a value to my variable - (ExistingContents = “existing”). Using session object I then file that variable away in the computer. After clicking submit, the second block extracts the value and prints it - A simple little program that doesn't really do anything. At least I now know it can be done. What I need is to be able to edit the contents of “ExistingContents” with my keyboard And then have session file it away in the computer. In the past I've done this using <textarea>. I have tried for hours and hours and hours to figure out a way to Mix <textarea> with <session>, but with no luck. If I keep them separate, then one works but the other doesn't. I'm Wondering, Maybe I'm using the wrong functions. Is there possibly a different function or set of functions that would do these two operations without screwing each other up?
  9. I have a program right now that reads a file off my computer into <textarea>, I modify it, and then pass it all to another if-block, that then writes it all back to the file. And that works. The problem arises when I try to pass too much data. I calculate that I can pass 250 characters - any more and the program will crash. What if I have a file with several thousand characters? I thought maybe if I make my variable global, I could avoid the matter of passing anything. Global variables though are very frustrating, no one will help me, and I haven't got the time to screw around with this thing. So I was looking into “textarea,” Apparently, after I click submit, it seems that I can tell The computer to write everything to the file. Is that correct? In another program I can then open that file, get the data out, and write it all to the file. Below are the two programs. The second program, I just print the contents of the file - but I get FILE NOT FOUND. please what am I doing wrong? ------------ testpass.htm -------------- <!DOCTYPE html> <html> <body> <form action="/action_page.php"> Text:<br> <textarea name="explanation"dirname="explanation.dir"></textarea> <input type="submit" value="Submit"> </form> <p>When the form is being submitted, the text direction of the textarea will also be submitted.</p> </body> </html> ------------ testpass.asp -------------- <%@ Language=JavaScript %> <% var URLname = "E:\\web\\ccs2468com0\\htdocs\\action_page.php"; var ForReading = 1, ForWriting = 2, ForAppending = 8; var abs_path = String(Request.ServerVariables("PATH_TRANSLATED")); var file_to_open = URLname ; fso = new ActiveXObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject"); ; //<--FILE NOT FOUND fs_stream = fso.OpenTextFile (file_to_open, ForReading ) ExistContents = fs_stream.ReadAll(); //fs_stream.Write( MemoContents +" \r\n" ); fs_stream.close(); Response.Write( "ExistContents= "+ ExistContents +"<br>" ); ; %>
  10. Okay, I think I got a lot of that figured out. What I need to know about, is session. I can't find any listing for that in the reference . . . https://www.w3schools.com/jsref/default.asp I go on Google and type session and that tells me a little something .
  11. I seem to be having trouble navigating your website. I want to find information about a specific topic - for example Session, Object, File management, etc. In the past I would simply go your website, type in a few keywords into the search engine, and it would give me all the information I would need to know. Now I do that and it says CANNOT FIND. Could someone please help me? Where can I read the instructions on this? 😥
  12. It sure is a good thing you're there to help me with these things! I would never have known about sessions. So Below is what I found on the web - I get nothing but a blank screen, no errors, just a blank screen. It should print the value of sessions, shouldn’t it - “ID” and “code?” Can you tell me what I'm doing wrong? ----------------- testSession.asp ---------- <%@LANGUAGE="VBSCRIPT" CODEPAGE="65001"%> <% Session("id")=1234 Session("code")="ZZ" %> ----------------- testSession.htm (this is what I run) ---------- <html> <head></head> <body> <script type="text/javascript" src="asp/testSession.asp"> alert("Session ID " + Session("id")); </script> </body>
