Want to Force a Download? Just Zip It!

Posted on: 6/20/2008 9:43:36 AM under ASP » Scripts and Tips 
 

Web browsers by default will automatically display any files they can. This is handy for displaying gifs, jpgs, etc. But sometimes you want visitors to download your files instead of just view them, like Microsoft Word, Excel, and even PDF files.

The easiest way is to contain them in a Zip file, which will automatically download. But if for whatever reason this is not the best solution for you, there are ways of adding ASP code to you pages to force download of the files instead of viewing.

For more information on how to do this, see these resources:

How to Cheat at VBScript

Posted on: 6/18/2008 9:28:49 AM under ASP » Scripts and Tips 
 
Programmers are generally a cavalier bunch. They pooh-pooh instruction manuals, preferring instead to just get into the code and get their hands dirty.

This is great if you are a "natural born coder." But if you're not, you might want a little bit of a shortcut.

Microsoft provides great documentation on VBScript including what it is and how it works. There are also sections on programming fundamentals and a scripting introduction.

Now hard-core coders may call this cheating, but if it helps you learn faster, we're all for it. We won't tell anyone you have an extra ace in your hand...

Using Server Variables in ASP

Posted on: 6/16/2008 9:58:12 AM under ASP » Scripts and Tips 
 


Sometimes it is useful to find and display certain server variables on your web page. For example, you might find it necessary to add the user's IP address to your current page. To do this, you will be requesting the Server Variables.

The syntax is actually quite easy:


<% Response.Write "Your IP Address is: " & Request.ServerVariables("REMOTE_ADDR") %>


This will return:

Your IP Address is: 155.155.155.155

You can find a whole list of Server Variables at the W3 Schools site:

Happy Scripting!
