jQuery is an open source JavaScript library that enables you to manipulate DOM content in your web pages seamlessly. It was released in 2006 by John Resig. Since that time, it has become widely popular the world over and amongst the web application development community.

Decision Making and Looping

2010-05-26T11:01:12+00:00 June 1st, 2005|ASP|

A common feature of any programming script/language is, its ability to perform repeat tasks until a condition is satisfied, and, its ability to take decision. After all, there can be no logic if a program cannot decide what to do and what not to do (sounds like a Shakespearean statement).

There comes a time when you have to create very complex, very comprehensive online forms consisting of 30 to 40 fields. While debugging the form output, or while validating the individual form fields (for example, if all the fields have been filled), you need to dump all the form field with their names and with their respective values onto a web page so you can see exactly what is coming from where. This tutorial tells you how to do that.

I know some people don't like VBScript for being Microsoft-Centric, but it's very easy to get familiar with, and once you know how to create your ASP pages in VBScript, you can move on to any programming language of your choice.

A problem I have is that I have a lot of code doing the same thing. Recently, on a project I was doing, the URL's had to be encoded to make them more friendly. It looked something like this...
