Comenting
   your code:

  

<%


  

Response.write
    "Hello World"
'Outputes "Hello
    world"


  

Note: A comment has a single quote in front of
    it. (')


  

%>


  
Hello World

 




  


  


  

If
  
Statement

  

<%


  

If "2"
    = "2" Then


  

Response.write"True"


  

End if


  

%>


  
True

 




  


  


  

If
  
...Else

  

<%


  

If "2"
    = "3" Then


  

Response.write
    
"True"


  

Else


  

Response.write
    
"Its
    2!"


  

End if


  

%>


  
Its 2!

 




  


  


  

Request.QueryString

  

<%


  

'If
    our QueryString matches what we want then we can show what we want


  

If Request.QueryString("display")
    = "message" then


  

Response.write
    "My message"


  

End if


  

 


  

%>


  
My message

 




  


  


  

More
   then 1 Request.QueryString

  

<%


  

'If
    our QueryString matches what we want then we can show what we want


  

If Request.QueryString("display")
    = "test" then


  

    

Response.write
     "QueryString "test" worked!"


  

  

End if


  

If Request.QueryString("show")
    = "test" then

    


  

    

Response.write
     "QueryString "test2" worked!"


  

  

End if


  

Note:


  

' Your linke
    will look something like this when clicked:


  

' default.asp?display=test&show="test"


  

' & Seperates
    QueryStrings in a link.


  

 


  

%>


  
QueryString test worked!QueryString test2 worked!

 




  


  


  

Include
   file

  

<%


  

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


  

%>


  

  

    

Includes a file into your page. This makes it easy to have a bunch
     of code that you use all the time on one page, but yet you don't have
     to have a big long page of it. You can also just update the file with
     all your code, and then each page that has the include will have the
     update as well.


  

  

 




  


  


  

Write
   a form in ASP.

  

<%


  

Response.write
    "<form name=""form1"" method=""post""
    action=""default.asp"">"

    
Response.write
    "<input type=""text"" name=""textfield"">"

    
Response.write
    "<input type=""submit"" name=""Submit""
    value=""Submit"">"

    
Response.write
    "</form>"


  

'Note:
    Each quote inside the Response.write quotes must have double quotes!


  

'Example:
    Response.write "Hello there ""Welcome"" to my
    site!"


  

%>

    "<form name=""form2"" method=""post""
    action=""default.asp?display=formresults"">""

    
Response.write
    "<input type="text""
    name=""areform"">"

    
Response.write
    "<input type=""submit"" name=""Submit""
    value=""Submit"">"

    
Response.write
    "</form>"

    = "formresults" then
