This is the third in a series of articles that explore how to migrate classic ASP web sites to the ASP.NET Web Pages framework. I covered Razor syntax and data access in the previous articles. This article shows how to deal with reusable code that typically inhabits include files in classic ASP.

The first article in this series explored the differences (and similarities) between classic ASP inline syntax and Razor syntax, the templating technology behind ASP.NET Razor Web Pages. The work required so far to port intermixed HTML and simple conditional and selection statements across from classic ASP to Razor didn't require a lot of effort. That is about to change in this article as I look at data access.

Include files within classic ASP are about the only way to achieve some measure of code-reuse within frameworks that offer little or nothing by way of composition or inheritance. Judging by the number of questions in forums, there are still a lot of people moving across from classic ASP who are puzzled as to how to approach replacing include files within ASP.NET. A number of articles illustrate individually how to do so for site-wide layout reasons, including widgets, reusing global functions, or actually including the content of a file. However, I haven't been able to find one resource that brings all these together, hence the purpose of this article.

My simple article on Ajax with Classic ASP is one of the most popular on this site. So I thought it's about time I updated it to show how to use jQuery to Ajaxify a Classic ASP page. Since I did that, the jQuery version became even more popular but needed to be brought up to date. This latest version uses a couple of suggestions that have been provided by commentors to improve the code. I have also added a download which contains all the code needed to run the samples.

As an ardent Dreamweaver user for classic ASP, I used to debug my scripts with a plethora of Response.Write and Response.End statements, outputting the values of various values to the browser to check that logic was working as intended. However, I recently discovered how to use the VS 2005 debugger to make debugging classic ASP (almost) a joy.

The following code will enumerate the tables and their properties, together with the queries in an Access database. Saved SELECT queries are referenced using the Views collection, and INSERT, UPDATE and DELETE queries are referenced from the Procedures collection.

Regular Expressions provide a much more powerful and efficient way of manipulating strings of text than the use of a variety of standard string functions. They have a reputation of being cryptic and difficult to learn, but are actually quite easy to learn and use.

You don't need MS Access installed on your computer to create a database file for your ASP web site. Using ADOX and some data definition language allows you to produce an mdb file programmatically.
