Response.Redirect in Classic ASP

Response Object and HTML Encoding

The response object is often used in conjunction with various kinds of coding schemes. No discussion of response would be complete without a discussion of how to “handle” or “escape” special characters. This sample script demonstrates common conversion and transformation commands that make sense to use with the response.write command:

<title>Response object</title>
</head><body bgcolor="#FFFFFF">
' The response object can be used to write text
' but sometimes some functions must be used to transform
' the text instead of sending as is to the browser

response.write "<B>Hyperion</b> by <I>Dan Simmons</i> is a great novel"
response.write "<p>"
response.write server.htmlencode("<B>Hyperion</b> by <I>Dan Simmons</i> is a great novel")
response.write "<p>"

response.write "Joe Smith & Hilda = a team"
response.write "<p>"
response.write server.URLencode("Joe Smith & Hilda = a team")


Response Object – Redirects

The response object can be used to decide what page to send a user to next. Specifically the response.redirect method will work in that capacity. We have made a script formjump.asp that takes advantage of this.

</head><body bgcolor="#FFFFFF">
<form action="FormJumpRespond.asp" method="get">
<SELECT NAME="wheretogo">
<OPTION value="news">Daily News</OPTION>
<OPTION value="docs">ASP IIS3 Roadmap/Docs</OPTION>
<OPTION value="main">MainPage of</OPTION>
<OPTION value="sample">IIS 3 Sample ASP scripts</OPTION>
<input type=submit value="Choose Destination">
The responder that reacts to this form is:

<body bgcolor="#FFFFFF">
' My ASP program that redirects to URL
Select Case where
case "main"
response.redirect thisURL & "/"
case "samples"
response.redirect thisURL & "/aspsamp/samples/samples.htm"
case "docs"
response.redirect thisURL & "/iasdocs/aspdocs/roadmap.asp"
case "news"
response.redirect ""
case "fun"
response.redirect ""
End Select
response.write "All dressed up and I don't know where to go<br>"
response.write "I recommend --> " & "<br>"
response.write server.htmlencode(thisURL & "/learn/test/res2.asp?where=fun") & "<br>"
response.write "for a good laugh!" & "<P>"
