Dealing with Requests in ASPThis tutorial will teach you how to deal with requests in ASP. Requests are often seen in the form of THe ID=x is the request in the URL. This tutorial will show you how to change the location of an iFrame using requests in one file.

Part I - ASP

First, we will use name our identifier "ID". If ID=vine, then the iFrame will point to grapevine.asp. If ID=tut, then the iFrame will point to tutorials.asp, and so on:

Dim pageID
Dim iFrame
pageID =  request("ID")

If pageID = "vine" Then
iFrame = "grapevine.asp"
ElseIF pageID = "tut" Then
iFrame = "tutorials.asp"
ElseIf pageID = "contact" Then
iFrame = "contact.asp"
iFrame = "home.asp"
End If

Part II - HTML + IFrame

Now all we need is an iframe to point to and a variable to insert:

<iframe src="/img_articles/4286/<%=iFrame %>" width=200 height=200 />

And thats it! Frame change on request! (pun intended)
