Languages Focus: Custom Routines

For non-OOP languages, a custom routine is a function, procedure, or subroutine and for pure OOP languages, a custom routine is a class method. Hybrid languages (both non-OOP and OOP) combine both.

ASP Classic Custom Routines

ASP Classic is a non-OOP language with some OOP features. It offers both Subs and Functions. A Sub does not return a value while a Function does. When Subs and Functions are used in a defined class, they become the methods of the class.

Syntax Example:
Sub SayHello(ByVal pName)
  Response.Write "Hello " + pName + "!<br>"
End Sub
 
Function Add(ByRef pN1, ByRef pN2)
  Add = pN1 + pN2
End Function

ASP Classic Sub & function Example

If you define the following sub and funtion:

''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''
' Subs and Functions
''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''
Sub DoSomeCode(ByRef pMessage)
    Response.Write pMessage
End Sub
 
Function GetLastDOW(ADate, AWeekDayConst)
    While Weekday(ADate) <> AWeekDayConst
        ADate = DateAdd("d", -1, ADate)
    Wend
   
    GetLastDOW = ADate
End Function

You can call them. For example:

DoSomeCode "Hello3"
Response.Write "Last Monday was " & GetLastDOW(Date, vbMonday)
