From The Editor
Mike Prestwood

This edition, March 2010, is coming out late in the month. I held up sending it because we are trying to improve layout and content of our monthly eMag. Our goal is to deliver a better free product to you. We appreciate you subscribing and we want to make sure our eMag is of interest to you and contains useful information and links. You'll notice this month's eMag has a simpler look and feel to it and you'll see many more improvements like this over the next few months.

We also know that our servers lately have, at times, been slow. Right now we are migrating to our viaVerio hosting farm (same servers we use with our hosting clients). We will be moving in the next month or so to a new server. Until then, thank you for putting up with our occasionally slow website.

Again, thank you for subscribing to our monthly eMag.

Code Snippet of the Month

In ASP, using ADO, you use RecordSet.AddNew to add a new record, Recordset.Update to post the record, and RecordSet.Delete to delete it. To edit a record, you open the RecordSet using an editable cursor.

The following code snippet adds a record to a given editable RecordSet with FullName and Created fields:

objRS.Fields("FullName") = "Barack Obama"
objRS.Fields("Created")  = Now

Answer: VBScript is short for Visual Basic Scripting. VBScript brings scripting to a wide variety of environments, including Web client scripting in Microsoft Internet Explorer and Web server scripting in Microsoft Internet Information Service.

Tip of the Month

Short-circuit evaluation is a feature of most languages where once an evaluation evaluates to False, the compiler evaluates the whole expression to False, exits and moves on to the next code execution line. The ASP Classic if statement does not support short-circuit evaluation but you can mimic it. Use either an if..else if..else if statement or nested if statements. ASP code that makes use of this technique is frequenlty clearer and easier to maintain than the short-circuit equivalent.
