I'm trying to make a dynamic replacement for shoppage_header.html and shoppage_trailer.html (shoppage_header.asp and shoppage_trailer respectively).

Has anyone else implemented something like this successfully?

My approach similar to the solution given when someone asked about putting the output of shopdisplaycategories.asp etc in a table - I've really just designed a page that works, cut the top half of the code and saved it as shoppage_header.asp, and the rest of the code becomes shoppage_trailer.asp. Also, I made changes to shop$db to reference these two .asp files.

The main problem I seem to be having is that if the recordsets are opened before the <head> tag in shoppage_header.asp then they don't seem to be available in shoppage_trailer.asp.

Actually... let me give you the error message:

Error Type:
Microsoft VBScript runtime (0x800A01A8)
Object required: ''
/mjhb/shopping/shoppage_trailer.asp, line 26


... and line 26 from shoppage_trailer.asp:

While ((Repeat1__numRows <> 0) AND (NOT Recordset2.EOF))

Repeat1__numRows is a variable set up in shoppage_header.asp

Recordset2 is also set up in shoppage_header.asp

My feeling is that it's something to do with the Repeat1__numRows returning a null value (error message above wasn't very descriptive) because I've got a feeling it would be a different error message if Recordset2.EOF was returning a null.

So I'm just wondering if anyone else has done this successfully, '#include'-ing .asp files for the headers and trailers, and how you got around it. I'm sure it's just a line of code that I have forgotten somewhere...

Thanks!

JL

did you ever get the seperate headers to work

quote:

I created separate shopheader and shoptrailer files and defined them in shop$db.asp

Sub ShopPageHeader
%>
<!-- #include file="shoppage_header.htm" -->
<%
end sub
Sub ShopPageTrailer
%>
<!-- #include file="shoppage_trailer.htm" -->
<%
end sub
Sub AdminPageTrailer
%>
<!-- #include file="shopadmin_trailer.htm" -->
<%
end sub
Sub AdminPageHeader
%>
<!-- #include file="shopadmin_header.htm" -->
<%
end sub
Sub ShopPageHeader2
%>
<!-- #include file="shoppage_header2.htm" -->
<%
end sub
Sub ShopPageTrailer2
%>
<!-- #include file="shoppage_trailer2.htm" -->
<%
end sub
Sub ShopPageHeadern
%>
<!-- #include file="shoppage_headern.htm" -->
<%
end sub
Sub ShopPageTrailern
%>
<!-- #include file="shoppage_trailern.htm" -->

Then, I specified in my code on the pages where those headers and trailers needed to display:

ShopPageHeadern ' Page header for shop
CategoryHeader ' category header on this page
Showcategories ' format categories on this page
ShopPageTrailern ' shop page trailer

I also want to create dynamic headers that go one step further and are different for each category -- anyone have ideas on how to do that?

Thanks!

Thanks for your replies. Actually, this is like what I wanted to do too.

ACTUALLY....

I don't have time to look it up right now, but I think haktil's page has something similar, with his breadcrumbs feature. I'll check it out later, but you might like to check it out yourself in the mean time.
