Hello Support,

While customizing vpasp, in the file shopcustomer.asp (validateData routine) here is the piece of code:

strPassword1 = Request.Form("strPassword1")
strPassword2 = Request.Form("strPassword2")
strgiftcertificate = request("strgiftcertificate")
strCoupon = request("strcoupon")
blnMailList = request("blnMaillist")

Last 3 lines are wrong and you better check all ValidateData routines.

I'm wondering if you people have QA or your customers are gunea pigs and do QA.

You have 6 posts on this forum. Not fair on your part to imply that the VPASP folks are somehow second-rate. Once you have been around awhile, you will recognize the fact that VPASP support is exceedingly conscientious in responding to problems/issues, and that a cart that is constantly improving will have unforseen code errors (assuming you are accurate regarding the code).

Do they have gunea pigs in Australia?? I thought they just had those jumpy-things with the big feet & big ears & long nose -- and a nasty attitude.

No, wait... that's my mother in law...

as far as I know, "request" will have exactly the same effect/syntax as "request.form" at the point where that code's being run; it might not be perfectly tidy to do that coding-wise, but it'll still work fine.

I'm not 100% sure of the fall-through logic for a request without the extra ".querystring" or ".form" but I think it just uses ".form" by default when nothing's specified.

Personally I always specify .querystring or .form and code-up my own fall-through logic which is relevant to the context, but I don't think vpasp's code will cause any problems; it's just a case of tidyness.

I'm not sure about guinea pigs either, but they do have a really cute little rare animal called a bilby -

Didn't mean to insult your mother in law, or anybody else.
Assuming I'm accurate - it's a fact, open this file and check ValidateData routine. Check other ValidateData routine as well.
Unfortunatly, It's not the only thing I ran into. Not saying a bad word about the package, espacially for the money.
Do not want to look snobby but this sort of things could be avoided.

Request object contains the following collections:

Which one you reffer to? It may accidently work, most likely not.

The syntax is:

All request object variables can be accessed directly by calling Request(variable) without the collection name. In this case, the Web server searches the collections in the following order:
