ASP Classic and .Net Components

Hello,

I have just moved an ASP Classic website to a new hosting company that has a
number of .NET components available. The website works fine after the move
with one exception. We were creating PDFs using ASPPDF for ASP but now it
looks like only ABCPDF.NET is available.

My knowledge of ASP.NET is very limited at this time and I am planning on
converting the site to ASP.NET soon but I really need to get the PDF working
as soon as I can.

Is any of the following possible...

1) "wrap" the ASPPDF com control so I can use it at the new hosting company
as a workaround for now? This would be the easiest for me as I would not need
to change the asp classic code (maybe a little). Maybe place the asppdf com
control in the .bin directory? The control does need registered in it's
current form.

2) access the ABCPDF.NET component from a classic asp page?

3) write the pdf code in ASP.NET and then call that code from an ASP Classic
page? If I write this as a web service can I call the web service from an ASP
Classic page? I would need to pass a parameter, maybe two parameters to the
pdf code

4) I am open to any suggestion other then migrate the website to asp.net at
the moment as I need to get this up and working in the next few days if
possible.

If you have any thoughts on this subject please let me know. (code samples
would be wonderful!!)

Cheers,
Rhek

No.

No.

Yes.

Then use #3.

ASP and ASP.NET code can live happily together. They cannot share
sessions, but you can pass variables with a query just fine.

Hi From what I understand, you can pass arrays from classic ASP to .NET using interop, but you have to change the type of the.NET parameter to object. This seems to be because classic ASP passes a variant containing an array, and interop expects a parameter of type object if you are passing a variant (you are expected to cast it to the correct type in your code). I'd like to find a way of passing arrays so that you don't need to change...

Hi All, I have an applicaiton architecture that I have adopted and need a little guidance.

I can't find out if Microsoft supports "Classic" asp or if they only support asp.net? I'm not really sure what support means in either context, really, except that they tell customers not to use ASP classic any more or if the life cycle of ASP classic is over. I am evaluating a product and I am not sure I want to recommend an ASP classic product that should be migrated by now (I think anyway). Guidance and thoughts are appreciated. ...

We are extending a web application written in classic ASP long time ago. We will add more components to this web application in ASP.NET 2.0. To use the web application, our web users will have to log in with their user name and password. Well, instead of adding components to the existing classic ASP web application, we could have just put the extended components into a new web application. But then this would require them to log...

I have a system written in classic asp and a lot of Javascript. Due to its performance and security issue, we decided to re-write this big module. I heard that C/C++ has a better support in performance and security (relatively) but here comes my questions: 1. Can ASP talk to C/C++? Because from my experience I use C/C++ mainly for application console. 2. If I want to exclude most of the Javascript and use other programming language...

My question is simple: How does one debug ASP Classic with Microsoft Visual Web Developer Express 2005 ("VWD")? Looming in the back of anyone's mind when you see a posting like this on any newsgroup is "didn't this guy read the docs?" Frankly, I "sort of did" a number of times. I feel the days of "things that are intuitively obvious" to use long ago gave way to "things that are clear after a 'Hello World'" example. And those

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".
