browser check using ASP

Hi All

I currently use a javascript routine to check what browser the user is
using, but I'm trying to replace my client side code for server side as much
as I can.

Does anybody have a good (and tight) routine to check what the browser is,
eg IE, Netscape, FireFox, Safari, etc?

Thanks

Laphan

Question for the group The authentication system for the site Im working on seems to function properly and all is good. A session keeps track of everything and a cookie is used to accept or deny access... sounds as it should be I hope. Then when all is done logging out destroys everything and the pages are no longer accessable. Good so far. But two things come to mind: one is preventing multiple logins of the user/password. The...

On a page optimised for IE, I'd like to check if the browser type is other than IE, so I can direct them to another page. How can I modify the code below to redirect to indextext.asp if they aren't using IE? I've tried changing the = for <>, but get a syntax error. Thanks USER_AGENT = Request.ServerVariables("HTTP_USER_AGENT") IS_IE = InStr(USER_AGENT,"MSIE")

I wasn't sure where to post this so I'm sorry if this is the wrong place. But I would like to know what some of the differences are between client-side and server-side browser sniffing. I'm aware the client-side stops certain errors being transmitted so saves on bandwidth and server-side my catch errors that are missed on the client-side. Anything else would be great. Thanks.

How do you get the height of the client browser in IE? Both document.body.clientHeight and document.body.offsetHeight return the height of the document. If the page is long and there's a vertical scrollbar, you get the height of the entire document, screwing up any chance of centering a window in the browser using these values. Is there a way to get the height of the actual browser window and not the entire page height? Thanks.

Hi all I am very new to ASP.Net. I am trying to create a sniffer for our program. We want our users to click our sniffer and hopefully the sniffer will check their computer against our requirements. I would like to ask experts like you to see which items are actually doable with ASP.Net. Below I listed all of the items we are looking for but I can understand if some of the items are impossible to check/sniff. We would like to create a sniffer...

In a recent thread in this group, I said that in some cases object detection and feature tests weren't sufficient in the development of cross-browser applications, and that there were situations where you could improve the application by detecting the browser vendor/version. Some of the posters here disagreed. Since then, I've had to deal with a few of these cases; some of them could be rewritten to use object detection, and some couldn't....

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
