What is this? <img src="{$ ImagesDir}/photo.gif">

What is this? <img src="{$ ImagesDir}/photo.gif">

I KNOW what an HTML image tag looks like. But what do you call that in the
file source? Is it like a virtual directory in IIS? It's some type of
variable obviously, but can somebody tell me what it's called so I can
research how it works? thanks.

Was this formerly a php page or something? A php var would look like that
(but without the space after the $). Or maybe a .pl page. It could be
anything.

YES, I took this out of a PHP page. However, I thought I saw the same type
of thing in an ASP page using VBScript several years ago. Can something
like this be done in VBScript ASP?

Yes, VB Script supports variables. ;]
Somewhere in some php code, that is defined. It could be in an include
file, in that page, or in the php.ini file. There's isn't an asp.ini file
equivalent, but you can use things like application variables or includes to
include a global value in all of your pages. I guess you could kinda say
that php has one-up here, but it's all in how you look at it. If you define
500 variables in your php.ini, they'll be there for all pages unnecessarily.
This is a similar waste of resources in the way that adovbs.inc is, but at
least with that, you include it when and where you want.

I know about application and session variables, and how to initialize in
global.asa, but is there a way to use VBS variables in this format? {$
someVar}

I thought I saw this before, but I could be wrong.

Yes, it might look like this :

<img src="<%= ImagesDir %>/photo.gif">

No. Here's from the VBScript docs:

Naming Restrictions
Variable names follow the standard rules for naming anything in VBScript. A
variable name:

a.. Must begin with an alphabetic character.
b.. Cannot contain an embedded period.
c.. Must not exceed 255 characters.
d.. Must be unique in the scope in which it is declared.

In ASP/VBScript, this would look more like:

<img src="<%=ImagesD ir%>/photo.gif">

Hope this helps.

My guess is that someone generated that page by transforming XML with XSLT,
but had an error in their XSLT somewhere. In XSLT you can declare a
variable and then insert its value where you need it with {$variablename} .
Maybe the space between $ and ImagesDir screwed it up.

Hello, I'm trying to do the above in order to process an image and return the result to an html image control.

Hi everyone, I've got a question about what makes the "img" element's width/height attributes valid HTML or XHTML.
