Post your question to a community of 469,352 developers. It's quick & easy.

Can I request the filename that was loaded?

Greetings again,

Thanks for all the great help so far.

One of the things I do is do my testing on an alternate address, then
store the file as the regular address after it tests correctly, but
since I might mention the test page in various forums when I ask
questions, I leave it uploaded just in case someone later sees the link
and clicks it.

So far, my kludgy way of handling it is to have a variable called
"thispage" and set it equal to the page I'm working on, so when it
links to itself, it links back to the page in question.

Is there a way of automatically testing for this value instead of
manually defining it? I tried a quick Google search, but I didn't know
what to call it. I assume it might be in the same general collection as
the HTTP_REFERER item.

Thanks.

John

Are these any use?

'BaseURL - http:/www.mysite.com
BaseURL="http://" & Request.ServerVariables("HTTP_HOST")

'TopURL - /subdir1/subdir2/default.asp
TopURL = Request.ServerVariables("URL")

tmp1=split(TopURL,"/")
tmp2=len(tmp1(ubound(tmp1,1)))

'PageFileName - default.asp
PageFileName=right(TopURL,tmp2)

'ShortPath - /subdir1/subdir2/
ShortPath=left(TopURL,len(TopURL)-tmp2)

Thanks, Giles,

PageFileName was EXACTLY what I wanted.

If you enjoy mazes, be sure to download the maze you find here:

That's the page that your code will save me a few minutes of future
editing.
