the code written below is for calculating the number of days remain for a particular event based on the specific local time i.e. time in new york or time in london.

Ok so it's just this line:
var servertimestrin g=(servermode== "server-php")? '<? print date("F d, Y H:i:s", time())?>' : (servermode=="s erver-ssi")? '<!--#config timefmt="%B %d, %Y %H:%M:%S"--><!--#echo var="DATE_LOCAL " -->' : '<%= Now() %>'

I'm not sure what that line does, just print the time in a specific format?

If that's the only line of PhP code that has to be converted to ASP.NET then you would probably just do something like:

var servertimestrin g=(servermode== "server-php")? '<%= theDate.ToStrin g("dd/yyyy HH:mm:ss") %> : (servermode=="s erver-ssi")?'<%= Now() %>'

Mind you this line doesn't make sense to me..... but I think you get the point.

Hm, I don't see why you need either language. You're already using SSI, so why not use it in place of the PHP / ASP.NET?

but when I run this code it gives following error
Compiler Error Message: CS0103: The name 'Now' does not exist in the current context

so what i need to change in this code to run it correctly.
Nov 26 '09 #7

what is theDate.ToStrin g here means where you have defined this?
Nov 26 '09 #8
9,735 Recognized Expert Moderator Expert
"theDate" is a DateTime variable that contains the date.
theDate.ToStrin g returns the string version of the date so that it can be displayed in a way that makes sense to people (dates are stored as numbers usually)

In an error condition the function was supposed to raise exception type A, but with 2.6 it raised type B, and further, there was no string value for the exception.
