hi,<BR>i am trying to create a db-driven asp messageboard and want to use javaScript for posting data validation. i know i can create separate pages depending on &#060;NOSCRIPT&#062; tag, however, i want to allow the user to enable js and reload the page. i tried embedding a vbscript function call within the &#060;NOSCRIPT&#062; tag, but for some reason the variable always changed back..<BR>sub _NoJXript()<BR> response.write "function called"<BR> mNoScript=true<BR>end sub<BR><BR>even if the js was enabled, it reset the variable mNoScript.<BR><BR>then i thought i could create the object:<BR>set userBrowser.CreateObject("MSWC.BrowserType")<BR><B R>if userBrowser.JavaScript=true then<BR> mNoScript=false<BR>else<BR> mNoScript=true<BR>end if<BR><BR>of course, this only works for IE.<BR>I know i can use server-vbscript to validate, but is this heavy on the server? i assume this messaboard uses server script...<BR>If anyone has any ideas, please post.<BR>thanks,<BR>steve<BR>
