ASP Component

Hi,

Has somebody translated the IScriptingContect object from C to Delphi (3.0). I try to write asp components in Delphi and use the OnStartPage to get the object, so have somebody translated the header.

Best Regards

Hi chrb,

it is not neccessary to translate the header files. Just declare the OnStartPage like
function OnStartPage(AScriptingContext: OleVariant): Integer;
in your type library. Also declare the variables you get from the scripting context object as Variant and just use them !
I created an ASP extension in Delphi 2 and it worked this way.

Hope this helps,

Hi,

Thanks you for your answear, but...
The OleVariant dosn't exist in Delphi 2 (or I can't find it), it exist in Delphi 3. I will be very happy if you could give me an example which use the Server.MapPath or Response.Write object.
Thanks!

Yo,

I adjusted the interface declaration to Delphi 3. If you can use Delphi 2 for your ASP development, here is a working code. You could also use it in Delphi 3, but I do not want to post a bunch of code that the Delphi 3-Wizards are creating automaticaly. The basic adjustments are the declarations in the dispatch interface and private members of TASPTest, set them to OleVariant accordingly.

1. Project file

// to be aspcomp.dpr
library aspcomp;

uses
  SysUtils,
  Classes,
  OLEAuto,
  asptest in 'asptest.pas';

exports
  DllGetClassObject, DllCanUnloadNow, DllRegisterServer, DllUnregisterServer;
begin
end.

------------------------------

2. Core-object unit

// to be asptest.pas
unit asptest;

interface

uses
  OleAuto;

type
  TASPTest = class(TAutoObject)
  private
    { Private declarations }
    Application,
    Request,
    Response,
    Server,
    Session     : Variant;
  automated
    { Automated declarations }
    function TestComponent: LongInt;
    { ASP page event methods }
    function OnStartPage(AScriptingContext : Variant): LongInt;
    function OnEndPage: LongInt;
  end;

implementation

uses Windows, SysUtils;

procedure RegisterTASPTest;
const
  AutoClassInfo: TAutoClassInfo = (
    AutoClass: TASPTest;
    ProgID: 'aspcomp.TASPTest';
    ClassID: '{6879D0B0-785F-11D1-A022-0000E8A3B5E6}';
    Description: 'ASP test component in Delphi 2';
    Instancing: acMultiInstance);
begin
  Automation.RegisterClass(AutoClassInfo);
end;

function TASPTest.TestComponent: LongInt;
var FncResult : Variant;
begin
  Result := S_OK;
  try
    FncResult := Server.URLEncode('<This: is encoded !>');
    Response.write('URL Encoding : ' + FncResult + '<BR>');
    FncResult := Session.TimeOut;
    Response.write('Session timeout set to : ' + IntToStr(VarAsType(FncResult, varInteger)) + '<BR>');
  except
    // any additional error handling (e.g. detailed message)
    // can be done here
    Result := E_FAIL;
    raise;
  end;
end;

function TASPTest.OnStartPage(AScriptingContext : Variant): LongInt;
begin
  Result := S_OK;
  try
    Application := AScriptingContext.Application;
    Request := AScriptingContext.Request;
    Response := AScriptingContext.Response;
    Server := AScriptingContext.Server;
    Session := AScriptingContext.Session;
    Response.write('Loaded<BR>');
  except
    Result := E_FAIL;
  end;
end;

function TASPTest.OnEndPage: LongInt;
begin
  Result := S_OK;
end;

initialization
  RegisterTASPTest;
end.

------------------------------

3. ASP test file

<!-- to be asptest.asp in a web-server executeable directory-->
<HTML>
<HEAD>
<TITLE>aspcomp.TASPTest component test page</TITLE>
</HEAD>
<%
Set TestObject = Server.CreateObject("aspcomp.TASPTest")

response.write("Begin Test<BR>")
response.write("aspcomp.TASPTest.TestComponent returns : " & TestObject.TestComponent & "<BR>")
response.write("End Test<BR>")

Set TestObject = nothing

%>
</HTML>

------------------------------

Build the dll, register it with regsvr32, browse to the asptest.asp page and have fun !
