Hi :-)

I have experimented with including asp files, as a javascript file.

Like

<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript" src="file.asp">
</script>

The the file.asp should generate the javascript.
It works for me, but people get error in Internet Explore 4.72. Is this only because of the stupid errors in Explore or is wrong to use anything else then .js extension as a javascript file ?

You could add the .js extension to the IIS Application Mappings and have asp.dll parse .js files, like it does .asp, before it sends the results to the client. This should take care of any issues with any browser. Since if I remember right, Netscape browsers only accept .js files for external JavaScript files.

Here's how to do it:
1. Open Internet Services Manager.
2. Right-click the Web server, and choose Properties from the context menu.
3. Master Properties
4. Select WWW Service | Edit | HomeDirectory | Configuration

From there you should see:

.asp C:\WINNT\System32\inetsrv\asp.dll GET,HEAD,POST,TRACE

ADD one for .js files that is:

.js C:\WINNT\System32\inetsrv\asp.dll GET,HEAD,POST,TRACE

If you are using the above technique to protect your client-side JavaScript from being read by users, then remember not only check the HTTP_REFERER header but also to disable caching on the browser so the user can't view the .js file from their Temporary Internet Files folder either.

I'd use the following:

<%
Response.Expires = 60
Response.Expiresabsolute = Now() - 1
Response.AddHeader "pragma","no-cache"
Response.AddHeader "cache-control","private"
Response.CacheControl = "no-cache"
%>

Hope it helps,
