ASP variable help in compiled DLL

Ok, I'm attempting to compile my ASP scripts into a component.

However, I've run into a problem... I have an include file called siteSetting.asp that holds all of the variables specific to that website.  It includes the number of records to display per page, row colors, etc. etc. etc... How can I use those variables within the functions in my compiled DLL?  I can't seem to get it to work, and I haven't a clue as to what to search for!

TIA

look try to save those variables in the web.config file instead of using a .ASP file
add this section to your web.config File :

  <appSettings>
    <add key="SqlCommand1.CommandText" value="SELECT * from Employee;" />
    <add key="RecordDisplayPerPage" value="20" />
    <add key="AdminPWD" value="Xzuf11" />
    <add key="AdminTextClr" value="BLUE" />
  </appSettings>

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Create properties in your DLL and pass that values into your DLL from your configuration asp page.

I've done that, but is there any other way to do it?

That would be the best way to approach it.  I can't think of anything more direct.  Other option would be to put these configurations in a database or other like storage that you could then access directly from your ASP pages, or from your DLL.

Ok, I've figured out a workaround.

First, I made an entire include that passess all of the values to corresponding properties in the DLL. Then, I made the values for all of those parameters (on the previous include) equal to the values in the ASP page; the constants.  That way, there is only one page that controls the variables for the entire site.  

Thanks guys for all your help and suggestions!
