Is it possible to "split" C# code and writing HTML code between the parts, so I don't have to use Response.Write()? Like in this classic ASP sample:

<% If Banana = Fruit Then %>
HTML code here.
<% End If %>

Instead of

<%
If Banana = Fruit Then

  Response.Write("HTML code here.")

End If
%>

Please give me a/some sample/samples of the code that can be used.

Hello,

Here is what you are looking for:

<%
Dim fruit As string = "Banana"
if fruit = "Banana" then
%>
Banana
<%
else
%>
Other
<%end if%>

But remember if you try to make ASP.Net as ASP, then you do not really get all of its power and you will see the results as we see in ASP pages that ends with endless <%%> and if end if structure. Instead go with the code behind technique that is far better than we usually used to do in ASP earlier.

Best, Nauman

think OO, not scripting. there's no reason you need to embed inline vb.net code. use the code behind to cleanly separate the html & .net code.

a good way to do what you're asking is to conditionally set the text property of a label:

.aspx page:

...
<asp:label runat="server" id="lblFruit" />
...


.aspx.vb page:
' in your page_load method:

if fruit.ToLower().Trim() = "banana" then
   lblFruit.Text = "this is a banana"
else
   lblFruit.Text = "not a banana"
end if

i know... old habits die hard, but you'll make it a lot easier on yourself if you try to learn .net the right way, not converting existing asp code to asp.net.

I wasn't looking for what that If, Else code is in ASP.NET. This is an example of what I want:

<script runat="server">
      void Page_Load(Object Sender, EventArgs e) {
            switch (Fruit) {
                  case Banana :

SOME WAY TO TYPE HTML CODE HERE (WITHOUT USING Response.Write())

                  break;
            }
      }
</script>

use a control... a panel is a good one. you can dynamically create and add other controls (a literal for instance) to a panel. or if you're trying to dynamically add javascript, theres the attributes property
