Hello,

I have a Web page called "month.asp".  I am wanting to list the current month and Year (i.e Septemeber, 2004).  Then I will want to write it.  Then, next to the month name will be two graphic arrows that will allow a user to navigate to the previous month or to the next month while staying on "month.asp".

This is not a calendar.  I am just looking to navigate through the months.

Can you please help with a code example?

Thank you in advance.

Dim sDate
Dim sCurrMonth
Dim sForward
Dim sBack
Dim sBackMonthVal, sForwardMonthVal
sBack = ""

if len(trim(request("forward")))>0 then
  sForward = request("forward")

much cleaner version:

<%
Dim sDate
Dim sCurrMonth
Dim sBackMonthVal
Dim sForwardMonthVal

sDisplayMonth = ""
sDate         = date()
sCurrMonth    = Month(date())

if len(request("currmonth"))>0 then
  sCurrMonth = request("currmonth")
end if

if sDisplayMonth="" then
  sDisplayMonth = sCurrMonth
end if

if sDisplayMonth<1 then
  sDisplayMonth=12
end if

if sDisplayMonth>12 then
  sDisplayMonth=1
end if

sBackMonthVal = sCurrMonth-1
sForwardMonthVal = sCurrMonth+1
if sBackMonthVal<1 then sBackMonthVal=12
if sForwardMonthVal>12 then sForwardMonthVal=1

%>
<a href="month.asp?currmonth=<%=sBackMonthVal%>"> <-- </a><%=MonthName(sDisplayMonth)%><a href="month.asp?currmonth=<%=sForwardMonthVal%>"> --> </a>

peh803,

This is excellent.  One other thing if you don't mind.  Is it possible to also get the year?  So, when a user navigates from month to month a parameter is passed indicating the year.  Then, when to gets to January the year changes to the next year.


THanks a lot.

hm, okay, I should be able to include that (although it wasn't part of the original specifications....).

Give me a minute.  

Also, I'd be glad to accept more points for the additional question (2 for 1) :)

Glad you're happy so far,
