convert VBScript pages to JavaScript

Posted on 2004-10-21
Last Modified: 2010-04-07
I started developing a site in html code. I later decided to use mostly APS JavaScript, but I inadvently setup the site management for the testing server as VBScript. I have run into several problems, especially with the connection files like 'connTest.asp'. I then discovered that I had setup the testing server incorrectly as APS VBScript and all my .asp files have VBScript code instead of JavaScript code. Is there any way to convert the 'site' (i.e. multiple .asp files) from VBScript to JavaScript? I haven't been unable to find any extensions or help on the subject.

    Hi Jim.

    Depending on which version of Dreamweaver you're using, you should be able to use the "Manage Sites" function to make the change you're looking for, if indeed, I understand your question.

    From the top menu, choose:
    Site > Manage Sites > Select the site > Edit >

    Once in that far, again, depending on the version, you'll be able to change the "server technology" setting from ASP (VBScript) to JavaScript.

    I think this is what you might be looking for.
    Hope that's helpful.

    Not that I know off.
    Better stay with one Language. by the way you mean ASP VBSCRIPT not APS VBScript.

    Choose VbScript and work with it, or keep on working with the existing Langauge.Conversation is not possible, only if you knew both of these languages then you could've change it from the source Code.
