I see that NAVECHA has answered a query on this one but I got a little lost.

I have a simple navigation include file - ET2Nav.asp
Quote
<A href="et2Ware.asp">Warehousing & Storage </A>:
 <A href="et2vip.asp">VIP customers : </A>
 <A href="et2trans.asp">Transport Broking:</A>
  <A href="et2contact.asp">contact us</A>
Unquote
and what I am trying to do is ensure that when the Warehousing & Storage page - et2Ware.asp - opens up, the link to Warehousing and Storage does not show onthe nav bar.
Is that possible, or can it be highlighted?

kind regards

Here is one method you mayb have to modify it but this should get you started.

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">

<html>
<head>
      <title>Untitled</title>
      
<%

Function adjMenu(strLink)

If strLink = request.servervariables("url") Then
      response.write("style='visibility: hidden;'")
End If

End Function


%>
      
</head>

<body >

<A href="et2Ware.asp" <%adjMenu("/et2Ware.asp")%>>Warehousing & Storage </A>:
 <A href="et2vip.asp" <%adjMenu("/et2vip.asp")%>>VIP customers : </A>
 <A href="et2trans.asp" <%adjMenu("/et2trans.asp")%>>Transport Broking:</A>
  <A href="et2contact.asp" <%adjMenu("/et2contact.asp")%>>contact us</A>


</body>
</html>

Thanks dukestaTAI
The links work but they still all show up - so ther is no difference from the original script.

Run this page and tell me what it says for URL: on the page.


<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">

<html>
<head>
     <title>Untitled</title>
     
<%

Function adjMenu(strLink)

If strLink = request.servervariables("url") Then
     response.write("style='visibility: hidden;'")
End If

End Function


%>
     
</head>

<body >

<h1>URL:</h1><%=request.servervariables("url")%>

<A href="et2Ware.asp" <%adjMenu("/et2Ware.asp")%>>Warehousing & Storage </A>:
 <A href="et2vip.asp" <%adjMenu("/et2vip.asp")%>>VIP customers : </A>
 <A href="et2trans.asp" <%adjMenu("/et2trans.asp")%>>Transport Broking:</A>

Why Off-Site Backups Are The Only Way To Go

You are probably backing up your data—but how and where? Ransomware is on the rise and there are variants that specifically target backups. Read on to discover why off-site is the way to go.

Since you are working with ASP, I would suggest an ASP solution.

In the menu include file, you may determine which page is loaded using the server variable, "SCRIPT_NAME" You can then test for the current page and not write it's menu link (or highlight it, etc.)

See my live example at http://www.rodsdot.com/ee/aspConditionalMenuLinks1.asp

ASP code for an example menu include file.

<%
' a variable to hold the currently loaded ASP page name.
Dim pageName

' get the page name from the server
pageName = Request.ServerVariables("SCRIPT_NAME")

' remove any preceding path
pageName = Mid(pageName, InStrRev(pageName,"/")+1)

' write a link only if it is NOT to this page.
if pageName <> "aspConditionalMenuLinks1.asp" then
      response.write "<a title=""ASP Conditional Menu Links Example Page 1"" href=""aspConditionalMenuLinks1.asp"">ASP Conditional Menu Links 1</a>&nbsp;|&nbsp;"
end if
if pageName <> "aspConditionalMenuLinks2.asp" then      
      response.write "<a title=""ASP Conditional Menu Links Example Page 2"" href=""aspConditionalMenuLinks2.asp"">ASP Conditional Menu Links 2</a>&nbsp;|&nbsp;"
end if
if pageName <> "aspConditionalMenuLinks3.asp" then      
      response.write "<a title=""ASP Conditional Menu Links Example Page 3"" href=""aspConditionalMenuLinks3.asp"">ASP Conditional Menu Links 3</a>"
end if
%>

You can improve on my code, but this should show you what is possible.

Regards,
Rod
