in an earlier asp project file I have calls to functions and sub procedures that heretofore were made available via include statements in the following format <!--#include file = "SQLHelp.asp-->

this is no longer legal in the VS 2005 web application project.

I know that I can add the respective asp function or sub that is resident in the above include to the aspx.vb codebehind file - or I think I can - but it is very convenient to be able to add an include and use the tools I need to the respective aspx file I am working with.

Any options consistent with my above thoughts I could use - I heard soemthing about an "include virtual" option - however I have not been able to make that work in the aspx.vb file.

javascript includes within html tags - working okay

looking for advice - clear concise instruction - an example would be good.

thanks if you are willing to help.

You could create a vb file called something like Helper.vb and put it under App_Code.

Then in your code behind you just call Helper.Function1 to get things done.


Heler.vb:
 
Public Class Helper
  
  Public Shared Function Function1() As Integer
    ...
  End Function
 
  Public Shared Function Function2() As Integer
    ...
  End Function
 
End Class

Hi - sorry to not respond to your solution sooner - it actually took me 2 days to understand how to use your "App_Code" reference - it seems to work - I have many more issues to address realtive to my piece of work.  How might I reach you in the future?
