For a better response time, we recommend that you select more than one zone.

what exactly are you asking?
If this same thing can be accomplished in ASP? Sure it can, but with use of AJAX would help.

Is that what you are asking?



yes, if asking a question on this site, the popup is used if only one zone is selected.

Is there a sample code for the classic asp?  thanks

ASP is not really what you need, it is more along the lines of possibly Javascript
That will do this.
I tried to do a quick search through google but was not successful in finding anything.

Have the question re-zoned to have
Added to the zones, as I think that is going to be your best bet in getting this answered quickly.

I'm not sure what that last bit of script has to do with the original question?

Your original question was best answered by leakim's snippet of code.

Carrzkiss is right - while you CAN use classic ASP, it doesn't really have any influence on what you're trying to do. The thing you're trying to do is all about Javascript, and you can put Javascript on any web page, whether it was plain HTML, or ASP, or PHP, or whatever. Javascript is the thing that can "see" the web page and interact with it, so it can count the number of zones that have been picked and tell you that you should pick more. Leakim's code does that.
