I need a way to modify the code below so that I can set it via VB with Classic asp. Currently it works with java Script, however users with Java Script Turned off loose the functionality. If I change it to VB and Server Side it should work for those users.

<script type="text/javascript">document.cookie='userLanguage=<%=Session("userLanguage")%>'</script>

You're allready doing so by using Session("userLanguage")

You set it with
Session("userLanguage") = 1043

and

Retrieve it with
strUserLanguage = Session("userLanguage")

To write the cookie type in your webpage-code:

Session("userLanguage") = 1043 'for USA

Else please post a bit more code or explain a bit more in how you're using it.

I have a language selector that works for everyone with Javascript enabled, but for those who have it turned off they can not write the cookie that is read each time a page it loaded to determine the correct language. Below is the code on the current page.

<% If (Instr(Session("pageLanguages"), "US") > 0) Then %>
            <a title="ENGLISH" style="text-decoration:none" href="<%=Request.ServerVariables("SCRIPT_NAME") & nQueryString%>lang=us">
            <img src="images/flags/en.png" alt="ENGLISH">&nbsp;English</a>
            <script type="text/javascript">document.cookie='userLanguage=<%=Session("userLanguage")%>'</script>

I would like to be able to set that document.cookie value using something serverside if possible. I know it will not solve my problem if they have cookies turned off.

To set it:
Response.Cookies("userLanguage")=strSetUserLanguage

To retrieve it:
strRetrieveUserLanguage = Request.Cookies("userLanguage")


You can use the cookies when you want it to be stored for a longer time. When you just want the lifetime of a browser-session, you can use sessions.
