Is there a VBScript way of doing this?

Below is some HTML and Javascript that sends a form with some hard coded values (name="username" id="mod_login_username" value="candidate")

Ideally I would like to be able to run this using VBScript instead, and my parameters are variables stored in a database.

I'm comfortable writing a stored procedure that fetches the username and password from the database. I'm comfortable writing an IF statement that processes the next section of code OR redirects the user....

What I would like to do though, is not use HTML or Javascript, so the "next section of code" ideally would be a VBScript function that replaces the Form Post being called, and allows for the values to be called from the database....

So it would look like -

Stored Procedure
Recordset creation
IF Recordset not Null then
Replacement VBScript (Fot HTML / Javascript)
Else Redirect
End If

Is this possible?

Please advise ---- Many thanks :)
<form method="post" action="http://www.site.co.uk/index.php" name="myForm" id="myForm">
<input type="hidden" name="username" id="mod_login_username" value="candidate" />
<input type="hidden" id="mod_login_password" name="passwd" value="candidate" />
</form>
<!-- now send the form! -->
<script type='text/javascript'>document.myForm.submit();</script>

Perhaps you can use ASP to create a XMLHTTP object to send then request to http://www.site.co.uk/index.php, with login parameters required.

Are you trying to run the checking in a web page or in a SP ?

I think I understand what you're asking - and if I do, yes it's possible - you just need to embed your VBScript in your HTML.


<html>
<head>
</head>
<body>
<%
' ASP code to execute SQL query / stored procedure
IF Recordset not Null then
    ' I forget the syntax for getting data from your recordset, 
    '     but it's not difficult
    theUserName = Recordset("username") 
    theIDdata = Recordset("id")
    theCandidateData = Recordset("candidate")
%>
<form method="post" action="http://www.site.co.uk/index.php" name="myForm" id="myForm">
<input type="hidden" name="<% Response.Write theUserName %>" id="<% Response.Write theIDdata %>" value="<% Response.Write theCandidateData %>" />
<input type="hidden" id="mod_login_password" name="passwd" value="candidate" />
</form>
<%
else
   Response.Write myRedirectURL
end if
%>
</body>
</html>

Thanks, but.... I was actually hoping to organise the form post server side, not client side.... so the page that processes the vbscript is never seen...

Any suggestions? Thank you :)

Not sure what you mean - the ASP is processed server side - only HTML is sent to the client.

If it makes it clearer, this is functionally the same:
IF Recordset not Null then
    ' I forget the syntax for getting data from your recordset, 
    '     but it's not difficult
    theUserName = Recordset("username") 
    theIDdata = Recordset("id")
    theCandidateData = Recordset("candidate")

    Response.Write "<form method='post' action='http://www.site.co.uk/index.php' name='myForm' id='myForm'>
<input type='hidden' name='" & theUserName &"' id='" & theIDdata "' value='" & theCandidateData "' />
<input type='hidden' id='mod_login_password' name='passwd' value='candidate' />
</form>"
else
   Response.Write myRedirectURL
end if

Does that process, submit the form? thanks

BigMonkeyHeadCommented:
No - but if you added the javascript that self-submits after the /form, it would work.

Response.Write "<form method='post' action='http://www.site.co.uk/index.php' name='myForm' id='myForm'>
<input type='hidden' name='" & theUserName &"' id='" & theIDdata "' value='" & theCandidateData "' />
<input type='hidden' id='mod_login_password' name='passwd' value='candidate' />
</form>
<!-- now send the form! -->
<script type='text/javascript'>document.myForm.submit();</script>"
