Hi experts

Using asp.net 3.5 with vb.net as the code-behind, has anyone got any examples of a hit counter, I need the counter to increment for each visitor to the site and not every time the page is loaded, hope somebody can help.

When users hit your site, do they have to log in or do you need a counter for the interface page?

I would just like a counter for the interface page, there is no log-in on my site.

Here is an example I found here:
http://www.daniweb.com/web-development/aspnet/threads/5145


PrivateSub Page_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) HandlesMyBase.Load

IfNot Page.IsPostBack Then
Dim nCount As Int32 = 0
nCount = GetCounterValue()
lblTest.Text = nCount.ToString()
EndIf
EndSub

PrivateFunction GetCounterValue() As Int32

Dim ctrFile As StreamReader
Dim ctrFileW As FileStream
Dim sw As StreamWriter
Dim strPath AsString = Server.MapPath("indexcount.txt")
Dim strCounterContents AsString
Dim nCounter As Int32
 
If (File.Exists(strPath)) Then
ctrFile = File.OpenText(strPath)
strCounterContents = ctrFile.ReadLine().ToString()
ctrFile.Close()
nCounter = Convert.ToInt32(strCounterContents)
Else
nCounter = 0
EndIf
nCounter += 1
ctrFileW = New FileStream(strPath, FileMode.OpenOrCreate, FileAccess.Write)
sw = New StreamWriter(ctrFileW)
sw.WriteLine(Convert.ToString(nCounter))
sw.Close()
ctrFileW.Close()
Return nCounter
EndFunction

  
PrivateSub Page_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) HandlesMyBase.Load

IfNot Page.IsPostBack Then
Dim nCount As Int32 = 0
nCount = GetCounterValue()
lblTest.Text = nCount.ToString()
EndIf
EndSub

PrivateFunction GetCounterValue() As Int32

Dim ctrFile As StreamReader
Dim ctrFileW As FileStream
Dim sw As StreamWriter
Dim strPath AsString = Server.MapPath("indexcount.txt")
Dim strCounterContents AsString
Dim nCounter As Int32
 
If (File.Exists(strPath)) Then
ctrFile = File.OpenText(strPath)
strCounterContents = ctrFile.ReadLine().ToString()
ctrFile.Close()
nCounter = Convert.ToInt32(strCounterContents)
Else
nCounter = 0
EndIf
nCounter += 1
ctrFileW = New FileStream(strPath, FileMode.OpenOrCreate, FileAccess.Write)
sw = New StreamWriter(ctrFileW)
sw.WriteLine(Convert.ToString(nCounter))
sw.Close()
ctrFileW.Close()
Return nCounter
EndFunction
