include vbscript file

I have a script I want to have on a separate page and simply link to the pages that need the script. I created a file called 'ipadcode.asp'  the code on that page is:

---

<%@LANGUAGE="VBSCRIPT" CODEPAGE="65001"%>
<%Function isIPad()
    If InStr(Request.ServerVariables("HTTP_USER_AGENT"), "iPad") > 0 Then
        isIPad = True
    Else
        isIPad = False
    End If
End Function
%>


---

1. Is the code above correct or should it be different ?  
2. Is the name of the file correct or should I change the extension to . vb ?

---

the page links to this file using :

<script language="VBScript" runat="server" src="../../../ScriptLibrary/ipadcode.asp"></script>

Is this correct or should the syntax be different ?

Hope it makes sense.

Have the vbscript as include file like this:

<%Function isIPad()
    If InStr(Request.ServerVariables("HTTP_USER_AGENT"), "iPad") > 0 Then
        isIPad = True
    Else
        isIPad = False
    End If
End Function
%>

and save it as ipadcode.inc

THen include it like this:

<!-- #include virtual="/FolderName/ScriptLibrary/ipadcode.inc" -->

I tried the above, made sure the link is correct (As you can see in the screenshot), and go this error:

Active Server Pages error 'ASP 0126'
Include file not found

/bluedot/Intranet/Cases/Documents/UpdateMergedLetter.asp, line 4

The include file '/../../../ScriptLibrary/ipadcode.inc' was not found.

I even tried copying the file to the same folder and got:

Active Server Pages error 'ASP 0126'

Include file not found

/bluedot/Intranet/Cases/Documents/UpdateMergedLetter.asp, line 4

The include file 'ipadcode.inc' was not found.

with this code:

<!-- #include virtual="ipadcode.inc" -->

any clues ?

No,

If you are going to put the file in the folder where all your files are, then this:

<!-- #include file="ipadcode.inc" -->

When you use Virtual, you are basically saying that the include file is in a different folder from where the rest of your files are.

<!-- #include file="../../../ScriptLibrary/ipadcode.inc" -->

Some servers may not accept that method because of the configuration.

In the event that you run into that situation, simply go to iis, expand default website, right-click on your website, click properties, click options, then check the "Enable Parent Paths" box.

Meanwhile, please accept the answer since it solved your problem and close the thread.
