Hi

Bit of a weird question as I no nothing about ASP but need to alter a bit of code. At present I'm having issues as I cannot see the FULL XML code that is being sent to a page (as its part of a CRM system) so what I want to do is basically grab whatever XML request comes to this page, and return it.

By returning it I can then associate this with a field on the screen which it populates, then a basic right click "view source" should hopefully show me the entire XML

Sounds naff right, but its the only way itll work ;)

This is what I have so far, this returns a single value based on what is sent, how can I simply grab all that is sent and chuck it back?

Full code please as I'm a Java, PHP guy.

<%
	' - no cache -
	Response.Expires = -1000

	' - define variables -
	Dim XMLDoc
	Dim outXml
	Dim fridgeNo
	Dim cost
	Dim ffCost
	Dim totalCost
	Dim priceFridge = 10
			
	' - Load XML -	
	Set XMLDoc = CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLDOM")	
	XMLDoc.load(Request)
	
	' - Read XML and get fridgeNo count -
	Set myNode = XMLDoc.SelectSingleNode("//fridgeNo")
	if myNode.text = "" Then
		fridgeNo = cint(0)
	else
		fridgeNo = cint(myNode.text)
	end if           
			
	' - work out fidge cost -
    if fridgeNo=cdbl(0) Then
        cost = cdbl(cost) + cdbl(0)
        ffCost = cdbl(0)
    else
        cost = cdbl(cost) + (fridgeNo * priceFridge)
        ffCost = (fridgeNo * priceFridge)
    end if

	' - build the XML response -
	XMLDoc.SelectSingleNode("//txtFFCost").Text = FormatNumber(ffCost,2)
	XMLDoc.SelectSingleNode("//txtTotalCost").Text = FormatNumber(cost,2)
	XMLDoc.SelectSingleNode("//fridgeNo").Text = ""
	
	' - trap any errors -
	If XMLDoc.parseError.errorcode <> 0 Then
		Response.write("XML Parse Error Code = " & XMLDoc.parseError.errorcode)
		Response.end
	end if
	
	' - return the XML -
	Response.ContentType = "text/xml"
	Response.write(xmlDoc.xml)
	
	' - bye -
	Set XMLDoc = Nothing
%>

>so what I want to do is basically grab whatever XML request comes to this page, and return it.

Where you have

' - Load XML -	
	Set XMLDoc = CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLDOM")	
	XMLDoc.load(Request)

Open in new window

You should be able to write out that variable.

response.write (Request) ' print to screen
response.end()  ' don't bother with the rest of the code
<%
	' - no cache -
	Response.Expires = -1000

	' - define variables -
	Dim XMLDoc
	Dim outXml
	Dim fridgeNo
	Dim cost
	Dim ffCost
	Dim totalCost
	Dim priceFridge = 10
			
	' - Load XML -	
	Set XMLDoc = CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLDOM")	
	XMLDoc.load(Request)

' ******** new code here **************

response.write(Request)
response.end

' ******* end new code ****************
	
	' - Read XML and get fridgeNo count -
	Set myNode = XMLDoc.SelectSingleNode("//fridgeNo")
	if myNode.text = "" Then
		fridgeNo = cint(0)
	else
		fridgeNo = cint(myNode.text)
	end if           
			
	' - work out fidge cost -
    if fridgeNo=cdbl(0) Then
        cost = cdbl(cost) + cdbl(0)
        ffCost = cdbl(0)
    else
        cost = cdbl(cost) + (fridgeNo * priceFridge)
        ffCost = (fridgeNo * priceFridge)
    end if

	' - build the XML response -
	XMLDoc.SelectSingleNode("//txtFFCost").Text = FormatNumber(ffCost,2)
	XMLDoc.SelectSingleNode("//txtTotalCost").Text = FormatNumber(cost,2)
	XMLDoc.SelectSingleNode("//fridgeNo").Text = ""
	
	' - trap any errors -
	If XMLDoc.parseError.errorcode <> 0 Then
		Response.write("XML Parse Error Code = " & XMLDoc.parseError.errorcode)
		Response.end
	end if
	
	' - return the XML -
	Response.ContentType = "text/xml"
	Response.write(xmlDoc.xml)
	
	' - bye -
	Set XMLDoc = Nothing
%>

Open in new window

The above is just for testing so you can see the entire response.
