MarkItUp! and ASP Classic - Preview

Hello All;

OK, I have MarkItUp!, of which I really enjoy using in our sites.
The issue that I am having, and have never figured out.
Is, how to parse the editor, using Classic ASP.
Now, I can parse the code, that is not the problem.
The problem that I am having, is getting the page to show up at all.

Right now, I just have
This is a test
Written in the file, just to show something, so I can make sure that it is working.
And I cannot get it to show up.
I even changed the filename ext, to .html, to see if that was the issue, and no go.

This is what I have in the jquery.markitup.js
previewTemplatePath:      '~/parsers/Preview.asp',

Do I need to add or so anything else to the settings within the file, to make the preview display?
Right now, the only thing that is happening, is that it is showing a blank window.

This the the entire section.

		options = {	id:						'',
					nameSpace:				'',
					root:					'',
					previewHandler:			false,
					previewInWindow:		'', // 'width=800, height=600, resizable=yes, scrollbars=yes'
					previewInElement:		'',
					previewAutoRefresh:		true,
					previewPosition:		'after',
					previewTemplatePath:	'~/parsers/Preview.asp',
					previewParser:			false,
					previewParserPath:		'',
					previewParserVar:		'data',
					resizeHandle:			true,
					beforeInsert:			'',
					afterInsert:			'',
					onEnter:				{},
					onShiftEnter:			{},
					onCtrlEnter:			{},
					onTab:					{},
					markupSet:			[	{ /* set */ } ]
				};

Open in new window

I found it.

You have to look at the top of the set.js file.
There you will find:
 previewParserPath:  "~/sets/bbcode/preview.php",

Change this to the path and filename of your file.

In my case, it is
 previewParserPath:  "~/sets/bbcode/preview.asp",

That is it.

Found the information when I used the developer tool within Google Chrome.
When I clicked on the Preview link, it showed me the file did not exist, and then I did a search for it, within Dreamweaver's power search feature.
(You do not have to have the file(s) open, in order to search through them, when it is found, DW opens it up for you.
People bash DW, but it comes in handy for a lot of really cool things.
Just NOT coding. That is best left done on your own.)
