Run asp script with on change of input field

I have a form with a checkbox. I need to run an asp script when it is changed (checked/unchecked)

I am sure I have to use an onChange() JavaScript function but I have no clue as to how to run the asp code.

Any ideas

ASP doesn't run in the browser, you can use ajax to execute a ASP on the server
What is supposed to happen when the checkbox is changed?

The checkbox is stored in a field in an ms sql table. If clicked change it to on or off as is the case.

I I can get the on change to run the script even if it runs it on the server (as if it was the action in the form) I will be fine,

you're correct, you would use the onchange() event in javascript. as Gary pointed out, you need to use ajax, or you can submit the form and use POST/GET to get your data to run your asp script (you're not referring to running a vbs file are you?)

you can use this as an example:

your html:
<input type="checkbox" name="chk1" value="1" onchange="document.formName.submit()" />

Open in new window


your server side code:
<%
if Request.Form("chk1") = "1" then        '-- assuming POST here
     '-- run your asp script
end if
%>

Open in new window
