ASP/VB Syntax

I have the code below which is giving me a syntax error, should be simple ... I hope.

           <% ' If field is checked off
If (Qnrpg1.Fields.Item("email").Value = "False")Then
input name="email" type="hidden" id="email" value="(ContactDetails.Fields.Item("Email").Value)"
<% End If %>  

It should check for the value of a field, if its "False" then should create that hidden field. This is the error:

is email a string value or a boolean? if it's a boolean value, then you would want:

 <% ' If field is checked off
If (Qnrpg1.Fields.Item("email").Value = False )Then %>
input name="email" type="hidden" id="email" value="(ContactDetails.Fields.Item("Email").Value)"
<% End If %>  

Open in new window


if it's a string value, then you have it correct, you're just missing your closing %> tag:

 <% ' If field is checked off
If (Qnrpg1.Fields.Item("email").Value = "False")Then %>
input name="email" type="hidden" id="email" value="(ContactDetails.Fields.Item("Email").Value)"
<% End If %>

Guessing this is what you want.

<%' If field is checked off
If Qnrpg1.Fields.Item("email").Value = "False" Then%>
	<input name="email" type="hidden" id="email" value="<%=ContactDetails.Fields.Item("Email").Value%>">
<% End If %>
