I have a set of javascript functions.   I have this statement in each page:

<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript" src="/Scripts/TNCP.js"></script>

Is there a way to do this in the web.config so that I don't have to add it to each page?

I would add it as in a include.  Make  an include page that just contains your js files to be used on every page and place them there.  It is a great way to make a template in asp.

An include file can be any text, html, asp file.  

Your page would look like below with only your js files.  I would do the same with css files, header and footer.

/INCLUDES/JS.ASP
<script src="/Scripts/TNCP.js"></script> 
<script src="/Scripts/foo.js"></script> 
<script src="/Scripts/bar.js"></script> 

Open in new window

INDEX.ASP
<!DOCTYPE html>
<%@LANGUAGE="VBSCRIPT" CODEPAGE="65001"%>
<html>
<!-- #include virtual file ="/includes/js.asp" --> 
<head>
  <meta charset="utf-8">
  <title>padas</title>
</head>
<body>

</body>
</html>

Open in new window


<!DOCTYPE html>
<%@LANGUAGE="VBSCRIPT" CODEPAGE="65001"%>
<html>
<!-- #include virtual file ="/includes/css.asp" --> 
<!-- #include virtual file ="/includes/js.asp" --> 
<head>
  <meta charset="utf-8">
  <title>padas</title>
</head>
<body>
<!-- #include virtual file ="/includes/header.asp" --> 
<!-- #include virtual file ="/includes/footer.asp" --> 
</body>
</html>

bear with me, but I'm not quite following.   This statement in my page:

<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript" src="/Scripts/TNCP.js"></script>

tells the system to pull in the javascript in the TNCP.JS file and make it available to the page, correct?  So that's sort of like an include.  I'm looking for a way to do this globally, for the whole project, and not page by page.   I want my library of javascript functions available on every page.  Does that make sense?

Are you saying I can create one include file that has an include directive that will pull in the TNCP.JS file for all pages?

You have to load your js files on every page.  If you want a global way to do this, use an include file where there is one file of just your js files.  Then if you need to shuffle them around, take something out or add, you just update the one include file.    

You are correct that the script, <script language="javascript" type="text/javascript" src="/Scripts/TNCP.js"></script> already is an include file of sorts.  One is client side and the other is serverside.  

If you build your template using include files like this, it will make your life very easy.  I use one for css, js, header, nav and footer since those files are always the same on every page.  Then just change the body of each individual page.    This method is very similar to how wordpress and other cms's work.
