View Full Version : ASP and JavaScript working together

Hi. I understand that ASP is server side and JS is, at least in my case, run on the client. So, an ASP process will be run before a JS process. I want to make them work together if possible.

Here is my problem: I have an ASP process that uses a component on my server to FTP files from my server to another. It gets the files it needs and FTP settings from a database and runs great.

Then, I have a progress bar in JS. I can run a loop to test it and it runs great.

Now, I want to combine the two so that as each file is transferred from my server the progress bar progresses. The problem is that the ASP process run to completion before the progress bar is ever displayed on the page.

My next approach is to use an if statement to see if the counter is equal to the number of records from the recordset of files to transfer. Maybe if I do it that way I can transfer one file at a time and then update the prograss bar instead of trying to do it all at one in a while loop.

Does anyone else have any ideas on how I could do this?

You can go for any ASP Upload scripts that supports uploading file(s) as well as showing a progress bar.

So you don't have to worry about the JS client side execution at all.

If you are dealing with the client side JS scripts it will trigger their execution at the client browser.
