ASP AdRotator Component

The ASP AdRotator component creates an AdRotator object that displays a different image each time a user enters or refreshes a page. A text file includes information about the images.

Syntax

<%
set adrotator=server.createobject("MSWC.AdRotator")
adrotator.GetAdvertisement("textfile.txt")
%>


ASP AdRotator Example

Assume that we have the following text file, named "advertisement.txt":

REDIRECT images.html
!!

The lines below the asterisk in the text file above specifies the name of the images (ads) to be displayed, the hyperlink addresses, the alternate text (for the images), and the display rates (in percent).

The first line in the text file above specifies what to happen when a visitor clicks on one of the images. The redirection page (images.html) will receive a querystring with the URL to redirect to.

Hint: To specify the height, width, and border of the image, you can insert the following lines under REDIRECT:

REDIRECT images.html
WIDTH 500
HEIGHT 80
BORDER 1
!!

The "images.html" file looks like this:

Example

<%
url=Request.QueryString("url")
If url<>"" then Response.Redirect(url)
%>

<html>
<body>
<%
set adrotator=Server.CreateObject("MSWC.AdRotator")
response.write(adrotator.GetAdvertisement("textfile.txt"))
%>
</body>
</html>
