Using the Global Server Object
Tips: October 2002
Yehuda Shiran, Ph.D.
Server object includes one property and four methods. The property is
ScriptTimeOut. It lets you control when the script processing should time out. The four methods are:
CreateObject: creates an instance of a server component. You must have this component installed on your server.
HtmlEncode: encodes a string in HTML.
MapPath: maps the current virtual directory to a given physical directory.
URLEncoding: URL-encodes a given string
In IBuySpy, we convert the user name to HTML with
Server.HtmlEncode and then save the HTML stream in a cookie, for personalizing the next
"Welcome Back" message:
Response.Cookies["IBuySpy_FullName"].Value = Server.HtmlEncode(Name.Text);
