Title: Snitz code
Post by: MysteryFCM on February 20, 2009, 01:48:37 AM
Mike,
I just took a quick look at the Snitz code and they really shouldn't be using;

Code: [Select]
Set xml = Server.CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP")
If their server doesn't allow MSXML2, they badly need to upgrade MSXML

The forum thread for the Snitz code is here:

http://forum.snitz.com/forum/topic.asp?whichpage=1.52&TOPIC_ID=68098&#388054

I'll mention it to them, but you may want to say something as I don't really know ASP at all.

hehe I actually read the thread before looking at the code, but didn't want to join there just to tell them they weren't using the MSXML object correctly as far as MSDN was concerned  :-X

Tried registering at snitz.com to correct the user that responded with the other MS link (the reason he used Microsoft.XMLHTTP instead of the now valid MSXML2..... is the same reason most of us do when posting examples - alot of people still haven't upgraded their MSXML version, so we want to ensure the example will still work)

As an FYI btw;

don't know anything about the workings of 'Server.CreateObject'

Server.CreateObject() instantiates an  active-x- control, nothing more nothing less :) (how it's used is determined entirely by the  active-x- itself)

The snitz forum keeps telling me I've not entered the damn birth date, even though I've ensured several times that I have .....  >:(
