Passing variable from code behind to HTML tag in ASP.NET

Some how in some case, we want to directly passing variable that we already declare in ASP.NET with code behind to the HTML tag, like <input type = “TEXT”> tag in HTML, we can do that just with the simple code, here is the way:

Declare test as a property (at the class level) instead of a local variable, then refer to it as you currently do in your markup (aspx).

VB.NET 10 (automatic properties):

Protected Property test As String = "Test" 


Pre-VB.NET 10 (no support for automatic properties)

Private _test As String
Protected Property Test As String
     Return _test
End Get
Set(value As String)
     _test = value
End Set
End Property


place that variable in HTML tag that you want to place, such as :

<input type=”TEXT” name=”SomeThing” size=”50″ maxlength=”250″ value = “<%= test %>”>


that’s all, hope this helpful

Run CGI program under IIS 7.0

Looking around I didn’t find a good documentation on how to get good old CGI’s running on IIS 7 or 7.5. Here is a quick walkthrough:

1. Let’s write a quick CGI:
Take the following code and save it as simplecgi.cs in the directory c:\inetpub\wwwroot\cgi

using System;
using System.Collections;

class SimpleCGI
    static void Main(string[] args)
        Console.WriteLine("<h1>Environment Variables</h1>");
        foreach (DictionaryEntry var in Environment.GetEnvironmentVariables())
            Console.WriteLine("<hr><b>{0}</b>: {1}", var.Key, var.Value);

2. Change into the C:\inetpub\wwwroot\cgi directory and compile the source by using the following command-line:

%windir%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\csc.exe SimpleCGI.cs
