Hi,

I'm developing a new skin for a client's site. The site combines standard DNN with some classic ASP applications. The ASP applications are a series of sequential forms implemented on a distinct url. The requirement is to 'integrate' these forms and present them via the DNN skin - without using IFrames.

One (maybe daft) idea I've had is to write some code that calls and renders an empty DNN page to an html file in the file system. THe asp code would then be able to access this file and use it as a template via which to present the forms.

Comments, ideas, blue-sky thinking all welcome...

Thanks

Phil

ouch - wouldn't it be easier to convert the pages to DNN modules?

I think this is not (with reasonable efforts) possible without an iframe.
And as sebastian states converting to a DNN module is probably less work.
Sorry to say, but classic asp is dead. :-)

 I am not sure about this statement - there are still use cases, where it has best performance and the option to access .net objects offers benefitting from .Net as well.
Anyhow, I know that migrating large solutions is a challenge, but it also opens up opportunities to get rid of many shortcomings...

Performance: paying for a  a bigger server is cheaper than developing for classic ASP IMO
