RunScript callback method

Called when script is found inside response body


  • Basic
object.RunScript (Owner, User, ScriptData, ResponseData)
The RunScript(object,Owner,User,ScriptData,ResponseData) syntax has these parts:
objectAn expression evaluating to an object of type IwodWebNotify
OwnerAn expression evaluating to an object of type wodWebServer
UserWebUser object. Reference to user that called CGI script.
ScriptDataString value. Full script data, as found in HTML content.
ResponseDataString value. Response you should fill with content that will be sent to the user.


NOTE: This method is called only if you implemented IwodWebNotify interface in your application, and wodWeb1.Notification property has received reference to instance of your implementation.

This notification method is called when wodWebServer finds content enclosed with markers defined in ScriptBegin and ScriptEnd properties in the response Body.

When such 'scripts' are found, this notification method is called allowing you to replace original content in the response with dynamic one - created by your code. Typically, you could set your markers like this:
User.Response.ScriptBegin = "<%"
User.Response.ScriptEnd = "%>"

Assuming your HTML webpage that is returned to the client looks like this:
Hi. You are coming from <b><%HOSTNAME%></b>. Current date is <b><%DATE%></b>

then you can, for example, in RunScript do this:
If ScriptData = "HOSTNAME" Then ResponseData = User.RemoteIP
If ScriptData = "DATE" Then ResponseData = Now

which will cause connected client to receive your changes 'embedded' to the page.
