Sample ASP Code


Sample ASP Code

Would it be possible to get samples of the APIs in Classic ASP?

We would also be interested in getting a sample used in Classic ASP using VBScript.

wrote this up today. amalgamation of what worked in PHP and the ASP classic winHTTP methods. fully reusable function..

FirstName="Contact_First_Name" //Your Contact's First Name
LastName="Contact_Last_Name" //Your Contact's Last Name
EmailAddress="Contact_Email" //Your Contact's Email Address
PostalCode="Contact_Zip_Code" //Your Contact's Zip Code
UN = "ConstantContact_User_Name" //Your Account Username
PW = "ConstantContact_Password" //Your Account Password
OptInSource="ACTION_BY_CUSTOMER" //The Actoin Type, usually as listed
API_Key = "ConstantContact_API_Key" //Your API Key
List_ID="1" //Your Particular List ID,,1,2,3 & etc. (Default is 1, first user created would be 2, and so on)

response.write(PostDataToURL(List_ID,FirstName,LastName,EmailAddress,PostalCode, "POST", UN,PW,API_Key))

I need help setting with two things:


1. set up my ASP page posting information my classic ASP form to Constant Contact so users can subscribe/unsubscribe directly from my site


The link above by a CC employee links to the main developer page that has no sample code for classic ASP. For the most part, I understand the sample shown here regarding ASP and PHP, but since I'm not familiar with PHP, I don't fully understand what it is doing. Can someone please post a very simple code for classic ASP?



Sorry for the dead link above.  Our .NET sample contact forms are here now:

Thanks - I see the ASP.NET files, but no classic ASP.

Sorry about that.  We don't have any supported classic ASP examples.
