ActiveHTML: Properties, Methods and Objects

ActiveHTML supports Microsoft ASP3.0-Standard nearly 100%. Therefore we will not write documentation about the ASP-Objects. You will find this documentation free at Microsoft website or at your MSDN-CDs.

You will find detailed samples on how to use the ActiveHTML-Objects and Methods in the installation package.

The Workstation-Version of ActiveHTML provides all objects and methods which are necessary to successfully execute ASP-Applications. To use the additional ActiveHTML-Objects and Methods, please purchase the Server-Version.


  • Response
    You can use the Response object to send output to the client (MSDN). The IStream interface (used with XML and DAO) is fully supported.  This object is binary compatible with the corresponding IIS object.
  • Request
    The Request object retrieves the values that the client browser passed to the server during an HTTP request (MSDN).  This object is binary compatible with the corresponding IIS object.
  • Session
    You can use the Session object to store information needed for a particular user-session. Variables stored in the Session object are not discarded when the user jumps between pages in the application; instead, these variables persist for the entire user-session. The Web server automatically creates a Session object when a Web page from the application is requested by a user who does not already have a session. The server destroys the Session object when the session expires or is abandoned (MSDN).  This object is binary compatible with the corresponding IIS object.
  • Application
    You can use the Application object to share information among all users of a given application. An ASP-based application is defined as all the .asp files in a virtual directory and its subdirectories (MSDN).  This object is binary compatible with the corresponding IIS object.
  • Server
    The Server object provides access to methods and properties on the server. Most of these methods and properties serve as utility functions (MSDN).  This object is binary compatible with the corresponding IIS object.
  • ASPError
    You can use the ASPError object to obtain information about an error condition that has occurred in script in an ASP page. The ASPError object is returned by the Server.GetLastError method (MSDN).  This object is binary compatible with the corresponding IIS object.
  • ScriptingContext
    Returns the built-in objects: Application, Request, Response, Server, or Session used by third party components.  This object is binary compatible with the corresponding IIS object.


  • NewMail
    The NewMail object provides for sending a message with very few lines of code. This object is binary compatible with the corresponding IIS object.


  • AdRotator
    Object that automates the rotation of advertisement images on a Web page (MSDN).
  • BrowserType
    Object that provides your scripts with a description of the capabilities of the client's Web browser (MSDN)
  • ContentRotator
    Object that automatically rotates HTML content strings on a Web page (MSDN).
  • Counters
    Object that can create, store, increment, and retrieve any number of individual counters (MSDN).
  • MyInfo (siehe MSDN)
  • NextLink
    Object that manages a list of URLs so that you can treat the pages in your Web site like the pages in a book (MSDN).
  • PageCounter
    Object that counts and displays the number of times a Web page has been opened (MSDN).
  • PermissionChecker
    Object that uses the password authentication protocols to determine whether a Web user has been granted permissions to read a file (MSDN).
  • Status
    Object that has properties that contain server status information (MSDN).

AHTML-Objects (Server-Version):

  • Exec
    Executes console application and returns the output of the program
  • Upload
    Very comfortable file upload object
  • Base64
    Object that crypts and decrypts data with Base64 algorithm.

AHTML-Methods and Properties (Server-Version):

  • BinaryReadFile
    Reads all bytes of a file and returns a Variant-Array. You may use this Array with Response.BinaryWrite.
  • CurrentUser
    Returns the current NT-User (e.g. SYSTEM)
  • Format
    Formats strings, numbers, date and time (MSDN)
  • GenGUIDString
    Creates a globally unique identifier (GUID). A 128-bit number that is guaranteed to be globally unique (no matter how many times it is run or how many different computers it runs on). You may want to use GUIDs as unique values in database-applications. Each time you call GenGUIDString, a new GUID is created
  • GMTFormat
    Returns a date in GMT-Format (Greenwich Mean Time)
  • MD5Crypt
    Creates an MD5 'digest' or 'signature' of a string. The MD5 algorithm is one of the industry standard methods for generating digital signatures. It is generically known as a digest, digital signature, one-way encryption, hash or checksum algorithm. A common use for MD5 is for password encryption as it is one-way in nature. The MD5 algorithm is defined in RFC1321.
  • ProcessASP
    Processes code it as if it were part of the calling ASP script and returns the output as string.
  • SwitchUser
    Switches to the context of an NT user account while processing an ASP-Page
