    Red face Unanswered: Calling an API in ASP

    Hi, Im trying to convert a VB front end to ASP if it is indeed possible, the question being is that I have the API documentation to do so but how do I actually call an API via ASP?

    This could well be a stupid question but in my defence I am a novice.
    I have looke around the web with little success so far.

    Thanks in advance,

    Simon.

    You cannot directly call API functions from ASP (or functions in external DLLs). You can however interface with registered ActiveX Server Components. You could write a wrapper interface for all your api calls you need.

    ASP and API

    Hi,

    you can try to write the API Functions in ActiveX dll.
    If you register this dll on the IIS, you can call the
    CreateObject function from your VBS or ASP code.

    There must be also another way to do it. This is just the way, I did it once.
