I wish to know how I can detect the users screen resolution. I want to display an ad on the side of the forum if the resolution is higher than 1024.


Dim strScreen
Dim strShow

strScreen = "user screen resolution"
If strScreen => "1024" Then strShow = True

Thank you,

You would need to use JavaScript to detect the screen resolution of the visitor:-

Is there a way to pass that information directly to ASP?  The only way I figured out how to do that is have the Javascript set a cookie, and then on the next page load read the cookie to get the resolution.

You can pass JavaScript results to ASP server side page with some simple form like:

<form target="set_resolution.asp" method="post" id="frm_scr" name="frm_scr">
<input type="hidden" id="scr_width" value="">
<input type="hidden" id="scr_height" value="">

be note that document.body.clientHeight/Width is available in IE 8+. There is other way to get screen dimensions with JavaScript, but the idea to pass that data to ASP is same. Hope that this help
