DataSpace Object and CreateObject Method Example (VBScript)


Beginning with Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012, RDS server components are no longer included in the Windows operating system (see Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 Compatibility Cookbook for more detail). RDS client components will be removed in a future version of Windows. Avoid using this feature in new development work, and plan to modify applications that currently use this feature. Applications that use RDS should migrate to WCF Data Service.

The following example shows how to use the CreateObject method of the RDS.DataSpace with the default business object, RDSServer.DataFactory. To test this example, cut and paste this code between the <Body> and </Body> tags in a normal HTML document and name it DataSpaceVBS.asp. ASP script will identify your server.

The following example shows how to use the CreateObject method to create an instance of a custom business object, VbBusObj.VbBusObjCls. It also uses the Active Server Pages scripting to identify the Web server name.

To see the complete example, open the sample applications selector. In the Client Tier column, select VBScript in Internet Explorer. In the Middle Tier column, select Custom Visual Basic Business Object.


If you are connecting to a data source provider that supports Windows authentication, you should specify Trusted_Connection=yes or Integrated Security = SSPI instead of user ID and password information in the connection string.

Sub Window_OnLoad()  
   strServer = "http://<%=Request.ServerVariables("SERVER_NAME")%>"  
   Set BO = ADS1.CreateObject("VbBusObj.VbBusObjCls", strServer)  
   txtConnect.Value = "dsn=Pubs;uid=MyUserID;pwd=MyPassword;"  
   txtGetRecordset.Value = "Select * From authors for Browse"  
End Sub
