URL Property (RDS)

Indicates a string that contains a relative or absolute URL.

You can set the URL property at design time in the DataControl object's OBJECT tag, or at run time in scripting code.


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.


Design time: <PARAM NAME="URL" VALUE="Server">  
Run time: DataControl.URL="Server"  


A String value that contains a valid URL.

An object variable that represents a DataControl object.


Typically, the URL identifies an Active Server Page (.asp) file that can produce and return a Recordset. Therefore, the user can obtain a Recordset without having to invoke the server-side DataFactory object, or program a custom business object.

If the URL property has been set, SubmitChanges will submit changes to the location specified by the URL.
