Identifying Browsers using ASP

Using the BrowserType object, your ASP pages can detect the type for browser being used to download the page. In addition, you can also test the browser for specific capabilities.

The following code demonstrates how you can use the BrowserType object:

<% SET bc = Server.CreateObject("MSWC.BrowserType") %>
Browser = <%= bc.browser %>
Version = <%= bc.version %>
Frames = <%= bc.frames %>
Tables = <%= bc.tables %>
Background Sounds = <%= bc.BackgroundSounds %>
JavaScript = <%= bc.Javascript %>
VBScript = <%= bc.vbscript %>

The browser and version type are retrieved from the browser hitting the ASP page, the specific capabilities are stored in the server's Browscap.ini file.
