The Write method writes a specified string to the current HTTP output.


Response.Write variant


The data to write. This parameter can be any data type supported by the Visual Basic?Scripting Edition VARIANT data type, including characters, strings, and integers. This value cannot contain the character combination %>; instead you should use the escape sequence %\>. The Web server will translate the escape sequence when it processes the script.


The following examples use the Response.Write method to send output to the client.

I just want to say <% Response.Write "Hello World." %> 
Your name is: <% Response.Write Request.Form("name") %> 

The following example adds an HTML tag to the Web page output. Because the string returned by the Write method cannot contain the character combination %>, the escape %\> has been used instead. The following script

<% Response.Write "<TABLE WIDTH = 100%\>" %> 

produces the output

<TABLE WIDTH = 100%>
