Securing a page & Handling Errors RRS feed

  • Question

  • User1716997844 posted


    a) I can't seem to find any resources on how to secure a page. I have a page "RepairReport.asp" I want it to be only assessible by either an Administrator or Employee who has login successfully via login.asp

    b) I have a page repairReport.asp which has a form that looks like this:

    	<p align="center">Please complete the following form</p>
    	<form name="form1" method="post" action="">
    	  <div align="center">
    		<table border="0" width="538">
    			<th scope="row" align="right">Repair ID: </th>
    			<td><input name="textarea" id="textarea" value="" size="15" type="text" />
    			<th scope="row" align="right" height="55">Employee Name:</th>
    			<td><input name="textarea2" id="textarea2" value="" size="45" type="text" /></td>
    			<th scope="row" align="right" height="39"><p>Computer ID:</p></th>
    			<td><input name="textarea" value="" size="15" type="text" /></td>
    			<th scope="row" align="right">Problem Type:</th>
    			<td><input name="textarea" value="" size="15" type="text" />(HW or SW)</td>
    			<th scope="row" align="right">Description:</th>
    			<td><textarea name="textarea4" cols="45" rows="5" ></textarea></td>
    			<th scope="row" align="right">Repair:</th>
    			<td><textarea name="textarea4" cols="45" rows="5" ></textarea></td>
    			<th scope="row" align="right">Repair Status:</th>
    			<td><input name="textarea"  value="" size="15" type="text" />(New, Repaired, Completed)</td>
    			<th scope="row">&nbsp;</th>

    I wanted to validate forms but what I don't understand each form does not have unique names. I were to response.Request form it only has 3 names: 

    • textarea
    • textarea2
    • textarea4

    How am I suppose to validate each and each form? ie. if I were to validate the Repair ID like: "Repair id must have R-xxx format where xxx is any number" how am I suppose to call that specific form?

    And finally that same page (repairReport.asp) has a 

    <h4 align="center"><font color="red">All Error Messages Go Here</font></h4>

    How am I supposed to embed the error though the validation on page instead of redirecting it to a different page? I don't want it to go to a different page and state something like: "Error. Click back in your browser, and fill it out properly!"

    Thanks for your time!
