    Hello, I'm brand new to this forum and am here simply because I have no where else to look and I'm hoping I can get some help from an actual human.

    Anyways, my issue:
    I've built a website with MS Frontpage (will probably start using Expression Web soon...) and I need to find out a way to embed a program that I've written in Visual Basic into the website. Altho there is nothing of this project online, here is the website it will be going into... www.venntis.com .
    It will be set up in a way that a user will enter information into some forms and, based on their info, that will cause info to be pulled from a database, run some calculations, and return a value to the user. If you are familiar with a Carbon Footprint Calculator, that is what I'm trying to create...any help would be appreciated...feel free to respond via email as well.

    Thank You.

    Hi Schwartz,

    Do you have a Windows / .NET server to host your website on? You'll need that, even if it's by purchasing a shared Windows hosting plan.

    Once you have your server environment, check out http://www.asp.net/ - they have a lot of information there about setting up a .NET website. They also have a huge community of people totally dedicated to .NET development.

    Best of luck to you!

    I'm not sure if our server supports .NET...Providing that's the route I go, what would environment would I use to build my site? Visual Studio?
    Another option I was looking into was learning JavaScript and going that way. Would that be a better option?

    You would use VisualStudio.NET to create your app. You can get it free from www.asp.net

    JavaScript isn't the same as ASP/VB.NET - JS is front-end (client-side), and VB is back-end (server-side). Other alternatives to .NET are Java, PHP, and Ruby on Rails, which each also require special server configurations (usually Linux/Unix environments).

    If you're merely querying the database, I'd personally recommend using PHP, but that's because it's my favourite language. Although any server-side programming language would be able to do the deed - it's what you're comfortable with.

    First of all, you're bumping an old thread.

    Second, did you even bother to read the thread? He's talking about embedding a VB.net calculator...PHP isn't an option here.
