No, you can't do that. Your Web server will run one processor/handler
for each page request. You're essentially trying to send *one* HTTP
request to a CGI program, and then have the ASP output of that program
treated as if it were an ASP source page, and run through the ASP
processor. That's double-dipping.
However, most of the MapServer template functionality allows you to do
pretty powerful things WITHOUT a scripting language. If you've already
got a scripting language like ASP, you can just do those things in ASP.
The easiest way (IMHO) to do this is to have your ASP code generate the
"template" output, and insert the appropriate IMG tags with SRC
properties specifying MapServer CGI requests, like:
where you'd like to insert the scalebar in the output HTML generated by
your ASP page.

Subject: [UMN_MAPSERVER-USERS] ASP with server-side scripting in map
Is it possible to include server-side vbscript on a map template?
MapServer can use .asp as a map template, but nothing is done with the
scripting I tried to include. In fact, if you look at the source of the
resultant page, the vbscript is clearly visible. My problem is that I'm
stuck with asp and there are a few things I would like to add to the map
template that would be more efficient to do via vbscript than a
Thanks for any advice,
