ALP Response.ContentType property
Allows the script to set the content type for the output.


Response.ContentType = string


string - string containing the new MIME content type

By default ScriptGen assumes that the output is text/html. If you are generating something else you must set the appropriate value in order to inform the browser (or other application using ALP through the URLMonikers) what to do with the output.



<% Response.ContentType = "text/plain" %>

If the output is plain text.

When using BinaryWrite method content type is usually something else - for example some image format:

<% Response.ContentType = "image/gif" %>
<% Response.ContentType = "image/jpeg" %>


Note that ALP buffers the output always. Thus in ASP compatible pages the content type can be set at any point of the script and of course can be changed at some next point. For compatibility with the classic ASP setting the content type should be done before any other output. In other case the ASP pages may fail when running on a WEB server.
