End of Statement (Delphi Prism and ASP Classic Cross Reference Guide)

By Mike Prestwood

Delphi Prism versus ASP Classic: A side by side comparison between Delphi Prism and ASP Classic.

 
Language Basics
 

Language basics is kind of a catch all for absolute beginner stuff. The items (common names) I chose for language basics is a bit random and include items like case sensitivity, commenting, declaring variables, etc.

End of Statement

[Other Languages] 

Languages Focus

In coding languages, common End of statement specifiers include a semicolon and return (others exist too). Also of concern when studying a language is can you put two statements on a single code line and can you break a single statement into two or more code lines.

Delphi Prism:   ;

Object Pascal uses a semicolon ";" as an end of statement specifier and you can put multiple statements on a single line of code and put a single statement on two or more code lines if you wish.

Syntax Example:  
MessageBox.Show("Hello1");
MessageBox.Show("Hello2");
MessageBox.Show("Hello3");

//Same line works too:
MessageBox.Show("Hello4");  MessageBox.Show("Hello5");

//Two or more lines works too:
MessageBox.Show
("Hello6");
ASP Classic:   Return

A return marks the end of a statement and you cannot combine statements on a single line of code. You can break a single statement into two or more code lines by using a space and underscore " _".

Syntax Example:
Response.Write("Hello1")
Response.Write("Hello2")
Response.Write("Hello3")

'The following commented code on a single line does not work...
' Response.Write("Hello4") Response.Write("Hello5")

'Two or more lines works too with a space+underscore:
Response.Write _
("Hello6")
