Page transfer with delay, if no password

Wiplinger The FREE ebook should be fully functional, but when the user goes to the next page, or back or jump to a page, than a reminder of paying should pop up, unless he obtained a password (and paid for it).

Is there a way to do that? Has somebody done it?

Wiplinger If the password is set, than a variable should be set too. Can I use this variable????

Posted on: 4:33 am on September 19, 2002
EBookCompiler Yes there is a variable {iscorrectpassword}

I didn't understand the original question

Wiplinger I tried the following script, but I did something wrong. Can anybody correct it, please.

<script language="JavaScript">

if( !{iscorrectpassword} ) {


alert("This messages can be disabled by donation! \n\ " ) ;

EBookCompiler Try something like. might not be exactly right

<script language="JavaScript">

var bFlag = window.external.ActivGet('{iscorrectpassword}') ;

if( !bFlag ) {


alert("This messages can be disabled by donation! \n\ " ) ;



(this will only work in a compiled E-Book, made using 4.22, and won't work if you preview your HTML pages in your browser etc)

Wiplinger You are right, almost ;-)

var bFlag = window.external.ActivGet('{iscorrectpassword}') ;
if(bFlag==0) {

is the correct way.

Now, I have tested it, and I have opened it. How can I disable my password entry again so that I can test again ;-)

Alaska Hi -

The Activ variable returns a string.  To use it for decision making, convert it to an integer with 'parseInt()' :


< script language="JavaScript">
< !--
var bFlag = window.external.ActivGet('{iscorrectpassword}') ;
IntbFlag = parseInt(bFlag);

if(!IntbFlag) {

alert("These messages go away with a small gratituity! \n\ " ) ;




I added a few spaces to the < script > tags and comments, 'cause it wouldn't display right if I didn't . . . remove them if you cut and paste.

. . . hope this helps.
