A VBScript Function that Emulates the VB IIf()

If you’re still using classic ASP, this is a simple little VBScript function that emulates the VB IIf().
It helps in intializing and making your code look a little cleaner.

'# classic asp alternative to the inbuilt VB function IIf
function iif(boolEval, trueStr, falseStr)
  if boolEval then
    iif = trueStr
    iif = falseStr
  end if
end function

'# simple usage
dim UserID
UserID = iif(request("userid") = "", -1, request("userid"))
