Word-wrap ASP Output on Long Strings with No Blanks

If you need to output to the screen or print a long text string that has no spaces, the text string will not wrap to the preset dimensions of a table or to the browser window frame.

This simple function will wrap the text string based on any setting you provide:

<%Function WordWrap(OrigString)StrLength = Len(OrigString)intPosition = 1StrWrapNumber = 80StrLoop = StrLength StrWrapNumberIf StrLoop > 0 thenFor LoopStep = 0 to StrLoop	WrapString = Mid(OrigString, intPosition, StrWrapNumber)	Response.Write WrapString	Response.Write "
" intPosition = intPosition + StrWrapNumberNextElse Response.Write OrigStringEnd ifEnd Function%>

You can change the length of the block in the line

StrWrapNumber = 80

You can use this function as an include page and call it like so:

<%dim f_ OverallGoalf_OverallGoal = Result1("OverallGoal")response.write WordWrap(f_OverallGoal)%>

Note: This example applies to re-displaying from a database query; forre-displaying a form before submittal just use Request.Form rather thanResult1, etc.
