Vb Script


Namespace: WIN_COM_API

Visual Basic Scripting Edition (VBScript) is a programming language developed by Microsoft for creating scripts that can be embedded in Ht Ml Web pages for viewing with Internet Explorer. These scripts can make Web pages more interactive. VBScript also works with ActiveX Controls, allowing Web site developers to create forms, interactive multimedia, games, and other Web-based programs. VBScript is similar in functionality to Java Script and is a subset of Visual Basic.

It competes with Java Script for Client Side Scripting but it is mostly used for Server Side Scripting in Active Server Pages.
