    A Book on Microsoft Script Editor?

    Can anybody recommend a good, all-encompassing, yet fairly intricate book on the Microsoft Script Editor? Certainly one that includes lots of code examples for the various types of scripts supported in MSE would be nice.

    Thanks much!

    Re: A Book on Microsoft Script Editor?

    I think I tried the script editor once... I don't know of any books on the editor itself. There may be a section on MSDN (http://msdn.microsoft.com/). The most relevant languages are VBScript and JavaScript. VBScript is easier for beginners and more like VBA, which you might have used to write Word macros. JavaScript is supported by non-Microsoft environments (such as the Mozilla and Firefox browsers) and is the de facto standard for client-side code in web pages. Microsoft calls it JScript, and there might be some proprietary extensions to MS materials on JScript. Probably better to get a general book on JavaScript. I'm not sure I would really recommend the one I use, I guess I'm still looking for a good JavaScript book. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Re: A Book on Microsoft Script Editor?

    I've been fairly pleased with the O'Reiley JavaScript book (3rd Edition, I think). It's come in handy over the years.

    On another note, I used Script Editor 7.0 for ASP coding prior to acquiring Visual Studio.NET. It worked quite well - including intellisense for VBScript and JScript. Also, I used Visual Studio.NET (2002) for classic ASP coding for over a year. It worked very well also. My only complaint is that the helpfile filter defaulted to include all .NET content - at the time I was only interested in VBScript help.
