Without them, the book couldn't have come about. After spending much time on the last book saying, "It's gonna be a long time before we do this again," something unexpected happened.
A fantastic topic coaxed us out of retirement and made liars of us within just a few months, and there we were, doing it again. This book came during busy times in our lives. During the time the book was written, we dealt with sick cockatiels Tim , rescuing kids locked in the bathroom and taking them to the circus Keith , wedding preparations Tim , the Boston Marathon Keith , busy work schedules Tim and Keith , and then the wedding itself Tim and Michelle!
We strove very hard for quality in this book and felt we never sacrificed in this regard. We did sacrifice time with family and friends, who nevertheless were right there behind us every step of the way. So much credit goes to them all. Much thanks and love from Keith to Sue and from Tim to Michelle. This book is dedicated to them. Keith adds: Thanks to my wife, Sue, for assisting with so many aspects of the book preparations in addition to being there every step of the way.
Thanks also to Ginger, Mom, and Dad, not only for the support in general, but also for making the kids the world's happiest grandkids. To Ginny, Emma, and Ben, who are still waiting on that pool to go up, to family and friends who are wondering when my hair will stop looking so ruffled, and to special running comrades who are waiting for me to stop complaining that I'm out of shape: Thanks for understanding.
Another book has been borne into the world, and we think it's an important one.
Tim adds: Thanks also to my wife, Michelle, for being so understanding and supportive during the busy time of wedding preparations and beginning a new life together.
She has been patient and tolerant of those evenings when I had to spend an inordinate amount of time in the den at my computer and when my schedule got a bit hectic. She has been a terrific partner, and I look forward to a wonderful life together with her. Thanks also to our pet cockatiel, Buddy Bird, who not only provided me with some great examples in the book, but was a great companion on those lonely days when Michelle was at work.
We also thank our parents for their support all through the years, both past and present.

Does it give you new capabilities that you can't get in other languages, or is it just another choice in a sea laden with confusing buzzwords? If you've pondered questions like these, you're not alone. VBScript is one of the most exciting new players in the rapidly expanding universe of technologies loosely termed the Internet.
The purpose of this book is to teach you how to use VBScript. As a brief prerequisite to that journey, consider why VBScript is such an important part of the Web page development arsenal. Perhaps the best way to understand the potential of this future-centered technology is to take a look at how far the Internet has come.
You might find that you have been involved in many of the trends leading up to the advent of VBScript without even realizing it, just as the authors have been. A little over a decade ago, one of the authors was producing Department of Defense software and the reams of documentation that go along with it. One of the requirements in putting together this documentation stipulated that it should be generated in a markup language called SGML. This markup language was quite cumbersome.
For example, it required that each heading start with an h1 tag and each paragraph with a p tag. Eventually, this project came to an end, and it seemed that this memory was just a relic of the past.
Then, along came the World Wide Web. The tag-oriented approach for Web pages succeeded precisely because it leaves the work of presenting Web pages to the browser.
This approach provides an efficient, low-overhead means for communicating across the Internet because it enables the information sent across the network to be content-centered while the browser takes care of the cosmetic details on its own.
About a decade ago, another important change in the computer industry began. The mainframe-centered computing world, where all work was performed on a central computer, was quickly being replaced by a more distributed model. Users could now do some of the work locally, using the horsepower of their own pcs rather than the mainframe. For example, an accountant could now do much of her work in a spreadsheet on her own pc, rather than vie for time on an overloaded mainframe to perform accounting analyses.
Once users had more computing power in front of them, they could take advantage of that power with a graphical user environment.
Windows filled this need, but the next big problem was creating the Windows applications themselves. In the early days when C was the only viable language alternative, Windows program development required such degrees of experience and development time that Windows programming was out of the reach of many. It was also quite difficult to integrate other commercial components into applications.
Visual Basic came forward to fill these voids. Because of its ease of use and component integration capability, Visual Basic achieved widespread acceptance over the course of the next few years and releases. Some even claim that this language, which did not exist a decade ago, is now the world's most popular programming language. That brings us to the very recent past. The Web provides a way to deliver content across the Internet to client computers, often pcs, using the tag-oriented HTML language.
A page is sent from some host computer for an end user to look at. The browser on the end user's computer has the job of presenting the information. What if more complex processing is needed in conjunction with a page? Suppose you want to trigger a series of simple financial calculations from a Web page. The HTML language doesn't provide such support. For a while, the only way to do this was to use an approach similar to the old mainframe approach-send requests back to the host computer and make it perform the processing.
Development for this very exciting environment required a language that not all could easily master. Sound like a familiar problem to you? It did to Microsoft, too, and in the process of inventing a comprehensive Internet strategy, Microsoft reinvented, or at least reengineered, the wheel. Visual Basic, Scripting Edition was its answer to these problems. VBScript, a subset of its parent, Visual Basic, is an easy-to-use language that is a cinch to integrate and provides an easy path to incorporate components.
If this brief history of the Internet and the reasons why VBScript came about are new to you, don't worry-you can take comfort in the fact that the currents of change are flowing in the right direction to make your Web page development easier than ever before.
Step-by-step, we will teach you how to use Visual Basic, Scripting Edition to its fullest potential. You will also see how to take advantage of powerful intrinsic controls, ActiveX controls, Java applets, and other objects through VBScript. All Rights Reserved. Powered by W3.
