    Book details

Microsoft's Visual Basic Scripting Edition (VBScript), a subset of Visual Basic for Applications, is a powerful language for Internet application development, where it can serve as a scripting language for server-side, client-side, and system scripting. Whether you're developing code for Active Server Pages, client-side scripts for Internet Explorer, code for Outlook forms, or scripts for Windows Script Host, VBScript Pocket Reference will be your constant companion.Don't let the pocket-friendly format fool you. Based on the bestsellingVBScript in a Nutshell, this small book details every VBScript language element--every statement, function, and object--both in VBScript itself, and in the Microsoft Scripting Runtime Library. There's a special emphasis on the following details:

  • The syntax, using standard code conventions
  • The arguments accepted by the function or procedure, if any exist
Entries are arranged alphabetically by topic, so that you can, for instance, easily find details about that string-handling function that you can't quite remember. In addition, appendixes list VBScript operators and VBScript intrinsic constants.Regardless of how much VBScript programming experience you have, theVBScript Pocket Reference is the book you'll pick up time and time again as your standard quick reference guide to the VBScript language. It is indispensable for anyone writing scripts with VBScript.

    It you want to learn VBScript go elsewhere. However, if you just want a quick reference that you can take anywhere this is the only book for you. It is remarkably concise and very well written. Its perfect for the VBScritp programmer that needs a little help from time to time looking up a hard to remember command and its syntax.

    I'm sure that this is a perfectly good reference book for VB Scripting, but the print quality is abysmal. It looks as if it was optically reduced from a larger format, and unfortunately, half the fonts used did not survive the reduction in readable form. Lines in individual characters became so thin that they simply vanished, leaving you trying to guess what each letter actually was.If this was a novel, that might be almost usable. But a book on programming, where every character counts?Oh, deary, deary me.

    Needed it for a specialized project; as accompaniment to the entire book, it's just right.

    I was a disappointed with the number of commands that this VBScript Pocket Reference covers. I was taking an introductory class that seemed to delve deeper into the various commands that VBScript has to offer. Unfortunately, this book is not inclusive enough to be useful.

    This book really helped me in times of need. It covers a good broad amount of knowledge you can piece together for helpful results. I would suggest this book for any beginner VB script-er.

    I bought this book to sit right next to my monitor. I use VBScript about 8-10 a month for various tasks and rarely are they the same tasks; it provides enough foundation for me to work out my need. For the price, size and ability to quickly locate the function, loop, etc. I need, it has been perfect!

    What can I say, it's an O'Reilly book. I have quite of few books from this publisher and I have never been disappointed with any of them. This one is thorough, lives up to its promise, and comes in quite handy more times than I expected. Recommended.

    Straight and to the point. Shows the syntax of the various commands with some useful examples. Table of contents both groups by command types and lists them alphabetically. When I am writing scripts I keep this close by.
