putting variables into VB Script

Post by ChrisM » Sun Feb 22, 2015 4:43 pm


I have a button that I want to use to run a VB Script, but I need to pass 2 pieces of information from livecode into it, I have these strings:-


and need to find a way to put the vbscript into it, then get it to amend these numbers with details from variables entered into livecode, then I want it to run the script

Any help would be appreciated

I think you have seen this thread before ;)
It still applies. Basically you can store the vbscript as (say) a custom property. In the script you can have placeholders for the dynamic content. Then you can put the custom property into a variable, replace the placeholder with your dynamic value, then do <variablename> as vbscript
