Part II. Reference

This section consists of only a single very long chapter, Chapter 10, which contains an alphabetic reference to VBScript language elements.

The chapter documents the following:

  • Statements, like Dim or For Each.

  • Functions, like Format or InStr.

  • The Scripting Runtime object models: the File System object model and the Dictionary object model. Here you’ll find complete documentation of all of the objects, along with their properties and methods.

When you’re looking for a particular language element but don’t quite remember what it’s called, an alphabetic reference is of little value. For this reason, we’ve included Appendix A. Finally, VBScript operators aren’t included in this section. Instead, you’ll find them discussed in Appendix C.
