Data Type: Array
The name of the array.
Data Type: Long
A number specifying the dimension of the array.
Determines the lower limit of a specified dimension of an array. The lower boundary is the smallest subscript you can access within the specified array.
dimension isn’t specified, 1 is
assumed. To determine the lower limit of the first dimension of an
dimension to 1, to 2 for the
second, and so on.
This function appears to have little use in VBScript, since VBScript does not allow you to control the lower bound of an array. Its value, which is 0, is invariable. However, it is possible for ActiveX components created using Visual Basic to return a array with a lower bound other than 0 to a VBScript script.
LBound is useful when handling arrays passed by ActiveX controls written in VB, since these may have a lower bound other than 0.
Unlike VBA, there is no
Base available in VBScript, nor does VBScript support the
To keyword in the
ReDim statements. Therefore, all arrays
will have a lower bound of 0.
