using wscript to call vbscript file but...

1 New Member
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Dim oShell, a
  2. oShell = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
  3. a = "c:\sig.vbs"
  4. oShell.run(a, 3, True)
I am using the code above to run a vbscript, however, I have yet to find a way to pass 2 variables to the vbscript. Can this be done at all? From a vb windows application to a vbscript?

Yes, You can pass your arguments in this way
Dim oShell, a
oShell = CreateObject("W script.Shell")
a = "c:\sig.vbs "
a=a & " " & arg1 & " " & arg2
oShell.run(a, 3, True)

Hope that will be what you want

Will this code work in VB6.
I try to use it directly with myfilename substituted for sig.vbs and get a syntax error on oShell.run(a, 3, True)

I have a number of .vbs scripts that I want to execute from button presses on a VB6 GUI.
