VB.net as editor for WSH and WMI scripts

DKJ
Sapien's Primalscript costs about $150, I believe. If I purchase Visual
Studio.NET, I know I can do a lot more than just create VBscript scripts, but
can the VB portion of VS.NET be used as a VBscript editor? Would it serve as
a good one, or might I be better off with Primalscript?

DKJ,

I would ask this in a PrimalScript newsgroup in your situation.

OK. But can but can the VB portion of VS.NET be used as a VBscript editor?
Does anyone here use VS to create VBScript scripts?

Yes. You can use the Visual Studio IDE as a VBScript editor. VBScript is
even listed as one of the templates when you open a new file. Plus you get
intellisense when you create objects using CreateObject function.

DKJ,

I love it to write JavaScripts I never saw a better one, however I have no
expirience with PrimalScript and therefore I cannot compare.

(I never use VBscript)

Hey that's great! When creating a VBScript, does Intellisense function *only*
with the CreateObject function, or with many more functions as well?

Hmmm. Not sure. Been a while since I did VBScript.

If I remember everything in VBScript is a variant. The only way to create
"objects" is with CreateObject or GetObject? If true, what else would
intellisense work on?
(You do get the hints about completing built-in functions. For example,
using the Replace method will show a tooltip showing the parameters for the
method.. as in Replace(expression, fine, replacement, [start], [count],
[compare]) )
