Yes we have more or less. Well in fact, in ASP you don't specify of which type a variable is. But you can create an array, and you can put all types in it (also integers).

You can always do a conversion to be sure it's of the good type.

And here's a self-explaining example:


<%@ Language=VBScript %>
<HTML>
<HEAD>
<META NAME="GENERATOR" Content="Microsoft Visual Studio 6.0">
</HEAD>
<BODY>
<%
Dim intArray()          ' If you don't add a number, you can change it later with ReDim

ReDim intArray(4)     ' Redimention the array

intArray(1) = CInt(1)     ' To force it to be a number, use CINT
intArray(2) = CInt(1)     ' To force it to be a number, use CINT
intArray(3) = CInt(1)     ' To force it to be a number, use CINT
intArray(4) = CInt(1)     ' To force it to be a number, use CINT
' intArray(5) = 1   ' GIVES OVERFLOW

%>
</BODY>
</HTML>

heres an example of code that takes an array, some of the array variables have been set to "" and the function cleanArray removes all the emties. whilst this does not address your question specificaly it will show you a few cool things with VBScript arrays. as already stated arrays can contain any data type and even a mixture of data types, in this way it is analogus to a java vector. it is best to use conversion routines when appropriate

<%

Function cleanArray(tarr)
      arr = tarr
      FOR i = 0 TO UBOUND(arr)
            IF(arr(i) = "" AND i < UBOUND(arr))THEN
                  arr(i) = arr(i + 1)
                  arr(i + 1) = ""     
            END IF            
      NEXT
      count = 0
      FOR i = 0 TO UBOUND(arr)
            IF(arr(i) <> "")THEN
                  count = count + 1      
            END IF            
      NEXT
      REDIM PRESERVE arr(count)
      cleanArray = arr
End Function

dim arra(6)
arra(0) = "Hello"
arra(1) = "Hi"
arra(2) = "asp"
arra(3) = ""
arra(4) = "weeeee"
arra(5) = ""

'narra will now be a clean version of arra
narra = cleanArray(arra)

FOR i = 0 TO UBOUND(narra)
      Response.Write(narra(i) & "<BR>")    
NEXT

%>
