I'd like to use MS script control in my application.
for example, A VB script file is opened in an edit form(Mome1), click a button to run that script.
Anyone can tell me how to start in Delphi?

I lifted this from a cmment I made in another question sometime ago (http://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/Q_20186201.html):

var
 Form1: TForm1;
 script : variant;

implementation

{$R *.dfm}

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
    edit2.text := script.eval(edit1.text);
end;

procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
begin
    script := createOLEObject('ScriptControl');
    script.language := 'JScript';
end;


Just add comObj to your uses clause.  The only problem is that you can put any jscript (or vbscript, if you specifiy that instead) expression in edit1. even something like:

result  = 0;for(ix=0;ix<=10;ix++){result += ix;}

will return 55. And:

2*Math.sin(45*3.1415926535897932384/180)/Math.sqrt(2);

will return 1. The problem lies with the fact that the user could also enter somthing like this:

var ie = new ActiveXObject('InternetExplorer.Application');ie.visible = 1;ie.navigate('www.experts-exchange.com');

and actually get a new explorer window opened & navigated to EE.

Thank you Mike, I have one more question: how can I run a function that written in Delphi {i.e. Form1.Fun(var S: string): string} and called in the scripts?

hey - there's only one way I know of - the scriptControl has a method addObject(); with wich you can give it more greater functionality. you pass it an object (and the name you want it to be called as from scripts) and then scripts can access it's properties & call it's methods. There's only one catch - the scripting engine only knows how to deal with objects that have an IDispatch, in short ActiveX's. If you've got a pro or better vresion of delphi this is not a problem you can do as I do, just create an automation object that wraps the code you want to call, then use addObject() to inject the automation object into the scripting engine. Of course this only works if you have a ver of delphi that can write activeX ojects (read, more $).

For some time I've been meaning to write an activeX that can grab a delphi object (via runtime type info) and make arbitrary vcl's/objects available to the scripting engine. unfortunately it just hasn't been a priority (free time? what free time? ;p ) so I haven't. I do know, however that it should be possible, so there's a good chance that someone else has. If you can't write your own activeX's it's possible that someone may have done something like I've described & published it at a place like torry's (http://www.torry.net).
