If the scripting engine is in the initialized state, no code will actually be evaluated during this call; rather, such code is queued and executed when the scripting engine is transitioned into (or through) the started state. Because execution is not allowed in the initialized state, it is an error to call this method with the SCRIPTTEXT_ISEXPRESSION flag when in the initialized state.

The scriptlet can be an expression, a list of statements, or anything allowed by the script language. For example, this method is used in the evaluation of the HTML <SCRIPT> tag, which allows statements to be executed as the HTML page is being constructed, rather than just compiling them into the script state.

The code passed to this method must be a valid, complete portion of code. For example, in VBScript it is illegal to call this method once with Sub Function(x) and then a second time with End Sub. The parser must not wait for the second call to complete the subroutine, but rather must generate a parse error because a subroutine declaration was started but not completed.
