Hi All,

Could someone please convert the following VBScript/ASP code to JavaScript/JSP:
<%

...

<script language=vbscript>
Sub SendToWord
      dim Obj , tObj , st2
      set tObj = createobject("Word.Application")
      tObj.Visible = True
      Set Obj = tObj.WordBasic
      st2 = document.all.item("wordtext").innerTEXT
      Obj.FileNew
      Obj.appmaximize 1
      'obj.centerpara
      obj.fontsize 8
      obj.font  "Courier New"
      obj.insert st2
      obj.font "Courier New"
End Sub
</script>


<script language=vbscript>
            call SendToWord()
</script>

...

%>

TIA

hold on, a closer look seems this is client side vbscript. jsp is server side programming. you cannot convert this kid of vbscript to jsp. but you can still use it in jsp page, isn't it? what's your problem?

this is client side thing, it is nothing to do with jsp. your vbscript should continue to work as long as you convert rest of asp to the jsp.

Can VBScript be rendered from a Linux Server?
How would the code look if it was converted to JavaScript?

vbscript and javascript are all client side language. the server is not going to render anything, it simple send then to browser as is.

the diff is only IE support vbscript, no other browser does. in terms of the converting vbscript to javascrip, you'll have much better luck in javascript forum.

there is another alternative, you can create a word doc at server side and send the word doc to client using poi:
