Create instance of ASP JS function in ASP VBS

okay, I have a server-side asp javascript "class":

function Graphic(){
  ...
}

I'm trying to figure out how to create a new instance of it in asp vbs.  I can create an instance in javascript easily enough: "var whatever = new Graphic();", but it's annoying to type:

%><script language="Javascript" runat="server">var whatever = new Graphic();</script><%

every time I want a new instance of the object.

thx

You will have to create the instance in JScript and pass it back to VBScript.
You can make a JScript function for this purpose.
The reason it doesn't work directly is that VBScript doesn't understand JScript's classes.

<script language="Javascript" runat="server">

function Graphic() {
  this.hello = "hello!";
}

function CreateGraphicVB() {
  return new Graphic();
}

</script><%

Dim whatever
Set whatever = CreateGraphicVB()
Response.Write whatever.hello

%>

Good luck.
