Hi again Experts!

I'm learning VBScript and there's a construction I've used in other languages that I need to find the VBScript version of.

It's       boolean_variable("Yes", "No")       so if the variable is true it returns Yes and viceversa.

Also if I've got an integer variable how do I get text from an array of strings?  And how do I create that array?

Thanks!
Peter

if myBoolean then
  'True Part here
else
  'False Part here
end if

You can also use it as:
if not myBoolean then
 'False part here
end if


To create an array of 3 strings:

Dim myStringArray(2) as string
myStringArray(0)  = "Line 1"
myStringArray(0)  = "Line 2"
myStringArray(0)  = "Line 3"

Another way would be:
Dim myStringArray() As String
Dim i As Integer

For i = 0 To 2
    If i = 0 Then
        ReDim myStringArray(i)
    Else
        ReDim Preserve myStringArray(i)
    End If
    myStringArray(i) = "This is line " & i
Next i

What do you mean by "Also if I've got an integer variable how do I get text from an array of strings?"?

To return the strings created above:
for i = lbound(myStringArray) to ubound(myStringArray)
  msgbox myStringArray(i)
next i

You can also use

NewString=If(oldString="ABC","True results","False Results")

...and if you know your data upfront, you can create an array using

myArray=Array("Item1","Item2","Item3")

and loop through it using

For each item in myArray
  cboItems.Add item
Next
