hello EE warriors...

quick question.
How do I return an array from a VBScript function?

See code below:
Function todayslist

    Dim list(3)

    list(0) = "NBC Last Comic Standing"
    list(1) = "ABC Late Night with David Letterman"
    list(2) = "CBS Presidental Speech" 

    dim event1
    dim event2
    dim event3

    event1 = "NBC Last Comic Standing"
    event2 = "ABC Late Night with David Letterman"
    event3 = "CBS Presidental Speech"


    return list


End Function


    Dim todaysevents
    todaysevents = todayslist()
    if todaysevents.count > 0 Then
        Response.write("<ul>")
        For each Item in todaysevents
            Response.write("<li>" + Item)
        Next
        Response.write("/<ul>")
    end if

Open in new window

Function todayslist

    Dim list(3)

    list(0) = "NBC Last Comic Standing"
    list(1) = "ABC Late Night with David Letterman"
    list(2) = "CBS Presidental Speech" 

    dim event1
    dim event2
    dim event3

    event1 = "NBC Last Comic Standing"
    event2 = "ABC Late Night with David Letterman"
    event3 = "CBS Presidental Speech"


    return list


End Function


    Dim todaysevents
    todaysevents = todayslist()
    if todaysevents.count > 0 Then
        Response.write("<ul>")
        For each Item in todaysevents
            Response.write("<li>" + Item)
        Next
        Response.write("/<ul>")
    end if

In my second post, with the ubound() changes, you still got "object required"?
