VBScript problem in Finalbuilder action builder

I am trying to create a form in finalbuilder that uses VBscript, something I never used.

I need to parse the items in a listbox so am using a for loop.

How do I read the items in the listbox and assign to a string?

I know it seems simple but I still need it.

Thanks

David

Hi!

The attached code is for an HTA which contains html and vbscript.

As you can see, the line 21 code is very similar to the select in your code but with normal brackets.

Give that a try. :-)

Cheers!

<html>
<head>
<title>My HTML application</title>
<HTA:APPLICATION
  APPLICATIONNAME="My HTML application"
  ID="MyHTMLapplication"
  VERSION="1.0"/>
</head>

<script language="VBScript">

Sub Window_OnLoad
  'This method will be called when the application loads
  'Add your code here
End Sub
'Displays all the items selected in a multi-select listbox

Sub RunScript
    For i = 0 to (Dropdown1.Options.Length - 1)
        If (Dropdown1.Options(i).Selected) Then
            strComputer = strComputer & Dropdown1.Options(i).Value & vbcrlf
        End If
    Next
    Msgbox strComputer
End Sub  
Sub OnClickButtonShowSelected()
RunScript
  'This method will be called when button "ShowSelected" is clicked
  'Add your code here
End Sub
</script>

<body bgcolor="white">

<!--Add your controls here-->
<select size="3" name="DropDown1" multiple>
<option value="1">Option 1</option>
<option value="2">Option 2</option>
<option value="3">Option 3</option>
<option value="4">Option 4</option>
</select>

<input type="button" name="ShowSelected" id="ShowSelected" value="Show Selected" onclick="OnClickButtonShowSelected">
<!--{{InsertControlsHere}}-Do not remove this line-->
</body>
</html>

The code below gives me an error "Expected end of statement"
Function isUniquePath(Argument1)

isUniquePath = true

dim iCount
dim sSelected 
dim i

iCount = Page.lbPaths.items.count

if(iCount > 0) then
for i = 1 to (iCount)

sSelected = Page.lbPaths.options[i].value
next

end if

end function

At first glance I think it's the square brackets in line 14.
More soon... :-)

The first suggestion might be correct, try changing
sSelected = Page.lbPaths.options[i].value

Open in new window

to
sSelected = Page.lbPaths.options(i).value

Open in new window
