how to pass in a list of string/numbers into a vbs function

I have the following vbs function that accepts a parameter array

Function TEST(Arr())
   k=ubound(Arr)
   msgbox(k)
End Function

The calling function in this system is dynamically generated as a string and then a msscript control invokes it.

How can I call the function and pass in the array by init its values as a string using the following syntax?

Dim numbers = New Integer() {1, 2, 4, 8}
Dim doubles = {1.5, 2, 9.9, 18}

Example:

TEST({1,2,3,4}) '<--how can i pass these in as literals?

Here is the correct VBS syntax:

TEST(Array(1,2,3,4))

Function TEST(Arr())
   k=ubound(Arr)
   msgbox(k)
End Function
