i have created a com object that raises events.  one of the ways shown to test this is with a vbscript run by WScipt.exe.

the problem is that the script will exit before any events are raised .. before the sub that handles the event.  how can i keep the script open long enough to get the events?

i am calling the script from a command prompt:  wscript.exe test.vbs


here is my code;
set obj = WScript.CreateObject("TestApp.Agent", "agent_")

MsgBox "Value from Init is " & obj.Init
MsgBox "Status: " + obj.StatusMesssage
MsgBox "New Session Id: " + obj.NewSessionId
MsgBox "Len: " + CStr(Len(obj.NewSessionId))

if Len(obj.NewSessionId) > 0 then
	obj.Monitor
end if


Sub agent_AgentEvent(val)
     MsgBox "Event fired - val is " & val
End Sub

You'll have to implement a waiting loop, endless or with a stop condition:
Dim obj, bQuit

set obj = WScript.CreateObject("TestApp.Agent", "agent_")

MsgBox "Value from Init is " & obj.Init
MsgBox "Status: " + obj.StatusMesssage
MsgBox "New Session Id: " + obj.NewSessionId
MsgBox "Len: " + CStr(Len(obj.NewSessionId))

if Len(obj.NewSessionId) > 0 then
	obj.Monitor
end if

bQuit = false
do
  WScript.Sleep 100
loop until bQuit

Sub agent_AgentEvent(val)
     MsgBox "Event fired - val is " & val
     bQuit = true
End Sub

Open in new window
