Hi Guys,

Can anybody help me out to modify HTA script code so the current date (month with date) auto update in the title of popup window?

Here is the beginning of HTA script code....

<head>

<title>Subject: IS Alert: Scheduled Maintenance: Friday, January 2 at 6:00 PM to Saturday January 3 at 1:00AM

</title> <body background = "background.jpg">
<HTA:APPLICATION APPLICATIONNAME="NetworkGroup" SCROLL="NO" SINGLEINSTANCE="yes" WINDOWSTATE="normal" SYSMENU="no">

I don't think that you can do that.  I can only get VBscript to 'write' in the <body> and not in the <head> section.

I spoke too soon.  I had something out of order.  This demo shows how to do it.
<HTML>
<HEAD>
<HTA:APPLICATION ID="HelloExample" 
   BORDER="thick" 
   BORDERSTYLE="complex"/>
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="VBScript">
DIM Mydate
Mydate = Date
DIM Mdays 
Mdays = Array("Surfin' Sunday","Moody Monday","Too Much Tuesday","Wild Wednesday","Thrilling Thursday","Finally Friday","Shopping Saturday")
DIM Mmonth
Mmonth = Array("Jan","Feb","Mar","Apr","May","June","July","Aug","Sept","Oct","Nov","Dec")
</SCRIPT>

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="VBScript">
Document.Write "<TITLE>HTA - Hello World " & Mdays(Weekday(Mydate)-1) & "</TITLE>"
</script>

</HEAD>
<BODY>
<H2>HTA - Hello World</H2>
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="VBScript">
Document.Write Mdays(Weekday(Mydate)-1)
</script>

</BODY>
</HTML>
