This section is a brief tutorial on VBScript. We’ll walk through the fundamentals, and along the way you will learn how to add VBScript to your existing web pages, the structure of the VBScript language, and how to use event-driven programming within your HTML documents.

What Is VBScript?

VBScript, Microsoft’s Visual Basic Scripting Edition, is a scaled down version of Visual Basic.

While it doesn’t offer the functionality of Visual Basic, it does provide a powerful, easy to learn tool that can be used to add interaction to your web pages.

If you are already experienced in either Visual Basic or Visual Basic for Applications, you will find working with VBScript easy and should be immediately productive.

Don’t be concerned if you haven’t worked in another version of Visual Basic. VBScript is easy to learn, even for the novice developer.
