Can Javascript Add Items To ASP/VBScript Dictionary Object?

Jul 23, 2005

I got two ASP pages. One is ASP email form (I'm using Persist ASP
Email component). Another one has all file links in it. For example,
when user click Outlook course hyperlink. It will pop up another
window with outlook course PDF file. (All PDF files are already in the

What I am trying to do is: When user click the "Add Email" hyperlink,
it will add that course name and filepath into ASP/VBScript Dictioanry
Object. After the user finish and click "Attach to email" button. All
the files will be attached in the email as an attachment.

Because I am not familar with VBScript. So, can Javascript add items
to ASP Dictionary Object?

JavaScript And VBScript

Jul 23, 2005

The user clicks on the delete icon, and gets a JavaScript client-side popup
to confirm that he wants to delete. I am passing this client-side function
a contactID.

Then, I want to send the result of this confirm (true|false) to a
server-side VBScript function, along with the contactID.
The VBScript function will then perform a delete in the database for the
specified contactID.

I have seen many examples about sending stuff back and forth between
JavaScript and VBScript, between server and client, but all the examples I
see are just popping up generic alerts and such. I need to execute some JS
on the client side, return a value, and send it to a VBScript function on
the server side.

Converting VBScript To JavaScript

Dec 3, 2007

I need some help converting this VBScript over to JavaScript so that the calculations will work properly in browsers other than IE.

You can take a look at Turn 2 Design Code: for a feel about what I'm trying to do, but basicly, I just need to calculate the cost of the selected items based on the selected quantity of that item.

The only thing I know about JavaScript is the small Pop-up scripts I've been able to litterally copy and paste to implement. So, please, dont just post code, post an explaination of whats going on and why so I can try to figure it out. Code:

JavaScript Variable In VBScript

Mar 21, 2005

Not sure whether this should go in the JavaScript or VBScript/ASP section, but I'll try here anyway.

I have an ASP include file that contains both VBScript and JavaScript code. The VBScript processes some information and has an onChange event which calls a JavaScript function. Within this javascript function I want to access a recordset and retrieve a value using a variable from the javascript. Here's the code from the JavaScript section. Code:

Javascript Equivalent For Vbscript Date()-1

Mar 28, 2007

I'm looking to return DATE ONLY for yesterday's date. No seconds,
milliseconds. Formatted either yyyy/mm/dd or mm/dd/yyyy. VB does it so
easily Date()-1 will return 03/27/2007 if today is 03/28/2007. Why so
many hoops for javascript? Any ideas?

What's The Vbscript's Cint() Function In Javascript

Jul 20, 2005

I have the following function to get the total qty:

function calttl()
var ttlqty
for (i = 0; i <= document.qtymain.orderdetail.length-1; i++)
ttlqty = ttlqty + document.qtymain.qty.item(i).value


The problem I have is the document.qtymain.qty.item(i).value I get
look like a string, so the number I get for ttlqty is not add up the
number but concatenate.

How do I convert the value I get to a number in javascript?

Accessing And Changing Two Items In An Object?

Jul 7, 2011

I have an object that defines the default color, and then when the color is updated, the different css classes need to be updated as well. So here's what I was trying to do

var colorPicker = {
mainColor: "red",
backgroundColor: this.mainColor + "bkgd",

So problem 1 is I keep getting "undefined" returned for "this.mainColor". If I use colorPicker.mainColor, it hasn't been created yet so it throws an error.Problem two is if I update mainColor from another function, say to make mainColor = "green", then backgroundColor doesn't automatically update.

Dictionary Class

Sep 18, 2002

here's something like an associative array implementation...

File: Dictionary.js
Version: 1.0
Last modified: 09.17.2002
Author: Alexandar Minkovsky ( ; URL:
Copyright: Left
Type: Class
Exports: Dictionary class.
Dependencies: None.
Similar to ASP "Scripting.Dictionary" Object, or an associative array
with somewhat limited functionality. There's a few differences:
- "item" property is replaced by two methods getVal and setVal.
- "key" property is replaced by the setKey method.
As the value of an item can be virtually anything, even another Dictionary object,
the Dictionary Class might be usefull.
If someone have a suggestion or wants the Dictionary class to be extended some way,
feel free to drop me an e-mail.
Tested with: IE4; IE5; IE5.5; IE6; NS4.78; NS6.0; NS6.1; NS6.2; NS7.0; Mozilla 1.0; Mozilla 1.1; Opera 6.0

Portable Dictionary Class

Aug 23, 2007

Can you show me an example of a working dictionary object that is
portable? I would like to have something like:

d = new PortableDict()


subd = new PortableDict()

d.hasKey('a') // true
d.hasKey('c') // false
d.hasKey(subd) // true
d.getValue('a') // 12


Alternatively, is there a programming scheme that allows me to assign
custom properties/attributes to DOM elements? I can do it with
FireFox, but not with IE - it throws an error telling that the given
attribute is not supported. Which is strange because AFAIK in
JavaScript you can freely modify objects, add attributes and methods
on the fly. But it looks like that in IE, HTML DOM elements are not
real JavaScript objects.

Double-click Online Dictionary Definition Script?

Sep 3, 2009

I've always wanted to help second-language English speakers access my site better, by offering a 'double-click on a word' definition in other languages. I had a useful script for some years which was rather dated, and ceased to work if there was an iframe on the page for some reason. Anyway, I found a very good solution at [URL]However, this opens the definition in a new tab/window.

Having experimented with it opening in a popup, I found problems in getting the popup to regain focus if someone had not closed it before looking for another definition. And anyway, popups can get blocked. So I found a nice layer/iframe solution at [URL] though their positioning of the layer is poor, at least in FF because it slides too far down below the bottom of the page. Their script is: [URL]I have modified that to work with dictionarist and stripped out their own floating part of the script, so that it works with position fixed for everything except IE6. But for IE6, I need to still change this from position fixed to position absolute, and then use a script to float the box.I have been trying the script I use successfully elsewhere in a vaguely similar context:


/* Script by:
* Version: 20060303
* Latest version:


which has a call to startFloat(); near the end, which is based on their own floating script nearer the top of [URL] which I have removed. (Doubtless the references to Netscape (RIP) can be removed.)
