VBScript Book Recommendation

I need a recommendation for a good client side scripting book; preferably VBScript and published recently.  I am leaning towards VBScript because I already know VB but have never coded in any variant of Java.  Is there a reason why JavaScript is the focus of this forum? 

Initially, all I want do do is some simple things on the browser so that I can avoid some server round trips.  Things like enable/disable controls, make them visible/invisible, and maybe move them around.  Later, I will want to do some more sophisticated things.  This means that any book recommended should cover a range of topics from simple to sophisticated.

Hmmm.  I did not know that VBScript was considered old technology.  I am writing an ASP.Net app.  Will VBScript still work or should I just bite the bullet and start learning JavaScript?

vbscript only works in IE.

should I just bite the bullet and start learning JavaScript?


Yes you should learn javascript.  If you learn javascript you get a bonus.  Javascript syntax shares many similarities to the syntax of c#.



Good Luck

When you need to do some clientside scripting, use JavaScript. However as in Ajax.Net, most of the JavaScript is prepackaged for you, hence although your pages may be using JavaScript you will rarely by writing it the JavaScript yourself.

The code behind your page is typically either VB.NET or C#. If your background is in VB Script or VB6, then stick with VB.NET until you are familiar with the Dot Net framework. Learning C# is then very simple.

Could you recommend an good ADO.NET book
Hi all, I need to get an book about Ado.net.

Address Book
Name: P Warren Product: Thunderbird Summary: Address Book - dragging from one book to another for multiple address book entries Comments: In the earlier version of Thunderbird it was possible to drag an address from one address book to another and it would remain in both books. This saved so much time but is not availble in later versions. Now an address has to be typed out again and again for each address book to which it is being allocated. There is also no "copy/paste" mechanism for transferring to another address book which would be another way of overco...
