re: help with HTA GetObject function RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello All,

        I am new to HTA and window scripting but I am learning and I find out that HTA and window scripting is more widely used and powerful than unix shell scripting. I have a very basic question on HTA and window scripting that I would like to seek your helps and expertise. In my very basic  HTA code , I just want to get the window shell script on my F network drive and display it used MsgBox for my sake of debugging and seeing if I get anything by :
                        

               Set oParms = GetObject("script:\\myNetworkDrive\Apps\xmlParm.wsc")

               MsgBox (oParms)

               But I got an error where MsgBox (oParms) was and it said object did not support this kind of property.

               I believe that I did something wrong or I have missed some important points so If you could help by pointing out what's wrong with my code  then it would be great.

    Many Thanks!!!

  • You cannot display an object with MsgBox. 

    Don't waste time learning HTAs.  They are obsolete.  Use PowerShell.  HTAs will likely not be part of the next version of Windows.
