Displaying Information with JScript .NET
Programs typically display information to a user. The most basic method is to display a text string. A JScript program may display information through different procedures depending on the use of the program. There are three common ways to use JScript: in an ASP.NET page, in a client-side Web page, and from the command line. Some methods for displaying from each environment are discussed here.
