toArray Method (VBArray) (JavaScript)

Returns a standard JavaScript array converted from a VBArray.

safeArray.toArray( )

The required safeArray reference is a VBArray object.

The conversion translates the multidimensional VBArray into a single dimensional JavaScript array. Each successive dimension is appended to the end of the previous one. For example, a VBArray with three dimensions and three elements in each dimension is converted into a JavaScript array as follows:

Suppose the VBArray contains: (1, 2, 3), (4, 5, 6), (7, 8, 9). After translation, the JavaScript array contains: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9.

There is currently no way to convert a JavaScript array into a VBArray.

The following example consists of three parts. The first part is VBScript code to create a Visual Basic safe array. The second part is JavaScript code that converts the Visual Basic safe array to a JavaScript array. Both of these parts go into the <HEAD> section of an HTML page. The third part is the JavaScript code that goes in the <BODY> section to run the other two parts.

<head>
<script type="text/vbscript">
<!--
Function CreateVBArray()
   Dim i, j, k
   Dim a(2, 2)
   k = 1
   For i = 0 To 2
      For j = 0 To 2
         a(j, i) = k
         document.writeln(k)
         k = k + 1
      Next
      document.writeln("<BR>")
   Next
   CreateVBArray = a
End Function
-->
</script>

<script type="text/javascript">
<!--
function VBArrayTest(vbarray)
{
   var a = new VBArray(vbarray);
   var b = a.toArray();
   var i;
   for (i = 0; i < 9; i++) 
   {
      document.writeln(b[i]);
   }
}
-->
</script>
</head>

<body>
<script type="text/javascript">
<!--
   VBArrayTest(CreateVBArray());
-->
</script>
</body>
