Write Method (Windows Script Host)

Write Method (Windows Script Host)


Sends a string to an output stream.



StdOut or StdErr text stream objects.


String value indicating the text you want to write to the stream.

The StdIn, StdOut, and StdErr properties and methods work when running the script with the CScript.exe host executable file only. An "Invalid Handle" error is returned when run with WScript.exe. The position pointer moves to the point just beyond the last character in strText.

Legacy Code Example

The following code demonstrates the use of the Write method.

Dim strInput
strInput = WScript.StdIn.ReadAll
WScript.StdOut.Write strInput
var strInput = WScript.StdIn.ReadAll();
