WriteLine Method (FileSystemObject)

Writes a specified string and newline character to a TextStream file.



Required. Always the name of a TextStream object.


Optional. The text you want to write to the file. If omitted, a newline character is written to the file.

The following example illustrates use of the WriteLine method:

var fso, f;
fso = new ActiveXObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject");
f = fso.CreateTextFile("c:\\testfile.txt", true);
f.WriteLine("This is a test.");

Function WriteLineToFile
   Const ForReading = 1, ForWriting = 2
   Dim fso, f
   Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
   Set f = fso.OpenTextFile("c:\testfile.txt", ForWriting, True)
   f.WriteLine "Hello world!" 
   f.WriteLine "VBScript is fun!"
   Set f = fso.OpenTextFile("c:\testfile.txt", ForReading)
   WriteLineToFile = f.ReadAll
End Function
