toArray Method (Windows Scripting - JScript)

Returns a standard JScript 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 JScript 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 JScript array as follows:

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

There is currently no way to convert a JScript 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 JScript code that converts the Visual Basic safe array to a JScript array. Both of these parts go into the <HEAD> section of an HTML page. The third part is the JScript code that goes in the <BODY> section to run the other two parts.

<HEAD>
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="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 LANGUAGE="JScript">
<!--
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 LANGUAGE="JScript">
<!--
   VBArrayTest(CreateVBArray());
-->
</SCRIPT>
</BODY>
