12.15    VB Script

VBScript (pronounced "Vee Bee Script") is provided for advanced users already familiar with VB Script used for many web sites.  This engineering manual doesn't go into detail on VB Script commands and assumes the user is already familiar with VB Script. VB Script is augmented using ACTION commands similar to those used with Tcl.

WebAccess uses the VB Script engine that is part of the Windows Operating system.  The Windows OS on the SCADA Node affects Global Scripts and ViewDAQ.   If VB scripting is somehow disabled on the SCADA node, VB Scripts won't run as Global scripts or Local Scripts in ViewDAQ.

The Windows OS the Client (web browser) affects VB Script running in VIEW.  If VB scripting is somehow disabled on the client, VB Scripts won't run as Local Scripts in VIEW.

Note that the Tcl engine is installed as part of the Client Plug-in (Active X control). WebAccess does not install a VB script engine.
