Q - question

Evaluate VBScript functions from AutoLISP.

A - answer Sometimes you may prefer to use a VBScript function over AutoLISP as it would be easier, faster or more convenient than the native LISP (VisualLISP) program code.

The evalVBS function is a wrapper for these situations. You can use it to quickly run any VBScript code from inside your LISP routines. Download the evalVBS.LSP source code by CAD Studio from, load it and call it with (evalVBS "myVBScodeString").

;examples (use 'result' for any return value):
;(evalVBS "MsgBox(\"Hello world!\")")
;(setq mystring2 (evalVBS (strcat "result = LCase(\"" mystring1 "\")")))
;(evalVBS "MsgBox(\"VBcommand 1\") : MsgBox(\"VBcommand 2\")")
;(evalVBS "MsgBox(\"VBcommand 1\")\nMsgBox(\"VBcommand 2\")")
;return values:
;"" = no value returned
;nil = failed
;"1.xxxx" = return value as a string
