VBScript vs JScript
Posted 13 September 2004 - 10:28 AM
both are scripting languages that can be used within ASP pages. there's a lot of documentation out there on using VBscript with ASP. however, VBscript can only run properly on IE. so if you're designing pages which you want to work with other browsers such as netscape, use jscript.

vbscript runs clientside, unless you use it inside asp pages with the runat server directive.
if you are looking for a reason, i'd agree with zarjay, + the fact that vbscript is more adapted to the microsoft system that jscript is.
jscript is far more universal, so i'd advise you to use jscript as much as possible.

I have used Jscript every since I started web development, why did m$ make vbscript? Are there any advantages to using it? Is it abandoned now? I have never seen any site use it.
You may not see VBScripts as it's only supported by IE, I'm not sure of any other browsers who went onboard for this scripting language. So you should consider it abandoned, obsolete...

Stick to JS. It's nice and simple. Ther more simple, the better to code.
