Rohida Active scripting is currently disabled in your browser, making it difficult for you to receive the best service possible.To enable scripting, you need to make a simple adjustment to your browser settings.Active Scripting is the technology used in Windows to implement component-based scripting support.It is based on COM and allows installation of additional scripting engines in the form of COM modules.

rlemire Rohida;

This particular forum section is for Activ E-Book Compiler and the Activ E-Book compiler has it's own scripting language named "Activ Script" (Activ -- without an "e" ). Therefore, in this forum, questions about Activ Script need to be treated very differently than questions about Windows or Browser scripting.

Darish The concept of Active Scripting is to define a simple interface which defines how a language connects to the world around it-to a hosting application.Active Scripting is the technology used in Windows to implement component-based scripting support.It is based on COM and allows installation of additional scripting engines in the form of COM modules.

Jopes Active Scripting is the technology used in Windows to implement component-based scripting support.ActiveScript is the term which is used to describe a set of interfaces that permit a scripting language interpreter to be used by an application that wants to provide scripting capability to the user.It is an abstraction mechanism which allows the user to specify what scripting language to use without having to change the application.

rlemire If you ever wondered why new participants are referred to as "Newbies" here is a good example. Just because someone appears to know whats what -- doesn't mean that they do. Contributors who want to contribute, should first make sure they understand the subject. As pointed out earlier, the topic of discussion is Activ Scripting Help and it is posted in the Activ E-Book Forum.

For those "Newbies" who don't know better, "Activ E-Book is a unique eBook compiler that is used for creating eBooks. One thing that makes Activ E-Book so unique is the fact that it has it's own "built in" scripting language. If a user reads the Activ E-Book help section they will discover that this unique scripting language is named "Activ Script". (you'll notice there is no "e" in "Activ".  

While "Activ Script" is a scripting language akin to other Windows/Browser scripting languages in principle -- specifically it has unique properties that only apply to the Activ E-Book Compiler. Therefore when ziffgone created the original post -- he did not make a spelling mistake in his post... He was specifically asking about the unique Activ Script features found in the Activ E-Book Compiler.

Activ Script is specifically designed to add functionality to an Activ E-Book. Many of these functions do not have a compliment in other scripting languages. For example there is an Activ Script command named ENTERPASSWORD() that can be used to initiate an eBook's password entry screen. This command will not be found in any other scripting language.

With Activ Script, Activ E-Book authors can run external windows programs, create, save and read "ini/text" files (on a customer's computer). Activ Script also allows you to store and retrieve variables in your eBook, run printers, create forms, control eBook navigation and display message boxes.

Many of these functions can be duplicated with a scripting language like JavaScript but many are completely unique. For example, being able to save the results of a "test" on a users computer is nearly impossible with JavaScript. Saving data to a file can be done with "Windows Scripting Host" but security alerts would be triggered.

In conclusion, the specific subject of Activ Script should not be confused with a generic reference to Active Scripting.
