I see you can set a jobinfo variable from vb script, but I can't seem to get it to read one. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Try the following code in your VBScript:
Code:
watch.setjobinfo 8,"Jobinfo 8 is now set to this string"
watch.showmessage watch.expandstring("%8")
This sample demonstrates how to set JobInfo 8 to the specified string, and how to display it in a pop-up dialog.

Hope that helps,

To read the value, use the following code (and in this sample, display it in a dialog box):
Code:
watch.showmessage watch.getjobInfo(8)
Remember: when setting a variable with VBScript, you are using a procedure which doesn't return a value. Therefore, you can't use parentheses around the parameters.

But when you're reading the value, you're using a function that is expected to return a value, which is why you must use parentheses around the parameter. It's one of those VB peculiarities we've all learned to love...


Hope that helps,
