    vbscript to javascript

    dmurphy
      In Dreamweaver, does anyone know if you can convert a vbscript to javascript and it fo how? If Dreamweaver can't be used is there any other way?

          Nope.
          You cannot accurately convert any language to any other without human
          intervention.

            I know I will have to do some work to get this done. I am just asking can part of it be done since I do not know vbscipt that well?

              Do you know asp JavaScript? or JSP redefine your site for whatever server
              language you want to use open your .asp page and then reapply the sever
              behaviors and dreamweaver will rewrite the code for whatever language you
              want. But you should back up your site before trying anything like this.

                Here's the problem - javascript is client-side. VBScript is server-side.
                Javascript can do things that VBScript (at least server-side) cannot, and
                vice-versa.

                What is the problem you are trying to solve?

                    Not if he's talking about ASP which supports either VB or JS.
