return code from vb script
Does anyone know how to get a returncode from vb script returned to the dialoge manager &retcode?

my vb works from dialog manager:

-WINNT E:\SRTWRK\test.vbs
-TYPE RETCODE= &IORETURN

But I can't get the return code.

I quit the vb as follows.:

WScript.Quit (3)


Is there a way to run it as a function?

like
-set &retcode = (E:\SRTWRK\test.vbs,'i4'); ?

-- My turn:

I don't use WebFocus on Windows, buuuuuut:

-WINNT E:\SRTWRK\test.vbs
-TYPE RETCODE=&RETCODE

might work better. On unix, &RETCODE does not work and instead you have to use &EXITRC. So maybe in windows the proper code would be:

-WINNT E:\SRTWRK\test.vbs
-TYPE EXITRC=&EXITRC

Also, you may want to know that on unix the darned &EXITRC doesn't work for WebFocus releases 5.2.x. Supposedly it is fixed for the 5.3.x series of releases.

Hope this helps rather than confuses.
