Dictionary Object

Object that stores data key, item pairs.


A Dictionary object is the equivalent of a PERL associative array. Items can be any form of data, and are stored in the array. Each item is associated with a unique key. The key is used to retrieve an individual item and is usually an integer or a string, but can be anything except an array.

The following code illustrates how to create a Dictionary object:

var y = new ActiveXObject("Scripting.Dictionary");
y.add ("a", "test");
if (y.Exists("a"))
Dim d   ' Create a variable.
Set d = CreateObject("Scripting.Dictionary")
d.Add "a", "Athens"   ' Add some keys and items.
d.Add "b", "Belgrade"
d.Add "c", "Cairo"
