Array Function


Returns a Variant containing an array.




The required arglist argument is a comma-delimited list of values that are assigned to the elements of an array contained with the Variant. If no arguments are specified, an array of zero length is created.

The notation used to refer to an element of an array consists of the variable name followed by parentheses containing an index number indicating the desired element.

All arrays in Visual Basic Scripting Edition (VBScript) are zero-based.

The Array function is used to create single-dimension arrays. For information about multi-dimensional arrays, see VBScript Variables.


A variable that is not declared as an array can still contain an array. Although a Variant variable containing an array is conceptually different from an array variable containing Variant elements, the array elements are accessed in the same way.

The following example illustrates the use of the Array function.

' Create a single-dimension array and assign three elements.
Dim A
A = Array(10,20,30)' Set B to the third element in the array (which is 30).' The array is zero-based.
B = A(2)
