B.2 - Appendix B - Example usage outside call routing - Simple VBS/WSF script

Recommended Posts

New in v1.1.0



This example demonstrates how to make use of Persistent Variables in a WSF (Windows Scripting Host File) file, i.e. a VBScript file.


You will find it in the download package in the following folder

  • \examples\External\vbs


This little script is meant to be connected with a shortcut SwyxIt! skin element. By clicking on that shortcut the .wsf file will be started.


By starting this .wsf file the current status of the installed Night Switch example (new: also part of this package) will be toggled.




<job id="Toggle_Example">      
<script language="VBScript" src="PersistentVariables.vbs"/>
<script language="VBScript">
' configure the complete db connect string
g_sPersistentVariableConnectString = _
	"Provider=sqloledb;" & _
	"Data Source=WS-WELLIGE04;" & _
	"Initial Catalog=" & PERSISTENT_VARIABLE_DATABASE & ";" & _
	"User Id=PersistentVariables;" & _

' initialize persistent variable
Dim NightSwitch
Set NightSwitch     = new PersistentVariable
NightSwitch.Name    = "NightSwitch"
NightSwitch.Default = 0

if NightSwitch.Value = 0 then
	NightSwitch.Value = 1
	NightSwitch.Value = 0
end if

Set NightSwitch = Nothing




You can call this .wsf file directly from a command prompt:

C:\PersistentVariables> Toggle


You have to make sure, that the PersistenVariables.vbs file is in the same folder as the Toggle.wsf file.


Please find a complete explanation of the usage of persistent variables outside of call routing scripts here:
