All the programming or scripting languages support Operators which are used to do some action. For example “+” is used to add two numbers as well as concatenate two strings. We might need to compare values in two variables, then use < , >, ==, etc. These are some examples of operators. Let us have a look into the operators supported by vbscript.
Following are the different category of operators in vbscript:
- Arithmetic operators
- Logical operators
- Comparison operators
- Concatenation operators
These are used to conduct arithmetic operations such as ADD, SUBTRACT, MULTIPLY, DIVIDE, etc.
Dim sum,subtract,mult,divd,res,Z,md A=cint(inputbox("Enter value for A")) B=cint(inputbox("Enter value for B")) sum = A+B subtract=B-A mult=A*B divd=B/A res="Summation of A & B : "&sum&vbnewline&_ "Subtraction of B from A : "&subtract&vbnewline&_ "Multiplication of A & B : "&mult&vbnewline&_ "Division of B by A : "&divd&vbnewline msgbox res 'To demonstrate Exponentiation X=cint(inputbox("Enter value for X")) Y=cint(inputbox("Enter value for Y")) Z=X^Y '5 raised to power 2 = 25 : X=5, Y =2 should result in 25 msgbox "Exponentiation of Y to X : "&Z 'To demonstrate Modulus 'if X=11 and Y=2 then answer should be 1 - X is divided by Y then the remainder is the result X=cint(inputbox("Enter value for X")) Y=cint(inputbox("Enter value for Y")) md= X mod Y msgbox "Modulus of X, Y : "&md
The above example demonstrates many things including arithmetic operators, built-in functions cint, inputbox, and msgbox.
