access vbscript variable in javascript within .hta file

Msg#: 4401012 posted 8:43 pm on Dec 23, 2011 (gmt 0)

I need to get javascript to recognize a vbscript variable and it's currently not working for me within an HTA application.

<script type="vbscript">

Dim variable
variable = test


<script type="text/javascript">

var variable = <%= variable%>;


The code above doesn't carry the original vbscript variable over. I've also tried

var variable = '<%= variable %>';

However this just populates the value within the quotes into the javscript variable

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Perhaps you could use VBScript to store it in a hidden form field and then retrieve it in JavaScript.
