WshNamed Object

Named PropertyWshArguments Object

Provides access to the named arguments from the command line.


The Named property of the WshArguments object returns the WshNamed object, which is a collection of arguments that have names. This collection uses the argument name as the index to retrieve individual argument values. There are three ways to access sets of command-line arguments.


The following code displays the number of named and unnamed command-line arguments.

<job id="JS">
<script language="JScript">

var argsNamed = WScript.Arguments.Named;
var argsUnnamed = WScript.Arguments.Unnamed;

WScript.Echo("There are " + argsNamed.length + " named arguments.");
WScript.Echo("There are " + argsUnnamed.length + " unnamed arguments.");


<job id="VBS">
<script language="VBScript">

Dim argsNamed, argsUnnamed
Set argsNamed = WScript.Arguments.Named
Set argsUnnamed = WScript.Arguments.Unnamed

WScript.Echo "There are " & argsNamed.Count & " named arguments."
WScript.Echo "There are " & argsUnnamed.Count & " unnamed arguments."
