WshArguments Object

Arguments PropertyWScript Object

Provides access to the entire collection of command-line parameters — in the order in which they were originally entered.


The WshArguments object is a collection returned by the WScript object's Arguments property (WScript.Arguments). Two of the WshArguments object's properties are filtered collections of arguments — one contains the named arguments (querying this property returns a WshNamed object), the other contains the unnamed arguments (querying this property returns a WshUnnamed object). There are three ways to access sets of command-line arguments.


The following code displays the command-line parameters in the WshArguments object.

Set objArgs = WScript.Arguments
For I = 0 to objArgs.Count - 1
   WScript.Echo objArgs(I)
objArgs = WScript.Arguments;
for (i = 0; i < objArgs.length; i++)
