WSH » WshCollection » Item

object[.Item] (varIndex)
Receives the index of a specific element to be returned.

The Item method is the default method of the WshCollection object. It takes a single argument which, although of type Variant, only returns useful results when it is a Long. When passed an argument of type Long, this method returns the element in the collection at the specified position. Indexing starts at zero. If there is no element at the requested index, a "Subscript out of range" error is generated.


Set WshNetwork = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Network")
Set clDrives = WshNetwork.EnumNetworkDrives()
For intI=0 To clDrives.Count - 1 Step 2
    WScript.Echo "Letter", clDrives(intI)
    WScript.Echo "maps to drive", clDrives.Item(intI+1)
Letter P:
maps to drive \\FileServer\public
Letter Q:
maps to drive \\FileServer\upload

This VBScript code displays the first and second arguments passed to the current script. The output shown would be observed if the script were invoked with two command-line arguments: "abc" and "def". The example also illustrates both forms of syntax that can be used to call the default Item method.
