VBArray.lbound

Non-standard. Do not use!
This object is a Microsoft extension and is only supported in Internet Explorer.

The VBArray.lbound method returns the lowest index value used in the specified dimension of a VBArray.

Syntax

safeArray.lbound(dimension)

Remarks

If the VBArray is empty, the lbound method returns undefined. If dimension is greater than the number of dimensions in the VBArray, or is negative, the method generates a "Subscript out of range" error.

Parameters

safeArray
A VBArray object.
dimension Optional
Optional. The dimension of the VBArray for which the lower bound index is wanted. If omitted, lbound behaves as if a 1 was passed.

Example

The following example consists of three parts. The first part is VBScript code to create a Visual Basic safe array. The second part is JavaScript code that determines the number of dimensions in the safe array and the lower bound of each dimension. Since the safe array is created in VBScript rather than Visual Basic, the lower bound will always be zero. Both of these parts go into the <HEAD> section of an HTML page. The third part is the JavaScript code that goes in the <BODY> section to run the other two parts.

<head>  
<script type="text/vbscript">  
<!--  
Function CreateVBArray()  
   Dim i, j, k  
   Dim a(2, 2)  
   k = 1  
   For i = 0 To 2  
      For j = 0 To 2  
         a(j, i) = k  
         k = k + 1  
      Next  
   Next  
   CreateVBArray = a  
End Function  
-->  
</script>  

<script type="text/javascript">  
<!--  
function VBArrayTest(vba){  
   var i;  
   var a = new VBArray(vba);  
   var s = "";  
   for (i = 1; i <= a.dimensions(); i++)  
   {  
      s += "The lower bound of dimension ";  
      s += i + " is ";  
      s += a.lbound(i);  
      s += ".<br />";  
   }  
   return (s);  
}  
-->  
</script>  
</head>  

<body>  
<script type="text/javascript">  
   document.write(VBArrayTest(CreateVBArray()));  
</script>  
</body>
