Your link comes up as an empty page for me, so
I don't know what it says.
Last I knew vbsEdit was free to use indefintely in
the demo version, but I don't know if that's still true.
WEB-ED Editor. (Disclaimer: This is my own software.)
WEB-ED provides "intellisense" for any object. There's a
built-in object browser. You can pick any registered
object and add intellisense for it. You can also edit
the auto-completion menu. In addition, WEB-ED has
customizable context help for methods and properties;
Basic per-line debugging. And variable colorcoding and
variable auto-case-correction. The last two features are
very handy for avoiding time-wasting typos. I don't know
of any other editor that provides variable color coding.
I think PrimalScript might provide it within subs, but I
haven't looked at that one for quite some time. And the
price of PrimalScript is beyond absurd. Last I saw I think
it was $300. http://www.jsware.net/jsware/webed.php5
WEB-ED is $30. The trial version used to have a file
length limit, but I recently changed that. The trial version
now just has a splash screen and no support. If you
want to put up with that you can use it for free.
I think that MS Office and Visual Studio used to
accomodate VBScript with a little fiddling, but I'm
not sure about that. I have VS6, but it never seemed
worth the trouble to explore the options. It's quite
a behemoth to fire up just for scripting.
Other options: There are lots of free editors around.
Many have color coding (syntax highlighting) for
VBScript. That might be sufficient for your needs.
But very few have intellisense/auto-completion. What
you'll find is mainly solid, bare-bones editors. You can
recognize them because they typically claim to support
30-50 languages. They can provide that "support"
because all they really do is to provide rudimentary
color coding of keywords. But that in itself is a big
help compared to just using Notepad.
