Msgbox GetAllObjectValue(“ZMASTER”)

Function GetAllObjectValue(strObject)
 Set process = GetObject(“winmgmts://./root/novadigm:NVD_Agent”)
 Set method = process.Methods_ (“GetValues”)
 Set inParameters = method.inParameters.SpawnInstance_()
 inParameters.Path = strObject
 Set outParameters = process.ExecMethod_ (“GetValues”, inParameters)
 For i=0 to UBound(outParameters.value)
  GetAllObjectValue = GetAllObjectValue & outParameters.property(i) & ” – ” & outParameters.value(i) & vbcrlf

VB Scripting with Radia Objects

Part 1:

Radia objects can be manipulated using Vbscripts. Here I share an Example script for you. Hope this script can give you a basic idea about how you can use vbscript to control Radia Objects.

 Example 1:

 Read an EDM file :

 ‘ Read from an EDM file.

‘Syntax to given: GetRadiaObjectValue (Syntax EDM file,heap,variable)

 On error resume next

MsgBox “LASTRUN = ” & GetRadiaObjectValue(“LOCALCFG”,0,”LASTRUN”)

 Function GetRadiaObjectValue(str_Object,str_Heap,str_Property)

 Set process = GetObject(“winmgmts://./root/novadigm:NVD_Agent”)

 Set method = process.Methods_ (“GetValue”)

 Set inParameters = method.inParameters.SpawnInstance_()

 inParameters.Path = str_Object

 inParameters.Index = str_heap

 inParameters.Property = str_Property

 Set outParameters = process.ExecMethod_ (“GetValue”, inParameters)

 GetObjectValue = outParameters.Value

End Function
