VbsCaCadReplace()

This function takes a template in which "symbols" have been marked, these symbols will be replaced with their value using the "VbsCaCadGet" function to retrieve their value.

All symbols are case sensitive and must exist (see the "#DATA for Commands" section) or the function raises an exception.

The function takes these parameters:

  1. The template.

  2. A string which marks the start of a symbol.

  3. A string which marks the end of a symbol.

EXAMPLE

After = VbsCaCadReplace("The installation directory is '(*INSTALLDIR]*)'.", "(*", "*)")
