Active Scripting


Definition: Active Scripting is a term used to define the various script programs that can run within and work with HTML to interact with the user and create a dynamic web page. By itself, HTML is static and can simply present text and graphics. Using active scripting languages such as JavaScript or VBScript the developer can accomplish things like updating the date and time displayed on the page, popping information up in a separate window or creating scrolling text with important information to go across the screen.


About Author

I have a passion for technology and gadgets--with a focus on Microsoft and security--and a desire to help others understand how technology can affect or improve their lives. I also love spending time with my wife, 7 kids, 3 dogs, 4 cats, 3 rabbits, 2 ferrets, pot-bellied pig and sulcata tortoise, and I like to think I enjoy reading and golf even though I never find time for either. You can contact me directly at For more from me, you can follow me on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn.
