Default Whats the best VBS editor

Hi All.
I've normally used Visual Studio when I'm coding as I'm usually writing ASP, CSS and scripts.

I've not done any scripting for about 1 year and am just getting into it again. Whats the best VBS editor (yeah I know i'm gonna get hundreds of you saying Notepad!).

I'm looking for something that has auto-complete and prefably understands the WSH and its objects and veriables.

Thanks in advance.

P.S. Doesn't have to be a freebie piece of software!

Infact, Notepad is a real good editor for anything and anyone who has reall good memory power and that make you feel confident too.

You can try something called adersoft's VBSEdit.

Try downloading that from www.adersoft.com or do a search on google, you would find a lot there.

I use this and feel quite comfortable with it. But not sure if that has auto-complete. I hate that, that makes a programmer the laziest in this world and makes you have a short/poor memory results in always letting you search (using google) for syntax/commands from somewhere.

I use Sapien's PrimalScript. It is an excellent autocomplete IDE that supports so many scripting and other languages it is hard to comprehend. It also color codes your script, and has drop in components like IF THEN, DO WHILE etc.

Go to: http://www.sapien.com/products.aspx

It is well worth the $180.00 or so.

PrimalScript is a good choice. U can also insert help file of your own. Intelisense is working good u just have to set it up.
