  • Blog Post: Introducing the Windows 7 Resource Kit PowerShell Pack

    Since I work on the PowerShell team, I’ve been lucky enough to get a couple of years jump start on producing PowerShell V2 scripts and modules. With every new script I write in V2 I get more and more amazed by the possibilities in PowerShell. I’ve discovered how to do many cool things that, as some of...
  • Blog Post: Update-TypeData, ISE CTP3 vs ISE RC, and Teched2009 Demos

    There were quite a few name changes in the ISE Object Model from CTP3 to RC Using Update-TypeData, we can achieve some parity between the two We can add aliases to the CTP3 version to make it look like the RC Version For example, <Name>System.Management.Automation.Host.PSGHost</Name>...
  • Blog Post: Checkout Out-WPF

    Joel (Jaykul) Bennett has a cool post HERE where he is experimenting with some GUI scripting toolkits and a utility Out-WPF.  You can also checkout a Screencast of Out-WPF working HERE .  It is very cool and very short so give it a look-see. Scripting GUIs with PowerShell is going to be a REALLY...
  • Blog Post: Windows PowerShell CTP2 to CTP3 Conversion Guide

    I write a lot of scripts, and, since I blog some of what I write, my home computer has been running Windows PowerShell CTP2 since it came out. Since CTP3 has a number of changes from CTP2, I've got to update my home script library to work with CTP3. While this guide might not have every change that happened...
  • Blog Post: WPF & PowerShell - Part 7 (Sharing Hosts)

    Well here we are at the end of a week of WPF.  We've learned how to create basic, simple user interactive interfaces.  We've seen a brief glimmer of the golden UI layer that is WPF, and have seen how we can use PowerShell to add easy interactivity to XAML.  You've seen tricks to help you...
  • Blog Post: WPF &amp; PowerShell - Part 6 (Running Functions in the Background)

    For the next part in the series, I've introduced another update to the Show-Control function you first met in Part 4. In this update, I've added the ability to run the control you've created in a background runspace as a switch. In order to do this, Show-Control employs a neat little trick. It actually...
  • Blog Post: WPF & PowerShell - Part 5 ( Using WPF & PowerShell Modules)

    In the last post we met XAML, and I gave you a core function (Show-Control) that will help you make interactive WPF controls quite nicely in PowerShell. You can see that, by using Show-Control, it is possible to reduce the size and complexity of a script that creates UI. Today, I'll show you how to...
  • Blog Post: PowerShell and WPF: WTF

    A number of people are confused by the WPF/PowerShell series and are "asking WTF?". Aaron has a blog entry, WPF and PowerShell Series - I don't get it . Caywen left a comment on the first in posting saying, "Ugh, I could make a peanut butter and squid sandwich, but that doesn't mean you should." (I like...
  • Blog Post: WPF & PowerShell -- Part 4 (XAML & Show-Control)

    We're not halfway through our week of WPF, and I'm pretty sure at this point that you have an all right grounding in the basics of WPF & PowerShell, but so far, the scripts haven't really been very much like most PowerShell scripts, and the UIs have not been like most WPF UIs. The scripts have been...
  • Blog Post: WPF & PowerShell -- Part 3 (Handling Events)

    So far, most of the wpf and powershell scripts you have seen have seen just show you something, but don’t do anything that interactive. However, In order to make real applications you need to be able to handle events. Luckily, PowerShell can make that pretty easy. It is possible to cast a script...
  • Blog Post: WPF & PowerShell – Part 2 (Exploring WPF (and the rest of .NET) with Scripts)

    In my previous post, I showed you how to create “Hello World” scripts using Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) and Windows PowerShell. While “Hello World” is relatively easy to write with WPF, it is only the tip of the iceberg of the types of quick user interfaces you can write. Windows Presentation...
  • Blog Post: WPF & PowerShell – Part 1 ( Hello World & Welcome to the Week of WPF )

    Welcome to the Week of WPF. During the next 7 days, I’ll help show you how you can use WPF and PowerShell together.
