i have been the last days in Singapore at the PSConfAsia 2016 and had 3 Sessions:
- Powershell GUI with XAML
- PS Centralised Repo Server
- Setting up JEA effectively
It has been a great event with great speakers. Here i attached my material of my 3 slots for the interested ones 😉 here
Video material is going to follow.
i have very nice news for you!
I managed to exchange the integrated Text-editor of PSGUI with AvalonEdit.
Take a look at this fantastic new features:
- Searching (Ctrl+F)
- Better Jumping to the EventHandlers
- Unlimited Undo and Redo
- and more
Also i did lots of BugFixes, added some Examples and some new little functions – like the Button “Open in ISE”, which opens all 3 DialogFiles in the Powershell_ISE or the “Open”-Button for the Dialog-Folders and also some improvements in the dialogs for “New-Dialog” and “Rename-Dialog”.
A imporant hint here – to create new Dialogs or rename Dialogs you have to start the PSGUI-Manager with Admin-Rights. For example – out of a ISE / Powershell console, which has been opened with Admin rights. I will address this topic later on.
I personally think, that this was one of the most valuable changes in the last time. But keep tuned – lots of functions are still planned, before we get to version 1.0.
- Export/Import Dialogs
- Creating GUI-Packages
- more Assistance for GUI-Creators
- more Examples to show more complicated stuff
- and probably – Intellisense – but lets see
And last but not least:
Installation is now as easy as any possible – with PowershellGallery – described here.
now you can gather the installation data also in the PowershellGallery!
Herefore you just need Powershell v5 / WMF5.
The commands are as follow:
This installation though needs admin rights (also later on) because it is installed in the ModulePath in ProgramFiles. To get around this you can install it into your UserPath this way:
Install-Module PSGUI -Scope CurrentUser
And then you are ready to go!
i have been asked to create a little intro to the project PSGUI.
So in this post i want to show you step by step how you can work with PSGUI and get it to work.
today i want to show you, how you can debug XAML GUIs created with PSGUI.
And to be honest – this is absolutely easy! You don´t think so? Take a look below.
today i have pretty good news for you!
Long time ago i started the project PSGUI, but i had not much time and power to create a stable version, because i had been working and training hard for Microsoft in the last months.
But – luckily i had again some time to get progress in this nice project and here is the next version!
- Download as Zip
- Unblock in NTFS Properties
- Link on Desktop [or] Link in folder [or] Powershell.exe – Start-PSGUIManager
- have fun – till now
But what was actually PSGUI about? Below a short summary – detailed instructions will follow.
some time passed since my last update, but now i am arriving with a whole bunch of demo scripts for everyone.
I have been at the PSConfEU and had two speaking slots there:
- PS-Repo Server
- Deep Dive XAML-GUIs in PS
My good friend Sebstian Klenk, Technical Evangelist Microsoft, did two interviews in german with me and summed everything up in his blog.
There you can get also the material of my sessions and more – i recommend the demo Scripts of the GUI Session- but keep in mind that not all of the examples were written by me but i personally did not want to keep them out.
Material – PS-Repo-Server
Interview/Blog: Deep Dive XAML-GUIs in PS
Material Deep Dive XAML-GUIs in PS
today i want to show you some more examples for bindings.
Herefore i created a little window which shows the process names in different controls where you can stop the selected one of the combobox by pressing the “Stop”-button.
i have arrived today from a very good Powershell Training with Dr. Tobias Weltner, MVP. I have learned plenty new stuff and will blog lots of the new knowledge in the upcoming weeks.
The first thing i have to tell you – get a damn ISESteroids license! I did try it previously and liked it very much but had some scepsis to invest the money. After investigating 3 days the functions which all come along with the Steroids i have to say – its just amazing and a must have. Here are just some of them:
- WPF Dialog creator
- Variable Monitor
- Snippet Manager
- Creating executable files (.exe)
- Creating functions and modules withing a click
- Build-in signing and – much – more
Try it by yourself and get a trial. Just take a look at http://www.powertheshell.com/
If you want to create good Powershell scripts this tool is just a must have at the moment.
Also a very important information for all powershell fanatics – take a look at the upcoming event Powershell Conference EU 2016 http://www.psconf.eu/
There will be some interesting speakers! Trust me!
if you work with more complex scripts behind the GUI you will come to a point, where you want to make changes to the GUI appearance within the CodeBehind-file. An example herefore would be the usage of a progressBar. But how can this be done?
