Even though PowerShell is a typically viewed as a console-based tool, there may be situations where you want to put a pretty face on your scripts. In this hands-on session, PowerShell author and trainer Jeff Hicks will guide you through the steps to create your first graphical PowerShell script using WinForms and PowerShell Studio from SAPIEN Technologies. You will learn how to populate dropdowns, fill text boxes, utilize radio buttons and much more. Come prepared with your test environment and a trial copy of the latest version of PowerShell Studio. This is a hands-on session but you are welcome to simply come and take notes. All samples and demos will be made available.

You will learn:

  • How to create a basic Winform script
  • How to use common graphical elements such as buttons, text boxes and drop-down lists
  • How to transform your PowerShell script into a graphical tool

This is a Bring Your Own Laptop (BYOL) Hands-On Lab (HOL) class. The instructor will provide hands-on experiences during class, which you will accomplish on your laptop. Power will be available in the room. Your laptop should have Windows Management Framework v3.0 or later installed (available on Windows 7 and later).
