PowerShell Studio: PrimalSense for Object Constructors

Tuesday, November 20th, 2012 by David Corrales
In the last service release (v3.1.13), we expanded PowerShell Studio’s PrimalSense. Now when you use the New-Object’s ArgumentList parameter, PowerShell Studio will automatically display the list of possible constructors for the given object type:   In addition, you can tab insert the constructor parameters in a similar fashion to the previously announced method completion feature:   This new addition saves time by eliminating the need to visit the MSDN website in order to determine what constructors are available for the given object type.…   More »

Extending PrimalSense for external PowerShell snapins

Monday, December 7th, 2009 by Alex Riedel
Getting PrimalSense for a COM object that you didn't have installed on your development machine is fairly simple: Copy the TLB file (type library) to you machine, associate it to a progid and you are all set. With PowerShell Cmdlets it is not quite that easy. Say you have to use a snapin that is only available on 64 bit but your development machine (and PrimalScript) are 32 bit. Maybe your snapin only installs on a server OS but not on your new Windows 7 laptop? Since snapins are assemblies and not just data files they may not be able…   More »

PrimalScript 2009 and SQL

Tuesday, December 9th, 2008 by SAPIEN Technologies
PrimalScript 2009 has expanded its support for SQL in several major ways. Primary among these are the addition of SQL PrimalSense and the ability to edit and save stored procedures directly within a database. Let’s take a quick look at some of these new features. Before you can work with SQL, you should first create a connection to a database. Open the Database Browser in PrimalScript and right click in the pane. Select “Create a new connection.” Immediately name the connection. Fill in the connection dialog boxes and press OK.  (If you are connecting to a SQL Server 2008 database…   More »

Better Sense for PowerShell

Tuesday, May 6th, 2008 by Don Jones
 PrimalScript 2007 build 566 (free to current PrimalScript 2007 owners - log into my.sapien.com to download) includes significant updates to the product's "PrimalSense" code-hinting and completion feature. For starters, you'll now get PrimalSense for COM component ProgIDs when using the New-Object cmdlet to instantiate COM components - much like the PrimalSense VBScripters have had with the CreateObject() function. You'll also enjoy improved PrimalSense for .NET Framework classes, helping you squeeze more power from PowerShell by directly utilizing the vast functionality of the underlying .NET Framework. Be sure to download this latest service release and take advantage of this and other…   More »
