Create a PowerShell GUI App with a Fixed-Size UI

The newest video in our “Check out this feature” series is actually an answer to a great question that was posed to me on Reddit. A PowerShell GUI with a Fixed-Size UI shows you how to use the features of PowerShell Studio to create a PowerShell GUI app that the end-user cannot resize.



A fixed-size UI is much simpler to manage because you don’t have to anchor the form controls or worry about them floating around the form when the user resizes the UI.  In this video, I demonstrate 3 different ways to do it. You can also create a “compromise” version where the background isn’t resizable, but the end-user can minimize and maximize the UI.

Our first video, Function Builder in SAPIEN PowerShell Studio, demonstrated our awesome automation for function and parameter syntax.

Our second video, Rewind in PowerShell Studio: A built-in safety net for your scripts, describes the Rewind and Create Restore Point features, which help you recover to a previous version of a script — or any PowerShell Studio file — even if you’ve saved, or closed and reopened the file multiple times. And, the video shows you how to use these features in a real-world scenario.

You can find all of our videos on the SAPIEN Technologies YouTube channel. To be sure not to miss any of them, subscribe!

I hope you like these videos. As always, I really appreciate comments, suggestions and ideas.
