Back From TechEd 2011: Why create a GUI for my PowerShell Scripts?

Friday, June 10th, 2011 by David Corrales
Why create a GUI for my PowerShell Scripts? Microsoft Windows became successful because it offers an easy to use visual interface which doesn’t require users to remember console commands. Users still prefer a mouse click over having to type a command. One of the top reasons users create a GUI for their scripts is to distribute the script to a non-PowerShell user. For example, using PrimalForms or PrimalScript 2011 users can package their GUI script into an executable and distribute it to their help desk or other end users. The GUI doesn’t require the end user to open the console…   More »

Back From TechEd 2011: PrimalForms 2011 is a full featured PowerShell ISE

Wednesday, June 8th, 2011 by David Corrales
We had a great show at TechEd 201. We’d like to thank all of the people who took the time to pass by our booth. I would like to take this time to answer some common questions we were asked at TechEd 2011.   Isn’t PrimalForms 2011 only for creating GUIs (Graphical User Interfaces) in PowerShell? No, PrimalForms 2011 is a full featured PowerShell editor and much more. The product started as a GUI only tool but has evolved considerably from the Community Edition. In fact, you are not required to use the GUI designer in PrimalForms 2011 at all.…   More »

Designing Charts for PowerShell

Thursday, May 5th, 2011 by David Corrales
Recently a blog post titled Charting with PowerShell was brought to my attention. The blog article demonstrates how to create graphs in PowerShell using WinForms. After reading this article, I thought it would be much easier to have the option to visually design your charts instead of coding it by hand. Therefore in the last service release we added support for the Microsoft Chart Controls. Because the chart controls are not part of the core .NET Library, you need to download the library: Microsoft Chart Controls for Microsoft .NET 3.5 Framework Microsoft Chart Controls Documentation To demonstrate the chart control, I created two…   More »

PrimalScript 2011 User Review: Jay Adams from Noxigen

Thursday, May 5th, 2011 by SAPIEN Technologies
Over the past 10+ years in IT, I've enjoyed the challenges of automating every task imaginable while working at various companies. For most of my career it's been in a 200,000+ user enterprise environment managing over 5000 servers. PrimalScript has been one my most valued assets most of the way. I've taken a look at various editors annually and I can never find anything that even comes close to the functionality in PrimalScript. It would be easier to list the popular languages that it doesn't support. With PrimalSense, syntax highlighting, templates, source control, workspaces and a multitude of other configurable…   More »
