Thank you for posting, rtiel1.

Did you remember to include the following?
  • 1. Product, version and build (e.g. Product: PowerShell Studio 2014, Version & Build: 4.1.71. Version and build information can be found in the product's About box accessed by clicking the blue icon with the 'i' in the upper right hand corner of the ribbon.)
    2. Specify if you are running a 32 or 64 bit version
    3. Specify your operating system and if it is 32 or 64 bit.
    4. Attach a screenshot if your issue can be seen on the screen
    5. Attach a zip file if you have multiple files (crash reports, log entries, etc.) related to your issue.
If not, please take a moment to edit your original post or reply to this one.

In the button click event, you can use the $this variable to access the calling control.
PowerShell Code
Double-click the code block to select all.
$button_Click = {
	$this.Text #get button text

You can have multiple buttons share the same event. There is no need to create a separate event for each button.
