ValidateSet from DSC resources is not being pulled into designer

Post by artisticcheese » Wed Apr 06, 2016 5:30 pm

Hello,

I imported module xDSCResourceDesigner, it has one parameter defined with ValidateSet and I expected UI to give me those choices via Intellisence. It does not work though. Pop up does not appear, same works fine in ISE.

[parameter(
Mandatory = $true,
Position = 1)]
[ValidateSet("Uint8","Uint16","Uint32","Uint64",`
"Sint8","Sint16","Sint32","Sint64",`
"Real32","Real64","Char16","String",`
"Boolean","DateTime","Hashtable",`
"PSCredential",`
"Uint8[]","Uint16[]","Uint32[]","Uint64[]",`
"Sint8[]","Sint16[]","Sint32[]","Sint64[]",`
"Real32[]","Real64[]","Char16[]","String[]",`
"Boolean[]","DateTime[]","Hashtable[]",`
"PSCredential[]",`
"Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance",`
"Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance[]")]
[System.String]
$Type,

Adding more DSC support is on our TODO list. Currently PowerShell Studio editor's PrimalSense runs disconnects from PowerShell and sessions are not maintained at this time.

In the meantime, if you want to open ISE from PowerShell Studio, you can click on the PowerShell ISE button in Ribbon->Tools->PowerShell.

Or you can create a custom command that will open the current file in the ISE using our Custom Menu feature:

I attached a sample Open in ISE CustomMenu.inf to this topic:
