Are there any showcase examples of PowerShell Studio GUI?

Post by smjadtnf707 » Wed Jun 05, 2019 4:37 pm

I was wondering...
Can anyone give me some links or examples of GUI Apps that were created with PowerShell Studio?

I think I have seen 1 or 2 online before but that is about it.

I'm just curious to see and be inspired by some of the tools, automation people are doing with PSS.

Thank You,

Wayne

PowerShell Studio does not create GUI Apps. It creates packaged PowerShell scripts. Any PowerShell script can be packaged.

Hello,

Thank you for the quick reply.
I see I will need to use correct use of words so that I can be understood.

Have you seen the LazyWinAdmin "Packaged Script"?
So, I am just not sure where to look for more example of what people might be creating for databases, SCCM, or other tools they are creating for roles they may be in. Also, if there are people creating packages and selling them anywhere online?

I'll try and word things more correctly if possible but right now my vocabulary is like being in an expat in a foreign country in regards to coding and powershell.
I apologize for my entry level skills.
Thank You,

Wayne

No. That is not the point. You need to use words correctly so that you can understand. Please realize that out ability to think about and learn things is highly dependent our ability to use language and to agree on the meaning of words. This is even more critical when trying to learn and use technology. If you don't know what the word "widget" refers to then how can you learn what a widget can do or how to use it. If you think a widget is an apple then you will likely try to eat it. That may be a very terminal mistake.

It is critical in science, math and technology to learn the correct definition of terms and to clearly understand what that definition means.

Never a need to apologize. Everyone starts at the beginning. It is the next steps that make all of the difference. Learning how to research the words in this new language is the first step along with learning the basics of the context that the language is used in. You cannot become proficient in any language without learning about the culture.

With computer technology you must learn the basics of computer engineering. To learn any technology we always start with history and definition of terms and in an organized way. My method has, since I was about 7, to look up the terms and research them until I fully understood the term.

A lot of people use PowerShell Studio to create GUI apps, but the majority is in-house, corporate applications, so you won't ever see those.
If you google "powershell studio" GUI apps
you get a lot of help getting started.

Alexander,

Thank you.
I looked and found several and 3 of them I found were made with Powershell Studio.

It really helps to be able to see something similar to what you have in your head, and see others code and what is happening.This especially helps being new to .Net, Windows Forms, PS, and PSS.
Thank You,

Wayne
