Imported module help missing default values

I imported a module with functions that have parameters like this:

[Parameter(Position=1,ParameterSetName="detail")]
[ValidateSet("Basic","Extended","All")]
[String]$Detail="Basic",

The Help Writer doesn't detect the default value. Should it?

I think this is going to be a great tool which is why I'm banging on it.

Thank you for posting, jhicks.

Did you remember to include the following?
  • 1. Product, version and build (e.g. Product: PowerShell Help Writer 2015, Version & Build: 1.0.9. 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.

Once we figure out a way to get the default value from PowerShell, we will include it.
