Summary: Use Show-Command to display interactive Windows PowerShell parameter Help.
How do you display the parameters and parameter sets of Windows PowerShell cmdlets in an interactive fashion?
Use the Show-Command cmdlet from the Windows PowerShell console or the Windows PowerShell ISE:
Show-Command –name cmdletname
<p>This is the error message I got:</p>
<p>"The term 'Show-Command' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program. Check the spelling of the name, or if a path w</p>
<p>as included, verify that the path is correct and try again."</p>
<p>show-command it's in version 3 and it work only in ISE</p>
<p>@all Show command does work in the console as well as the ISE, but as Walid mentioned, it only works in PowerShell V3</p>
<p>@Earl Show-Command is included in PowerShell 3.0. You can get PowerShell 3.0 from here: <a rel="nofollow" target="_new" href="http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=34595">www.microsoft.com/.../details.aspx</a> </p>
<p>@Walid Toumi, @Boe Prox yes Show-Command works both in the PowerShell 3.0 console as well as with the ISE. In fact, show-Command appears two different ways in the ISE -- one is the Command Add-On, and the other is calling Show-Command directly.</p>
<p>Perhaps, the PowerTips should indicate which version or known version of PowerShell the tips work for.</p>
It's not working in ISE version 4. Any ideas why that is?<br/>
