Learn about Windows PowerShell
Summary: Learn how to display a pop-up window by using Windows PowerShell.
How can I use Windows PowerShell to display a pop-up window to a user when a script or function has completed?
There are several ways to display a pop-up window, but the following command doesn’t require loading assemblies prior to creating the window:
$wshell = New-Object -ComObject Wscript.Shell
Note For more information, see Popup Method.
I will see your "MsgBox" and raise you an "InputBox":Add-Type -AssemblyName Microsoft.VisualBasicMicrosoft.VisualBasic.Interaction]::MsgBox('Hello',1,'My MessageBox')Microsoft.VisualBasic.Interaction]::InputBox('Enter you name:', 'User Inforation','Joe Smith')
@jvWell played! That is definitely another type of *box that is available to use.
If anyone uses jv's examples, be sure to add the left square bracket [ to the beginning of the last two lines.
Why two lines?
(new-object -ComObject wscript.shell).Popup("Operation Completed",0,"Done",0x1)
If you want to remove the "Cancel" button, remove the ",0x1" at the end...
It can be one line if you want (as your example shows).
Great post! Was wondering if anyone had any idea if you wanted to insert the local computer name in the pop up window.
$wshell.Popup("Welcome $ComputerName Your network drives are mounted",0,"Mappning")
And also if you could make it Time-based so that the user didnt have to push OK or cancel button. So it would dissapear in 5 sec or so.
Thanks in advance.
