Describes the features and system requirements of Windows PowerShell Integrated Scripting Environment (ISE).
Windows PowerShell ISE is a host application for Windows PowerShell. In Windows PowerShell ISE, you can run commands and write, test, and debug scripts in a single Windows-based graphical user interface. Its features include multiline editing, tab completion, syntax coloring, selective execution, context-sensitive Help, and support for right-to-left languages. Notes: Because this feature requires a user interface, it does not work on Server Core installations of Windows Server. Window PowerShell ISE is built on the Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF). If the graphical elements of Windows PowerShell ISE do not render correctly on your system, you might resolve the problem by adding or adjusting the graphics rendering settings on your system. This might be required if the computer has an older video driver or you are using virtualization software. For more information, see "Graphics Rendering Registry Settings" in the MSDN library at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=144711. Running Interactive Commands You can run any Windows PowerShell expression or command in Windows PowerShell ISE. You can use cmdlets, providers, snap-ins, and modules as you would use them in the Windows PowerShell console. You can type or paste interactive commands in the Command pane. To run the commands, you can use buttons, menu items, and keyboard shortcuts. You can use the multiline editing feature to type or paste several lines of code into the Command pane at once. When you press the UP ARROW key to recall the previous command, all the lines in the command are recalled. When you type commands, press SHIFT+ENTER to make a new blank line appear under the current line. Viewing Output The results of commands and scripts are displayed in the Output pane. You can move or copy the results from the Output pane by using keyboard shortcuts or the Output toolbar, and you can paste the results in other programs. You can also clear the Output pane by clicking the Clear Output button or by typing one of the following commands: clear-host cls Writing Scripts and Functions In the Script pane, you can open, compose, edit, and run scripts. The Script pane lets you edit scripts by using buttons and keyboard shortcuts. You can also copy, cut, and paste text between the Script pane and the Command pane. You can use the selective run feature to run all or part of a script. To run part of a script, select the text you want to run, and then click the Run Script button. Or, press F5. Debugging Scripts You can use the Windows PowerShell ISE debugger to debug a Windows PowerShell script or function. When you debug a script, you can use menu items and shortcut keys to perform many of the same tasks that you would perform in the Windows PowerShell console. For example, to set a line breakpoint in a script, right-click the line of code, and then click Toggle Breakpoint. You can also use the Windows PowerShell debugger cmdlets in the Command pane just as you would use them in the console. Tab Completion Windows PowerShell ISE has tab completion for cmdlet names, parameter names, and Microsoft .NET Framework static types. To use tab completion, type the beginning of the name, and then press the TAB key. Getting Help Windows PowerShell ISE includes a searchable compiled Help file that describes Windows PowerShell ISE and Windows PowerShell. This Help file includes all the Help that is available from the Get-Help cmdlet. To view the Help file in Windows PowerShell ISE, use the Help menu. Or, press F1. The Help is context sensitive. For example, if you type Invoke-Item and then press F1, the Help file opens to the Help topic for the Invoke-Item cmdlet. And, you can use the Get-Help cmdlet in Windows PowerShell as you would in the Windows PowerShell console. Customizing the View You can use Windows PowerShell ISE features to move and to resize the Command pane, the Output pane, and the Script pane. You can show and hide the Script pane, and you can change the text size in all the panes. You can also use the $Host variable to change some aspects of the appearance of Windows PowerShell ISE, including the window title and the foreground and background colors in the Output pane. In addition, Windows PowerShell ISE has its own custom host variable, $psgHost. You can use this variable to customize Windows PowerShell ISE, including adding menus and menu items. Windows PowerShell ISE Profile Windows PowerShell ISE has its own Windows PowerShell profile, Microsoft.PowerShellISE_profile.ps1. In this profile, you can store functions, aliases, variables, and commands that you use in Windows PowerShell ISE. Items in the Windows PowerShell AllHosts profiles (CurrentUser\AllHosts and AllUsers\AllHosts) are also available in Windows PowerShell ISE, just as they are in any Windows PowerShell host program. However, the items in your Windows PowerShell console profiles are not available in Windows PowerShell ISE. Instructions for moving and reconfiguring your profiles are available in Windows PowerShell ISE Help and in about_Profiles.
