i am just starting with powershell with the help of learn windows powershell 3 in a month of lunches.
i noticed on page 59 that to change a registry value using the set-itempropertiesÂ there is a parameter called -PSPropert that give the actual name (or property ) of the reg key so we can chooose to change it's value.
i looked into the help of PS for set-itemproperties, internet ect.. nowhere i can find this parameter.
can anyone explain me why? and if it is hidden, is there other hidenn parameters? how can i find them?
The parameter name got truncated. It is PSProperty. Â This is an alias for the -Name parameter which we should have used instead. If you use tab completion with -PS[tab] you see it.
an alias? mmm ok,
so i did this:
PS Alias:\> (get-commandÂ Set-ItemProperty | select -ExpandProperty parameters).name.aliases
and it returned this:
i'll remember to look for the "hidden" aliases when there is a parameter i don't get 🙂
i also see that there is another alias for the -path: -PSpath by doing PS then tabÂ but i cannot see it using the above command..
is there an explanation as to why those aliases are "longer", more complicated than the original parameter?
maybe these are generic to a lot of other cmdlet?
sorry if this seems like dumb question and thank's a lot Jeffrey for your help.
forget about the PSpath question, i found out that this is the literalpath alias 🙂
