Here is an example of cmdlet:
[code2=powershell]function Get-MyFile {
[CmdletBinding()]
param(
[String[]]$FileName
)
Get-ChildItem -Include $FileName
}[/code2]

How can I specify that $FileName parameter accepts wildcard character? I want help to contain following information:

-FileName

Required? false
Position? Named
Default value
Accept pipeline input? false
Accept wildcard characters? true

like many standard cmdlets.

I don't think there's any way with an advanced function to have help detect this. I would add a note in comment based help for the parameter indicating it can accept wildcards.
