    Hello guys!
    Sorry for noob question.
    How can I get all available values of the object property? My english is bad, so i append my question with an example
    we have cmdlet get-service. Object cmdlets returns has a property Status.
    PS C:\Users\lopyeg> (get-service)[2] |get-member

    TypeName: System.ServiceProcess.ServiceController

    Name MemberType Definition
    ---- ---------- ----------
    Name AliasProperty Name = ServiceName
    Status Property System.ServiceProcess.ServiceControllerStatus Status {get;}

    Question: How can I see all available values of Status (running| stopped| paused maybe)?

    is it important for discovering powershell and selecting...

    thank you for response

    So sorry, I misunderstood your question and thought you wanted all properties from a single service.

    You can only retrieve the status values that are actually in use on a system (Use Klaas's method to achieve this). In order to find all the possible status values, whether they actually exist on a server or not, you'll need to find it in MSDN. It looks to me like the values are in the ServiceControllerStatus enumeration. You can find it at
    The values are]

    Thank you for response

    the Service status was an example)
    is it some cmdlet to get values of any property?
    for AD objects for example?

    to be able to retrieve all of the available values they must be taken from a final set, in case of .net it is usually enum. To learn if the property you are interested in is enum look at its base type.
    $statusValue = Get-service | select -First 1 | select -ExpandProperty status

    IsPublic IsSerial Name BaseType
    -------- -------- ---- --------
    True True ServiceControllerStatus System.Enum

    If the base type is enum you can use static methods of the enum class to list the available values of the type:

    if your run 'get-service|gm'
    Status Property System.ServiceProcess.ServiceControllerStatus Status {get;}

    And if you look up the System.ServiceProcess.ServiceControllerStatus Status .NET in Powershell:
    You'll get the values mentioned above

    Give it some time, I am sure you'll figure it out once you get bit more into PowerShell. 🙂

    There are lots of ways by which we can increase our property values. Koh samui has already high rated properties.

    What are the new prices of koh samui property? What did they do to increase their property?
