I’ve recently did some work with PowerShell ISE and missed a few features,that I wish to have in the ISE.
1.It will be good to Stop debugger(Shift-F5) icon on toolbar
2.In the popup
Windows PowerShell ISE
You cannot edit any script files in Windows PowerShell ISE while the debugger is running. To edit a script, stop the debugger.
it will be good to add button to stop debugger.
- When stopped at breakpoint, Run Script(F5) button is disabled, when it’s actually allowed.
- May be more complicate, but it will be nice to add an ability to change current position in debugger (Shift F10 in Visual Studio)
- Find does the search only in only one direction; it should, if not found down, continue to search from the top.
- Ability to make block comments
Just before writing this post I found article about looking very useful add-on http://www.powershellmagazine.com/2014/03/28/isesteroids-a-revolutionary-powershell-ise-add-on/
but I didn’t have a chance to try it yet.
