Examples

EXAMPLE 1


The following starts the progress demo script in interactive mode (showing dialogs for each script) in 3 different ways.

In the first case script path is used, second case shows the script item beign retrieved and provided to the cmdlet.
The last case shows the script to be provided as a script block (script content)
Script finishes before the sessions that were launched from it end. 
The sessions will be disposed when user presses the "Close" button in their dialogs as the -AutoDispose parameter was provided.

$scriptPath = "master:\system\Modules\PowerShell\Script Library\Getting Started\Script Testing\Long Running Script with Progress Demo"
$scriptItem = Get-Item $scriptPath
$script = [scriptblock]::Create($scriptItem.Script)
Start-ScriptSession -Path $scriptPath -Interactive -AutoDispose
Start-ScriptSession -Item $scriptItem -Interactive -AutoDispose
Start-ScriptSession -ScriptBlock $script -Interactive -AutoDispose

EXAMPLE 2


The following starts a script that changes its path to "master:\" and sleeps for 4 seconds. The session will persist in memory as no -AutoDispose parameter has been provided.

Start-ScriptSession -ScriptBlock { cd master:\; Start-Sleep -Seconds 4 } -Id "Background Task"
