ISE Plugins

Custom ribbon commands for use in the ISE.

You can include custom ribbon commands in the ISE to aid in improving the script authoring experience.

ISE Plugins

Add a custom plugin

For this example, we wish to have a plugin that analyzes the script and reports on any errors.

Create a new script stored under the following structure:

Analyze Script

The path structure needs to follow [MODULE]/Internal/ISE Plugins/[PLUGIN_NAME]. Here we have X-Demo/Internal/ISE Plugins/Analyze Script.

Use the following sample to fill in the script body.

if([string]::IsNullOrWhiteSpace($scriptText)){
Show-Alert "Script is empty - nothing to format."
exit
}
‚Äč
Import-Module -Name PSScriptAnalyzer
Invoke-ScriptAnalyzer -ScriptDefinition $scriptText

Now you can run the command from the ribbon and see the results in the ISE.
