Adding Additional Functions to PowerShell Language



  • I have several PowerShell Server Extensions to Include Windows Server and Hyper-V, but Notepad++ doesn’t recognize the commands to color them. Example, “Get-ChildItem C:” works, but “Get-VM ppVault” does not work.

    I tried looking it the NPP directory, but didn’t see any files that could be related to editing the command sources.

    Thanks for any help in advance.

    editing the command sources.

    Settings > Style Configurator > PowerShell > CMDLET and add text to the user-defined keywords box

    Though I was surprised to learn that at least for PowerShell, the user-defined-keywords box is weirdly case-sensitive: if I typed Get-VM in the box, it didn’t highlight, even though that’s the case that’s used in the file; but if I typed get-vm in the box, it will highlight in the editor, whether it’s Get-VM or get-vm or gET-vM
