Wow, I finally got around to doing a little blogging. This has thus far been a very busy year. I’m actually writing this in the air heading to teach a PowerShell class in North Carolina and prepping my sessions for PowerShell Summit Europe in a few months.
When I start helping my students debug their issues in class, I often walk up to their monitors and see the error right away. I am very cautious to point out at the beginning of class that the reason that I see their errors so fast is because I have made the same errors so often. Here is one that left me scratching my head.
While adding a valid parameter to a function that I was developing, I had this error in the ISE.
I’ll be honest, this was a new one for me. Looking at the message, I realized that there was a casting of string. This pointed me to my param block. Sure enough, I placed a comma where I should not have.
You can see it right after [String]. My bad. Hey, all of us make mistakes.
