Introduction

In this blog post, I will provide a Powershell menu choice script for adding functionality to your scripts.

If you are creating a script and want the user to be able to select between different choices, you can either have a pop-up or use a menu selection in the console. I prefer a menu selection in the console.

You can add more choices than two if you have the need to.

The Powershell menu script

$Title = "Select OS" 
$Message = "What OS is your favorite?" 
$WindowsME = New-Object System.Management.Automation.Host.ChoiceDescription "&Windows ME", `     "Windows ME" 
$MacOSX = New-Object System.Management.Automation.Host.ChoiceDescription "&MacOSX", `     "MacOSX" 
$Options = [System.Management.Automation.Host.ChoiceDescription[]]($WindowsME, $MacOSX) 
$SelectOS = $host.ui.PromptForChoice($title, $message, $options, 0)      
switch($SelectOS) {         
    0 {Write-Host "You love Windows ME!"}         1 
    {Write-Host "You must be an Apple fan boy"}     
} 

Conclusion

Creating a Powershell menu script can be useful in many cases!

  1. awesome script. however, I added some options and for a couple of my menu options it puts them on the same line.

    Is there any way to add line breaks between menu choices? Thanks in advance.
