Switch params in PowerShell are formatted weirdly
« on: June 17, 2024, 08:40:13 PM »
This is a negative side-effect of this: https://community.slickedit.com/index.php/topic,19187.msg

If you don't apply that, the "switch" keyword doesn't get formatted as a keyword. But if you do, you get another bad behavior:

Create a new PowerShell script, such as foo.ps1.

Copy/paste the following code to define the parameters this script will take:

Code: [Select]
param(
[string]$Variable1,
[int]$Variable2,
[bool]$Variable3,
[switch]$Variable4,
[string]$Variable5,
[int]$Variable6,
[bool]$Variable7,
[switch]$Variable8
)

Now, one by one, go to the end of each parameter line and hit <enter>. Note how they all work correctly except for the switch one.

Can we get this fixed?

I'm not able to reproduce this but maybe I'm not following what you are saying needs to be done to reproduce this.

What happens with a default config: vs -sc c:\temp\newconfig

Please post a sample file instead of copy/paste.

Please post your user.cfg.xml.

Email support if you prefer
