Poweshell and user input driven menu

Colin Smith Colin Smith Profile: Colin Smith


I needed to be able to display options to users and let them make simple choices..  to make a selection of what to do. I wrote the following in order to accommodate my needs. So I display a list of choices and the user makes a selection. After the selection is made the script calls the function that is associated with the choice.

Here you go:

$i = 0
$functions = "Function_1", "Function_2", "Function_3", "Function_4", "Exit"
$funarray = @()
foreach ($function in $functions)
$funarray += $i
$funarray += $function
Echo "$i $function"
$Selection = Read-Host "`nMake Selection"
$av = 0
echo "`n"
foreach ($value in $funarray)
if ($selection -eq $funarray[$av])

if ($funarray[$av] -eq "Exit"){exit}

& $funarray[$av]




So if you run this here is what you will get.
