Where did Object.Psobject go? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm simply trying to validate that my object 1. has the properties I want it to have, and 2. that they're all strings before I work on them.  I was using $object.psobject.properties.name and $object.psobject.properties.typenameofvalue and had test it as working, but now none of the noteproperties are listed in there.  If you do an $object | get-member you can still get the noteproperties, but of course the value types are all in Definition in the form of "string Key=Value" which is a pain to get things out of.

    Has anyone hit this?  Any idea why my Psobject is behaving so weirdly?  I can see the BaseObject and ImmediateBaseObject properties, I didn't think you were generally supposed to be able to see those.

  • This works for me. I see only the two NoteProperty members:

    $o = [PSCustomObject]@{
        One = 'String1'
        Two = 'String2'

  • Heck, I figured it out.  I'm not getting back objects, I'm getting back ARRAYS of them.  If I examine $object[0].psobject I get what I need.
