  • You can use a do or while loop.

    Start here:

  • Thank you for the reply. In looking at you link it is way too much to sift through to find what I need. I do not know where to put the Do Statement. I will have a good 5 of these questions by the time I finish this script. Any change I could get more specific answer in placements?

    Thank you!

  • Maybe this example will give you an idea:

    add-type -AssemblyName System.Windows.Forms
    $red = $blue = $green = $null
    $Question1 = { 
        $script:red = [System.Windows.Forms.MessageBox]::Show("Do you like red?","Title", "YESNO", "question")
    $Question2 = { 
        $script:blue = [System.Windows.Forms.MessageBox]::Show("Do you like blue?","Title", "YESNO", "question")
    $Question3 = { 
        $script:green = [System.Windows.Forms.MessageBox]::Show("Do you like green?","Title", "YESNO", "question")
    $Question4 = { 
        $Restart = [System.Windows.Forms.MessageBox]::Show("Would you like to start over?","Title", "YESNO", "question")
        If($Restart -match 'Yes'){$Question1.Invoke()}

  • The trick here is that the script blocks invoke each other but the script will continue on the point of the first $Question1.Invoke().

  • Simplest method to loop on a choice:

        switch ($host.ui.PromptForChoice($title, $message, $options, 0) ){
              0 { Write-Host 'YES' -fore green} 
              1 {  Write-Host 'NO' -fore red;$x=$false}
