Authoring Improvements using PowerShell ISE

Authoring DSC configurations in Windows PowerShell ISE is much easier, thanks to the following improvements:

  • List all DSC resources within a configuration block or node block by entering Ctrl+Space on a blank line within it.
  • Automatic completion on resource properties that are of the enumeration type.
  • Automatic completion on the DependsOn property of DSC resources, based on other resource instances in the configuration.
  • Better tab completion of resource property values.

Note: You must have an empty string for resource property values before you can use Ctrl+Space to list the options. Pressing Tab cycles through options.
