Something I Should Have Done a While Ago: $continue

$ErrorActionPreference is your friend.  However, ‘SilentlyContine’ isn’t, especially when it’s misspelled as is this case.  If we could Tab-complete it, that’d be great.


I’ve added this to my $PROFILE (actually my CommonFunctionLibrary.psm1 from my RDP-friendly Profile System)

$Continue = ‘Continue’;

$SilentlyContinue= ‘SilentlyContinue’;

$Stop = ‘Stop’;

$Inquire = ‘Inquire’;

$Ignore = ‘Ignore’;

$Suspend = ‘Suspend’;

Set-Variable Continue, SilentlyContinue, Stop, Inquire, Ignore, Suspend –Option ReadOnly

For interested parties, these strings are an Enum, [System.Management.Automation]::ActionPreference and can be displayed as follows:
