    Default PowerShell GUI Tool

    I need to create GUI interface for some powershell scripts.

    Any recommendation on a good free IDE that allows GUI creation? Does Visual Studio Express allow this?
    And if it does are there any limitation on what you can create?

    I just need to translate simple scripts to GUI and pull Active Directory security group/distribution list memberships of users etc

    Default Re: PowerShell GUI Tool

    I found that C# with .NET was the easiest way to make GUIs on windows. Get Visual Studio Community edition, it has all the features of commercial VS but its completely free, it comes with C# and .NET windows forms out of the box. You can design the interface with a WYSIWYG drag & drop editor, and then to bind functionality you can just double click on a button you have added for example, and it will automatically take you to the OnClick event callback which you can edit. You would need to learn C# though.

    Thanks!! I did consider that, but since I need to interface with AD I dont know how C# is going to work out vs PowerShell which I find relatively easy for scripting
