Function Generate-Form {

Add-Type -AssemblyName System.Windows.Forms
Add-Type -AssemblyName System.Drawing

Build Form

$Form = New-Object System.Windows.Forms.Form
$Form.Text = “My Form”
$Form.Size = New-Object System.Drawing.Size(200,200)
$Form.StartPosition = “CenterScreen”
$Form.Topmost = $True

Add Button

$Button = New-Object System.Windows.Forms.Button
$Button.Location = New-Object System.Drawing.Size(35,35)
$Button.Size = New-Object System.Drawing.Size(120,23)
$Button.Text = “Show Dialog Box”


#Add Button event
[System.Windows.Forms.MessageBox]::Show(“Hello World.” , “My Dialog Box”)

#Show the Form
$form.ShowDialog()| Out-Null

} #End Function

#Call the Function
