I am trying to get the name of the current running script, and i googled my way to
$MyInvocation.MyCommand.Name should do the trick, however i have no name in there. It’s just a an empty field.
how come? and/or how could i then get the name of the script i an currently running?
I want to use it for logging.
How are you running it. Just as a script ? or any kind of background job ? Can you share little more info ?
I am writing a script file (.ps1) where i use VScode, i’ve tried to run the $MyInvocation.MyCommand.Name in the terminal window and execute the command from within the .ps1 file. I get an empty output in both places.
What i am trying to accomplish is to create a log fuction, that writes in the logfile what script it is logging from.
just be clear, can you share the exact statement of printing
Thats from running $MyInvocation and $MyInvocation.MyCommand
So i guess the exact statement of printing it, is empty ?
When you run from the editor, its not gonna have any value. Because its not executing the ps1 file.
Try executing .\filename.ps1.
Damn that is a vital peace of information
Thanks a bunch, now it works!
