Hey everyone -
I’ve got a question about screen output. I’ve got a module that I am working on that currently has a lot of verbose output. The question that I’ve got is – some of the verbose output is considered more important than others, as the screen output is a decent amount.
When the function runs into potential problems, I use Write-Error / Write-Warning, but the rest is Write-Verbose. I am trying to figure out a way to draw attention to the more important verbose information. The easy answer would be to change the foreground color of these more important messages (I have no interest in killing puppies using Write-Host).
Would changing the verbose output color for these certain messages be a good idea? Or is that something typically frowned upon? I was also looking at Write-Information - but I see that outputs to the screen in white - and I believe you lose some of the built in functionality you get with Write-Verbose.
How would something like this typically be handled?
