XAML GUI Button Variable Enumerate

I am using the following script to read a SQL DB table to populate a XAML GUI for table value editing. The part I am hung up on is getting variables defined in the PS1 to handle button click events. I have tried numerous ideas but for the life of me I cant seem to get this to work without doing an out-file in the foreach that creates other issues. In case this tinker script isnt enough info for each SQL table row the XAML creates a button row Name and Value columns, this part I have working using an enumerating list as it reads the rows. It’s the PS script part where i write in the add_click actions, tooltips, and other functions to the buttons that I cannot get to happen correctly.

 

[pre]

$i = 0

SQL Script ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

$SQLScript = @"
SELECT Name, Value FROM MachineSetting
"@

SQL DB Query String ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

$SQLConnection = new-object system.data.sqlclient.sqlconnection( "Data Source=RENAMEDPC\SQLExpress;Initial Catalog=Machinery;uid=User;password=mypassword ”)
$SQLAdapter = new-object system.data.sqlclient.sqldataadapter ($SQLScript, $SQLConnection)
$SQLTable = new-object system.data.datatable
$SQLAdapter.Fill($SQLTable) | Out-Null
$DBTableArray = @($SQLTable)

Trial Script ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

foreach ($EV in $DBTableArray.Value) {
$i += 1
$ButtonEnumerator = “`$Value$i”
$ButtonEnumerator.ToString() = $win.FindName(“Value$ButtonEnumerator”)
}

[/pre]

Curious to know, what did you expect from below line ?

$ButtonEnumerator.ToString() = $win.FindName("Value$ButtonEnumerator")

Not my best thought on what to try but what I am after is a way to have the foreach loop kick out all my variables. The one you ask about I was looking to see the following. At this point im spinning circles and making my problem worse tinkering, end result I want a foreach loop on both the Name and Value columns for the DB to populate an undetermined number of buttons and the functions for the add_click of each button.

 

[pre]

$Value1 = $win.FindName(“Value1”)

[/pre]

Here is the whole script, seems most all does what i want except the $NameListScript and $ValueListScript to form my PS variables to control the buttons. I do have some minor issues with button behaviors but I can work that out once I get them working with add_click events.

 

EDIT post seems to be cutting out the XAML but not sure if that is needed

 

[pre]

$ButtonEnumerator = 0
$Margin = -15
$NameListScript = New-Object System.Collections.Generic.List[System.Object]
$NameListXAML = New-Object System.Collections.Generic.List[System.Object]
$ValueListScript = New-Object System.Collections.Generic.List[System.Object]
$ValueListXAML = New-Object System.Collections.Generic.List[System.Object]

SQL Script ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

$SQLScript = @"
SELECT Name, Value FROM MachineSetting
"@

SQL DB Query String ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

$SQLConnection = new-object system.data.sqlclient.sqlconnection( "Data Source=RENAMEDPC\SQLExpress;Initial Catalog=Machinery;uid=User;password=passwd ”)
$SQLAdapter = new-object system.data.sqlclient.sqldataadapter ($SQLScript, $SQLConnection)
$SQLTable = new-object system.data.datatable
$SQLAdapter.Fill($SQLTable) | Out-Null
$DBTableArray = @($SQLTable)

XAML and PS1 enumerated rows ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

foreach ($Name in $DBTableArray.Name) {
$ButtonEnumerator += 1
$Margin += 20
$NameListXAML.Add("<Button Name="“Text$ButtonEnumerator”" BorderBrush=""#313130"" BorderThickness="“2"” Content=""$Name"" HorizontalAlignment="“Left”" Margin="“5,$Margin,0,0"” VerticalAlignment="“Top”" Width="“320"” />")
$NameListScript.Add(“`$Text$ButtonEnumerator = `$win.FindName(”“Text$ButtonEnumerator”");")
$NameListScript.Add(“`$Text$ButtonEnumerator.Add_click({;”)
$NameListScript.Add(“`$Fill = `$Text$ButtonEnumerator.Content;”)
$NameListScript.Add(“`$Fill1 = `$Value$ButtonEnumerator.Content;”)
$NameListScript.Add(“`$OptionName.text = `$Fill;”)
$NameListScript.Add(“`$OptionValue.text = `$Fill1;”)
$NameListScript.Add(“`$ClickedName = ““`$Text$ButtonEnumerator””;”)
$NameListScript.Add(“`$ClickedValue = ““`$Value$ButtonEnumerator””});”)
}

$ButtonEnumerator = 0
$Margin = -15

foreach ($EV in $DBTableArray.Value) {
$ButtonEnumerator += 1
$Margin += 20
$ValueListXAML.Add("<Button Name="“Value$ButtonEnumerator”" BorderBrush=""#313130"" BorderThickness="“2"” Content=""$EV"" HorizontalAlignment="“Left”" Margin="“340,$Margin,0,0"” VerticalAlignment="“Top”" Width="“320"” />")
$ValueListScript.Add(“`$Value$ButtonEnumerator = `$win.FindName(”“Value$ButtonEnumerator”");")
$ValueListScript.Add(“`$Value$ButtonEnumerator.ToolTip = ““Original Value $EV””;”)
}

$NameListScript.ToArray()
$NameListXAML.ToArray()
$ValueListScript.ToArray()
$ValueListXAML.ToArray()

Yes, the XAML would be prudent.
No, this and many Q&A forums like this one will not allow XAML and the like.
So, post to gist, GitHub or other, and post a link.

Why are you doing this?

$NameListScript = New-Object System.Collections.Generic.List[System.Object]
$NameListXAML = New-Object System.Collections.Generic.List[System.Object]
$ValueListScript = New-Object System.Collections.Generic.List[System.Object]
$ValueListXAML = New-Object System.Collections.Generic.List[System.Object]

You should only need one of these and reuse it in your code.

I took the < and the >'s out of it so it shows here. Well I would think I need atleast two, one for the xaml list and one for the PS script list but will clean that up later.
