Get script path

Get script path

Get script path


I am working on a Windows form using PowerShell. I need to generate a file from the form application and place the file in the script's executable path. I have the function below which I use for getting the script path in a command console mode, but it does not return any value when I launch it in the Windows form.

function get-ScriptPath {
{$scriptPath = $MyInvocation.ScriptName}
{$scriptPath = $MyInvocation.MyCommand.Definition}
Split-Path -Parent $scriptPath

I want to know if there is any way I can do to get the Windows form's executable path.

Thank you in advance.

RE: Get script path

Yes, I am running inside the ISE.

RE: Get script path

I don't believe it gets set unless you're running from a saved .ps1 file.
