Listing enumeration type values (updated)

 

The old function return duplicate names when the enumeration has two names with the same value, for example: 

 

PS >  Get-EnumValues Microsoft.PowerShell.ExecutionPolicy

        Name Value
        ---- -----
Unrestricted     0
RemoteSigned     1
   AllSigned     2
  Restricted     3
  Restricted     3

 

Here is the modified version of the function:

function Get-EnumValues([type]$type){ 
   [enum]::getNames($type) | select @{n="Name";e={$_}},@{n="Value";e={$type::$_.value__}} | ft -auto
}

 

And the results:

PS >  Get-EnumValues Microsoft.PowerShell.ExecutionPolicy

Name         Value
----         -----
Unrestricted     0
RemoteSigned     1
AllSigned        2
Restricted       3
Default          3
