This may not seem earth shattering, but it’s major news in my world (I’m a 1 finger typist)
In the V3 CTP, you now have the ability to use autocomplete in the console, in the middle of a line without losing the rest of the line.
This allows you to do this:
Get-Mailbox |Select-Object Name, Alias, Office, Database
WARNING: By default, only the first 1000 items are returned. Use the ResultSize parameter to specify the number of
items returned. To return all items, specify “-ResultSize Unlimited”.
Now, a normal typist would probably type in the whole ResultSize parameter, but I’m lazy, so I just go back to the Get-Mailbox and insert a -R<tab> to select from the available “R” parameters.
Of course, I still need to type “Unlimited” after the ResultSize, so perhaps this isn’t the best example
Play with the <tab> within the console, and see what you think.

It’s absolutely an excellent new feature.

Have you tried tab with unlimited? I know struct types usually work. Also try typing correctly for 3 days, I bet you pick it up 🙂

I’m not sure what you mean by ‘Have you tried tab with unlimited?”?
I’ve tried typing correctly for years and years…. 🙂

We have truly been enjoying reading blog we found it extremely useful and encouraging, source of inspiration for lot of our powershell projects.
We having a strange issue with Powershell ISE v 3.0 with following loaded modules:
We can successfully run Exchange Get-cmdlets for example: Get-CASMailbox $user |select OWAEnabled
But SET commands do not change anything for example: Set-CASMailbox $user -OWAEnabled $false
Appreciate your time,

Try the set commands with the Verbose switch like Set-CASMailbox $user -OWAEnabled $false -Verbose and see what fails..
