Product, version and build: PowerShell Studio 5.6.163.0

Operating system: Win 10 1903

Hello,

sorry to open a new topic again regarding modules manifest but could not find an answer, this is more a question rather than a bug report (at least I think). I have amodule with an associated module which has been created by PowerShell Studio, in the FunctionsToExport section I have the various functions that should be exported when module is imported like this

Code: Select all

	# Functions to export from this module
	FunctionsToExport	   = @(
	Function1,
	Functin2,
	Function3
	)
My question should PowerShell Studio automatically append functiosn to this variable when a new function is added to the module? Of course I can manually update the manifest file or simply use the '*' notation but was wondering if this should not be built-in in the product.

I've tried both creating manually a new function and using the contextual menu Insert New Function from the editor both with the same result.

Thanks in advance for any pointer/feedback!

On the properties panel, if you have Export Functions set to true:
SPS-PropertiesPanelModule.png
SPS-PropertiesPanelModule.png (20.87 KiB) Viewed 811 times
Then when you build your module, FunctionsToExport should be updated.

Thanks Brittney,

got it, I was expecting PsStudio to automatically update the manifest upon module file save but apparently need to build for this to work as I was previousely just moving the files under the correct path.

Thanks for clarifying.
