Mahapps.Metro HamburgerMenu with PowerShell

How to pass arguments to a powershell script?

It’s been a while folks. Recently, a colleague of mine asked me how to pass argument(s) to a PowerShell script and how does it work. I even come across the same problem when I started PowerShell so I decided to write something about it for those who may need.

.\Powershell.exe “C:\myScript.ps1” -args1 “value1” -args2 “value2” […]  -optional1 -optional2 […]

With as many arguments and optional switch you want.

How it is done?


Edit your script and at the head of your file before everything add the following lines:


The statement:

Param(): declares parameters that will be used, pretty obvious.
[Parameter()]: specifications about the parameter if it is mandatory, its position …
[string] /[int] /[switch]: parameters type.
