Any way to use Intellisense with the toolkit? Or get the PowerShell ISE to list the functions in the command Add-On?

I am trying to introduce the toolkit to my PowerShell newbie coworkers, and I have some questions around making the toolkit more user friendly to non-scripting types.

Is there a way to get Intellisense to work with the functions? This alone would be very helpful, but I haven't found a way to have the ISE recognize the functions in AppDeployToolkitMain.ps1.

This might be a little more out there, but is there any way to have the ISE command add-on pane show the available functions in AppDeployToolkitMain.ps1? Or does that only work for modules?

Hi, Easiest way to do this is to dot-source the main toolkit script in the ISE using . .\AppDeployToolkitMain.ps1 Then hit Refresh on the Command add-on.

Here’s what you’ll get:
