Help With A PowerShell Script

I have a script that queries all of our DCs, looking for the lastlogon of specific users.
The user name is entered in a dialog box when the script is executed.
When the user is entered in the box, the box closes.

Is there a way to have the name entered in the script, and keep the box open to enter the next user name?

The script so far is as follows;

$today = Get-Date
$rundate = $($today.adddays(-0)).toshortdatestring()


[void] [System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("System.Drawing")
[void] [System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("System.Windows.Forms")

$objForm = New-Object System.Windows.Forms.Form
$objForm.Text = "User Entry Form"
$objForm.Size = New-Object System.Drawing.Size(300,200)
$objForm.StartPosition = "CenterScreen"

$objForm.KeyPreview = $True
$objForm.Add_KeyDown({if ($_.KeyCode -eq "Enter")
    {$x=$objTextBox.Text;$objForm.Close()}})
$objForm.Add_KeyDown({if ($_.KeyCode -eq "Escape")
    {$objForm.Close()}})

$OKButton = New-Object System.Windows.Forms.Button
$OKButton.Location = New-Object System.Drawing.Size(75,120)
$OKButton.Size = New-Object System.Drawing.Size(75,23)
$OKButton.Text = "OK"
$OKButton.Add_Click({$x=$objTextBox.Text;$objForm.Close()})
$objForm.Controls.Add($OKButton)

$CancelButton = New-Object System.Windows.Forms.Button
$CancelButton.Location = New-Object System.Drawing.Size(150,120)
$CancelButton.Size = New-Object System.Drawing.Size(75,23)
$CancelButton.Text = "Cancel"
$CancelButton.Add_Click({$objForm.Close()})
$objForm.Controls.Add($CancelButton)

$objLabel = New-Object System.Windows.Forms.Label
$objLabel.Location = New-Object System.Drawing.Size(10,20)
$objLabel.Size = New-Object System.Drawing.Size(280,20)
$objLabel.Text = "Enter the user name in the space below:"
$objForm.Controls.Add($objLabel)

$objTextBox = New-Object System.Windows.Forms.TextBox
$objTextBox.Location = New-Object System.Drawing.Size(10,40)
$objTextBox.Size = New-Object System.Drawing.Size(260,20)
$objForm.Controls.Add($objTextBox)

$objForm.Topmost = $True

$objForm.Add_Shown({$objForm.Activate()})
$objForm.ShowDialog()

$x
$dcs = Get-Content "C:\temp\serverlist.txt"


 foreach($dc in $dcs){ get-QADUser $x  -Service $dc -Enabled -SearchRoot 'auab.subdomain.domainname.com/AUAB' | Select-Object Name,sAMAccountName,Description,lastlogon  }
 
 
Write-Host "`nRun time was $(((get-date) - $today).totalseconds) seconds."

You could have at least remove th domain name...
Anyway - did you try placing the script in a While ($true){} loop?

Crap! I completely overlooked the domain name.
How would I put it in a While ($true){} loop?

I ended up using a Do-While loop.

 do {  

$today = Get-Date
$rundate = $($today.adddays(-0)).toshortdatestring()
