Find an object in an array

Hello,

I've a simple object defined like this :

    $myEvent = "" | Select-Object cn, HomeFolder, Documents, AppData, Rights_Home, Rights_AppData, Owner

the script loops many time and in every loop do a : $AllEvents += $myEvent

Now I want to find in $AllEvents a specific cn value to modify attributes

for exemple : $AllEvents[$idx].Documents = "test"

where $idx is the index value of the element I'm looking for

Thx in advance

You would just have to parse through the array and look for a match from each element.
$AllEvents | ? { $_.cn -eq "whatever" } | % { $_.Documents = "test" }

You can use the -match operator if you are familiar with regular expression:

$AllEvents|%{
$_.HomeFolder -match "tom|mary|nacy";
}
