Pass Parameters to PowerShell Function

Hi.  I wrote the following PowerShell script:

function MyFunction
{
    param( [string] $title   ,
           [string] $message )
           
    & Write-Host ('Title  : ' + $title  )
    & Write-Host ('Message: ' + $message)
}
MyFunction('My Title', 'My Message')

Open in new window


expecting the following output:

Title  : My Title
Message: My Message

Open in new window


Instead, however, I get the following output:

Title  : My Title My Message
Message: 

Open in new window


Could you please tell me what I am doing wrong?  Thank you.

MyFunction ('My Title', 'My Message') is not the correct way to pass values to your function. In your case the function will consider ('My Title', 'My Message') as the single value and pass it to first parameter -title.

Try..
MyFunction 'My Title'  'My Message'

Open in new window

Or
MyFunction -title 'My Title' -message 'My Message'

Open in new window

Both will give you desired results..
