PowerShell Error with Regex Object

I have code that I've been testing in one environment, with no problems. I've recently moved it into the production environment, and am teasting it in 'phases'. One block of code that was working fine is now giving me an error. The actual code is:
	if ([regex]::match($file,'_[0-9]{8}_[0-9]{6,}$').Success = $true)
	{
		...
	}

Open in new window

and the error message I am receiving is:
"Success" is a ReadOnly property.
At D:\CABDataImport\common\AutoClientLoad\MoveFilesToStaging.ps1:35 char:51
+     if ([regex]::match($file,'_[0-9]{8}_[0-9]{6,}$'). <<<< Success = $true)
    + CategoryInfo          : InvalidOperation: (:) [], RuntimeException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : PropertyAssignmentException

You probably meant "... -eq $True", not "... = $True".

It should be
if ([regex]::match($file,'_[0-9]{8}_[0-9]{6,}$').Success -eq $true)

Open in new window


"-eq" instead of "="
I've made that mistake before too.

And best way is to leave that out completely. A boolean is a boolean!
if ([regex]::match($file,'_[0-9]{8}_[0-9]{6,}$').Success)

oBdA got it first (by seconds). I should have thought of Qlemo's answer. He is correct, a boolean is a boolean.
Live and learn :-)
