Hello,
I am learning powershell and doing this exercise by following some training videos. But it gives me this error. Why? Googled it and it didn't help me to resolve it.

 Cannot find the type for custom attribute 'CmdletBidning'. Make sure that the assembly that contains this type is loaded.


function CFCompINfo
{
    [CmdletBinding()]
    [Alias(hostname)]
    [OutputType([int])]
    [string[]$CommputerName
    [switch]$nameLog
    Param
    (
        # Param1 help description
        [Parameter(Mandatory=$true,
                    ValueFromPipeline=$true,
                   ValueFromPipelineByPropertyName=$true,
                   Position=0)]
       [string[] $Computername,
       [switch]$nameLog

       
    )

   BEgin {}
Process {
    foreach ($computer in $computername)
{
write-host $computer    
}

}

End {}


}

Get-DJOSInfo -computername my-pc
#Get-DJOSInfo -computername dc1, dc2
#Get-DJOSInfo computers.txt | Get-DJOSInfo -namelog
#Get-DJOSInfo -host localhost

All parts before the param belong inside the {b]param[/b].

hm. THey are in inside {......Besides I also tried inserting snippet from Powershell and everying seems to be fine but still getting the error.
Could you please give an example how it should be. L


Function Get-DJOSInfo {
[CmdletBidning()]
    param([Parameter(Mandatory=$true,
    ValueFromPipeline=$true,
    ValueFromPipelineByPropertyName=$true)]
    [Alias('hostname')]
    [string[]$CommputerName,
    [switch]$nameLog
)
BEgin {}
Process {
    foreach ($computer in $computername)
{
#write-host $computer  
    $os = get-wmiobject -computerName $Computer -class Win32_OperatingSystem | select Caption,Build,OSARchitecture,ServicePackMajorVErsion
    $bios = get-wmiObject -computerName $Computer -class Win32_BIOS | select SerialNumber
    $processor = get-WMIObject -computerName $Computer -class Win32_Processor | select AddressWidth -first 1
}

}

End {}

* It's "CmdletBinding", not "CmdletBidning"
* "[string[]$ComputerName" is missing a closing square bracket: "[string[]]$ComputerName",
* In the Param section, you had "$CommputerName" instead of "$ComputerName"
* The function is generating no pipeline output.
* Convention for Powershell scripts is Pascal Case, see "Strongly Encouraged Development Guidelines", https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd878270(v=vs.85).aspx
It's best to get used to it form the very beginning (and so is consistent indentation).
* Using Aliases is fine in the Powershell prompt, but in scripts, you should always use the full names - you'll never know when they might be running on a machine where somebody redefined an alias (somebody might for example consider "dir" a good abbreviation for "Delete Immediate Recursive" ...)
Function Get-DJOSInfo {
[CmdletBinding()]
Param(
	[Parameter(Mandatory=$true, ValueFromPipeline=$true, ValueFromPipelineByPropertyName=$true)]
	[Alias('hostname')]
	[string[]]$ComputerName,
	[switch]$NameLog
)
	Begin {}
	Process {
		ForEach ($Computer in $ComputerName) {
			#Write-Host $Computer
			$OS = Get-WmiObject -ComputerName $Computer -Class Win32_OperatingSystem | Select-Object Caption, Build, OSArchitecture, ServicePackMajorVersion
			$Bios = Get-WmiObject -ComputerName $Computer -Class Win32_BIOS | Select-Object SerialNumber
			$Processor = Get-WmiObject -ComputerName $Computer -Class Win32_Processor | Select-Object AddressWidth -First 1
			Write-Host "---- OS ----" -Fore Yellow
			$OS
			Write-Host "---- Bios ----" -Fore Yellow
			$Bios.SerialNumber
			Write-Host "---- Processor ----" -Fore Yellow
			$Processor.AddressWidth
		}
	}
	End {}
}

Get-DJOSInfo -ComputerName $ENV:ComputerName
