Hello Folks,

I'm expanding my knowledge in learning classes in powershell... I have written this basic  PS example

class Books {
    [string]$title 
    [string]$author
    [int]$pages   
}

$books1 = [books]::new()
$books1.title = "Harry Potter"
$books1.author = "JK Rowling"
$books1.pages = 309

$books2 = [books]::new()
$books2.title = "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World"
$books2.author = "Bryan Lee O'Malley"
$books2.pages = 168

$books2 | ? {$_.title -like "*scott*"}

Open in new window


this will display the book from book 2 titled like "scott"...
Does anybody have any idea on how can I tell the program to search within all the books and find any "X" Title... I was thinking "foreach" but i'm not sure I could squeeze it in...? or if you have a c# approach that would be great also :)

Thanks in advance!
