XML Config file

Found a nice article on how to load your config from an XML file


Load config from XML file

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
  <QueueServer name="blah"/>

$cfg =[xml](Get-Content "C:\scripts\PowerShell\QueueServers.xml")
$servername = $cfg.configuration.QueueServer.name

Load and modify XML file

Another example from stackoverflow


  <one>I like applesauce</one>
  <two>You sure bet I do!</two>

# load XML file into local variable and cast as XML type.
$doc = [xml](Get-Content ./test.xml)

$doc.root.one                                   #echoes "I like applesauce"
$doc.root.one = "Who doesn't like applesauce?"  #replace inner text of <one> node

# create new node...
$newNode = $doc.CreateElement("three")
$newNode.set_InnerText("And don't you forget it!")

# ...and position it in the hierarchy

# write results to disk

  <one>Who likes applesauce?</one>
  <two>You sure bet I do!</two>
  <three>And don't you forget it!</three>
