This may be a really stupid question (hopefully), but I'm trying to do something with the new Powershell tools (part of SMT 2015) where I want to grab the point attributes of a tag, and use them to build new cloned tags (ultimately on a separate system). I want to do some manipulation on the attributes, but whenever I try to, it doesn't recognize the keys in the hashtable/dictionary that I pulled out.
First I did:
$cdt158 = Get-PIPoint -name cdt158 -connection $piserver -Attributes $attr
where $piserver is my pi server and $attr is an array of strings (two of them, "pointid" and "recno")
This looks fine:
PS C:\Windows\system32> $cdt158.Attributes
But when I do:
PS C:\Windows\system32> $cdt158.Attributes.pointid
it returns nothing, and then when I do
PS C:\Windows\system32> $cdt158.Attributes.ContainsKey("pointid")
It's like it's not even there. Not sure if i'm doing something wrong (still fairly new to Powershell, so it may very well be a bug between the keyboard and the chair).
Thanks for any help,
