New-Event - Powershell 2.0 CmdLet
Microsoft Windows PowerShell is a command-line shell and scripting tool based on the Microsoft .NET Framework. It is designed for system administrators, engineers and developers to control and automate the administration of Windows and applications.
More than hundred command-line tools (so called "cmdlets") can be used to perform system administration tasks and Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI). These cmdlets are easy to use, with standard naming conventions and common parameters, and standard tools for piping, sorting, filtering, and formatting data and objects.
Short description Creates a new event. Syntax New-Event [-SourceIdentifier] <string> [[-Sender] <psobject>] [[-EventArguments] <PSObject>] [[-MessageData] <pso bject>] [<CommonParameters>] Description The New-Event cmdlet creates a new custom event. You can use custom events to notify users about state changes in your program and any change that your program can detect, including hardware or system conditions, application status, disk status, network status, or the completion of a background job. Custom events are automatically added to the event queue in your session whenever they are raised; you do not need to subscribe to them. However, if you want to forward an event to the local session or specify an action to respond to the event, use the Register-EngineEvent cmdlet to subscribe to the custom event. When you subscribe to a custom event, the event subscriber is added to your session. If you cancel the event subscr iption by using the Unregister-Event cmdlet, the event subscriber and custom event are deleted from the session. If you do not subscribe to the custom event, to delete the event, you must change the program conditions or close the Windows PowerShell session.
