Add PSTypeName to PSCustomObject

Very quick note to self, and those interested!

PSTypeName

I really like this Article on Decorating Object from Warren F. (aka @psCookieMonster), but I can never remember the exact syntax to add a PSTypeName to PSCustomObject without the

$MyObject | Add-Member -TypeName 'blah'

or the:

$MyObject.PStypeNames.Insert(0,'blah')

Here’s how.

$MyObject = [pscustomobject]@{
 PSTypeName = 'Some.Nonsense.Typename'
 Prop1 = '5'
 Prop2 = (Get-Date)
 PropNotSoImportant = "x"
}
