You can use the read-host command-let to get an input from a user during program execution.
PowerShell Input Example
Here is a related example, the program gets two numbers in string format and converts them into integers and then sums up those numbers and finally displays the result. The -prompt parameter is used to display a message or information to the user with colon appended at the end.
$num1 = read-host -Prompt "Enter Ist number" $num2 = Read-Host -Prompt "Enter Second number" [int]$Num1 = [convert]::ToInt32($num1, 10) [int]$Num2 = [convert]::ToInt32($num2, 10) $sum = $num1 + $num2 Write-Host "Result: $sum"
