    6
    7
    
    $Assem = (
    add referenced assemblies here
    )
    $Source = @"
    …add C# source code here…
    "@
    Add-Type -ReferencedAssemblies $Assem -TypeDefinition $Source -Language CSharp
    
  2. Example:

    1

    "Microsoft.SharePoint.Publishing, Version=14.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c"
    )
    $Source = @"
    using Microsoft.SharePoint.Publishing.Administration;
    using System;
    namespace StefanG.Tools
    {
    public static class CDRemoteTimeout
    {
    public static void Get()
    {
    ContentDeploymentConfiguration cdconfig = ContentDeploymentConfiguration.GetInstance();
    Console.WriteLine("Remote Timeout: "+cdconfig.RemoteTimeout);
    }
    public static void Set(int seconds)
    {
    ContentDeploymentConfiguration cdconfig = ContentDeploymentConfiguration.GetInstance();
    cdconfig.RemoteTimeout = seconds;
    cdconfig.Update();
    }
    }
    }
    "@
    Add-Type -ReferencedAssemblies $Assem -TypeDefinition $Source -Language CSharp
    [StefanG.Tools.CDRemoteTimeout]::Get()
    [StefanG.Tools.CDRemoteTimeout]::Set(600)
    # The last lines in the above listed sample demonstrates how to call the C# methods from Powershell.
