I want to write a script that does a manipulation on users in my company.
Usernames can be with capital letters/small letters, and also the domain name is sometimes assigned to them with capital letters, so a username can be like:
domain\username, DOMAIN\USERNAME, DOMAIN\username or domain\USERNAME.
I ask for the username like this:
$user = Read-Host "Please insert username"
How can I make
$user non case sensitive and also the company name?
The username needs to be like
$company\$user without case sensitivity.
String comparisons in PowerShell are typically case-insensitive by default.
Strings themselves are case aware, meaning they know that an
A is a different glyph than an
a and it will remember which was used, but the normal comparison operators (
-in, etc.) are all case-insensitive.
You have to specify the case-sensitive versions for case-sensitive comparisons (
-cin, etc.). You can also specify the explicitly case-insensitive operators (
If you want to force the characters to a specific case, you can do this:
#Set characters to lower case
$user = $user.ToLower();
#Set characters to upper case
$user = $user.ToUpper();
But there is no property of strings that marks them as inherently case-insensitive.
