Description

Use the Set-NAVApplicationObjectProperty cmdlet to change the values of the Version List, Date, Time, or Modified properties in the specified text files. You can use the Get-NAVApplicationObjectProperty cmdlet to extract information about the application objects before you change them.

Examples

EXAMPLE 1

PS C:\>Set-NAVApplicationObjectProperty -TargetPath .\COD1.txt -VersionListProperty "DemoV1" -ModifiedProperty Yes -DateTimeProperty (Get-Date -Format g)

This example sets new the values for the Version List, Date, Time, and Modified properties in the specified target file. The date and time is set to the current date and time. When the update completes, the status is shown, including the updated values of the properties.

EXAMPLE 2

PS C:\>Set-NAVApplicationObjectProperty -TargetPath .\COD1.TXT -DateTimeProperty (Get-Date -Year 2017 -Month 1 -Day 1 -Hour 0 -Minute 0 -Format g) }

This example sets a new value for the Date and Time properties in the specified target file. The date and time is set to a specific, locale-agnostic date and time, January 1st, 2017. When the update completes, the status is shown, including the updated values of the properties.

EXAMPLE 3

PS C:\>Merge-NAVApplicationObject -OriginalPath .\ORIGINAL\*.txt -ModifiedPath .\MODIFIED\*.txt -TargetPath .\TARGET\*.txt -ResultPath .\RESULT -Force -PassThru |
          Where-Object MergeResult -eq 'Merged' |
          foreach { Set-NAVApplicationObjectProperty -TargetPath $_.ResultPath -DateTimeProperty (Get-Date -Year 2017 -Month 1 -Day 1 -Hour 0 -Minute 0 -Format g) }

This example sets a new value for the Date and Time properties in the target files that are passed through by the Merge-NAVApplicationObject cmdlet. The date and time is set to a specific, locale-agnostic date and time, January 1st, 2017. When the update completes, the status is shown, including the updated values of the properties.

EXAMPLE 4

PS C:\>$result = Merge-NAVApplicationObject -OriginalPath .\ORIGINAL\*.txt -ModifiedPath .\MODIFIED\*.txt -TargetPath .\TARGET\*.txt -ResultPath .\RESULT -Force
          $result |
          (Get-NAVApplicationObjectProperty -Source .\MODIFIED\COD9999.txt).VersionList
          (Get-NAVApplicationObjectProperty -Source .\TARGET\COD9999.txt).VersionList
          (Get-NAVApplicationObjectProperty -Source .\RESULT\COD9999.txt).VersionList

          Where-Object MergeResult -eq 'Merged' |
          foreach { Set-NAVApplicationObjectProperty -TargetPath $_.Result -VersionListProperty ($_.Modified.VersionList + "," + $_.Target.VersionList + "!");
          Get-NAVApplicationObjectProperty -Source $_.Result }

This example merges application objects, gets the VersionList property for the same application object in three different versions, and then sets a new value for the version list. When the update completes, the status is shown, including the updated values of the properties.
