Ternary operator in PowerShell – Stack Overflow

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/07/31

I like this built-in construct by fbehrens most:

$result = If ($condition) {"true"} Else {"false"}

Everything else is incidental complexity and thus to be avoided.

For use in or as an expression, not just an assignment, wrap it in $(), thus:

write-host $(If ($condition) {"true"} Else {"false"})

There are even more elegant constructs, but those require setting up an alias before using them.
