Start-UDDashboard -Design Parameter Gone?

I’m new to this forum (and to UD) so please don’t chop my head off if this is already known. I didn’t see it posted, but my last cup of coffee was 8 hrs ago. It seems in 2.5.3 that Start-UDDashboard no longer has a -Design parameter as shown in the online documentation for Grid Layout. Is this functionality moved to another function/cmdlet or gone?

Hey @skatterbrainz every question is a good question. This forum is not about chopping peoples’ heads off either. In-fact you can even earn yourself a badge by reading the rules and conducts of this forum :slight_smile: anyways back to your question…I take it you get an error if you do include the parameter which is no longer showing in 2.5.3? I think I have only used this once myself. Best thing for this type of problem is to log it as a bug on to let @adam know that something that was in previous version is no longer showing in latest version.

The -Design flag was moved to the Enterprise version as it controls both the design terminal and the UDGridLayout generation feature.

That makes sense. Thank you!

Thanks! I appreciate the positive atmosphere here. This is a very cool project and I’m already gaining ground on some projects I had tried to tackle using other tools and never had much success.


Is the -Design parameter working on 2.6.0? I have Premium but not Enterprise and I don’t see any handles on components when using -Design. Or this just doesn’t exist on “normal” Premium?

Handles visible and drag and drop working by using the -Draggable and -Resizable parameters.

$Dashboard = New-UDDashboard -Title 'Testing' -Content {
    New-UDGridLayout -Draggable -Resizable -Content {
        New-UDCard -Title "Card 1" -Id 'Card1' 
        New-UDCard -Title "Card 2" -Id 'Card2'
        New-UDCard -Title "Card 3" -Id 'Card3'

Start-UDDashboard -Dashboard $Dashboard -Port 10009 -Design
