I was wondering what the "::" like in the following example means?
Thanks for your answer.
The :: is part of the calling sequence when you call native .NET classes or get static fields.
In this the .NET class is System.DateTime and the static field is Now.
You can explore more about these kinds of members in an example like this by deleting the word Now, so all you are left with is
and doing tab completion to see what else comes up. If you want to get a more explicit list of static members on an object check the MSDN documentation for the class or just type the
| gm -static
In this case you could type:
[DateTime] | gm -static
To get more on the Now member you could type
[DateTime]::Now | gm -static
Thank you for the clarification
