Powershell function that recursively walks all project items within a project and lets you execute an action on each one

Hey, why did you change the casing with $item and $Item. I assume in PS that doesn't matter, but it seems odd that you'd do that. ;)

hi,

does this not work with visual studio 2015? For some reason, the filecodemodel property of all my code files in a project/solution is empty and hence the functions are skipping those files. I modified the scripts to use the extension of the file instead to get around this which is a little bit hacky. Any help with this would be much appreciated and thanks for the scripts.
