PowerShell: Shortening Web Service Type Names with a Hashtable

When you use the New-WebServiceProxy class, you probably have noticed that PowerShell dynamically generates some really ugly type names. For example, if we get a reference to the Bing web service (you’ll need to get an API key first):

$BingSearch = New-WebServiceProxy -Class BingSearch -Uri "http://api.search.live.net/search.wsdl?AppID=$ApiKey"

… and examine the types contained within it:

$BingSearch.GetType().Assembly.GetExportedTypes() | select FullName

… you’ll notice some ridiculously long type names based on your API key, such as:

Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.NewWebserviceProxy.AutogeneratedTypes.WebServiceProxyXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX.SearchRequest
