- As a table - As a list - As a custom actionWrite-FormatView supports displaying information in any of these ways. This display will be applied to any information that would be displayed to the user (or piped into an Out- cmdlet) that has the typename you specify. A typename can be anything you like, and it can be set in a short piece of PowerShell script:
$object.psObject.Typenames.Clear() $null = $object.psObject.TypeNames.Add("MyTypeName").Since it is so simple to change the type names, it's equally simple to make your own way to display data, and to write functions that leverage the formatting system in PowerShell to help you write the information. This can streamline your use of PowerShell, and open up many new possibilities.
