        <maml:para>The Format-Custom cmdlet formats the output of a command as defined in an alternate view. Format-Custom is designed to display views that are not just tables or just lists. You can use the views defined in the *format.PS1XML files in the Windows PowerShell directory, or you can create your own views in new PS1XML files and use the Update-FormatData cmdlet to add them to Windows PowerShell.</maml:para>

        <maml:para>The Format-Table cmdlet formats the output of a command as a table with the selected properties of the object in each column.

        <maml:para>You can also use a hash table to add calculated properties to an object before displaying it and to specify the column headings in the table. To add a calculated property, use the Property or GroupBy parameters.</maml:para>

                <maml:para>This command shows how to use a calculated property in a table.

                <maml:para>The command uses the Get-Process cmdlet to get all processes named &quot;Notepad&quot; on the local computer.

                <maml:para>The TotalRunningTime property is specified by a hash table with two keys, Label and Expression. The name of the property is assigned to the Label key. The calculation is assigned to the Expression key. The expression gets the StartTime property of each process object and subtracts it from the result of a Get-Date command, which gets the current date (and time).

            <dev:remarks>
                <maml:para>These commands are similar to the previous command, except that these commands use the Get-CimObject cmdlet and the Win32_Process class to display information about Notepad processes on a remote computer.</maml:para>
                <maml:para>The first command uses the Get-CimObject cmdlet to get instances of the Common Information Model (CIM) Win32_Process class that describes all of the processes on the Server01 computer that are named Notepad.exe. The command stores the process information in the $processes variable.</maml:para>
                <maml:para>The second command uses a pipeline operator (|) to send the process information in the $processes variable to the Format-Table cmdlet, which displays the ProcessName of each process along with a new calculated property.</maml:para>
                <maml:para>The command assigns the name of the new calculated property, Total Running Time, to the Label key. The script block that is assigned to the Expression key calculates how long the process has been running by subtracting the creation date of the process from the current date. The Get-Date cmdlet gets the current date. Then, the creation date is subtracted from the current date. The result is the value of Total Running Time.</maml:para>

                <maml:para>The first command sets the current location to the HKLM:\Software registry key.</maml:para>
                <maml:para>The second and third commands have the same effect. They use the Get-Acl cmdlet to get the security descriptor of the MyKey registry subkey (HKLM\Software\MyCompany\MyKey).

                <maml:para>Because Out-File is not supported by the Windows PowerShell Registry provider, you must specify either the file system drive name, such as &quot;C:&quot;, or the name of the provider followed by two colons as well as the file system drive name and path, &quot;FileSystem::C:\PS&quot;, in the value of the FilePath parameter.

        <maml:para>The Out-String cmdlet converts the objects that Windows PowerShell manages into an array of strings. By default, Out-String accumulates the strings and returns them as a single string, but you can use the stream parameter to direct Out-String to return one string at a time. This cmdlet lets you search and manipulate string output as you would in traditional shells when object manipulation is less convenient.</maml:para>
