# NAME
Format-Custom

# SYNOPSIS

# SYNTAX
Format-Custom [[-Property] <Object[]>] [-Depth <int>] [-DisplayError] [-Expand <string>] [-Force] [-GroupBy <Object>] [-InputObject <psobject>] [-ShowError] [-View <string>] [<CommonParameters>]

# DESCRIPTION
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.

-Property <Object[]>
Specifies the object properties that appear in the display and the order in which they appear. Wildcards are permitted.

If you omit this parameter, the properties that appear in the display depend on the object being displayed. The parameter name ("Property") is optional. You cannot use the Property and View parameters in the same command.

The value of the Property parameter can be a new calculated property. To create a calculated property, use a hash table. Valid keys are:

-- Expression <string> or <script block>
-- Depth <int32>

<CommonParameters>
This cmdlet supports the common parameters: Verbose, Debug,
ErrorAction, ErrorVariable, WarningAction, WarningVariable,
OutBuffer and OutVariable. For more information, type,
"get-help about_commonparameters".

# INPUTS
System.Management.Automation.PSObject
You can pipe any object to Format-Custom

# OUTPUTS
Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.Internal.Format
Format-Custom returns the format objects that represent the display.

# NOTES

Format-Custom is designed to display views that are not just tables or just lists. To display an alternate table view, use Format-Table. To display an alternate list view, use Format-List.

You can also refer to Format-Custom by its built-in alias, "fc". For more information, see about_Aliases.

The GroupBy parameter assumes that the objects are sorted. Before using Format-Custom to group the objects, use Sort-Object to sort them.

# EXAMPLE 1

C:\PS>get-command start-transcript | format-custom -view MyView

# Description
-----------
This command formats information about the Start-Transcript cmdlet in the format defined by the MyView view, a custom view created by the user. To run this command successfully, you must first create a new PS1XML file, define the MyView view, and then use the Update-FormatData command to add the PS1XML file to Windows PowerShell.

# EXAMPLE 2

C:\PS>get-process Winlogon | format-custom

# Description
-----------
This command formats information about the Winlogon process in an alternate customized view. Because the command does not use the View parameter, Format-Custom uses a default custom view to format the data.
