Get-FormatData

Short description
Gets the formatting data in the current session.

Syntax
Get-FormatData [[-TypeName] <string[]>] [<CommonParameters>]

Description
The Get-FormatData cmdlet gets the formatting data in the current session.  

The formatting data in the session includes formatting data from Format.ps1xml formatting files (such as those in t
he $pshome directory), formatting data for modules that you import into the session, and formatting data for comman
ds that you import into your session by using the Import-PSSession cmdlet.

You can use this cmdlet to examine the formatting data. Then, you can use the Export-FormatData cmdlet to serialize
 the objects (convert them to XML) and save them in Format.ps1xml files.

For more information about formatting files in Windows PowerShell, see about_Format.ps1xml.
