Powershell Format-List problem

Hi,

I am running the following powershell command:


get-alert | where {$_.ResolutionState -eq 0 } | Format-List MonitoringObjectDisplayName,Name,ResolutionState,RepeatCount,TimeRaised


Which displays the following:

MonitoringObjectDisplayName : SQL1
Name                        : The SQL Server Service Broker or Database Mirroring
                               transport is disabled or not configured
ResolutionState             : 0
RepeatCount                 : 1
TimeRaised                  : 20/11/2007 6:41:23 PM

The problem is the TimeRaised field is no in LocalTime, it is GMT time I suspect. I want to convert it
to my local time. (In my case GMT+10) if I try the following it does not work

get-alert | where {$_.ResolutionState -eq 0 } | Format-List MonitoringObjectDisplayName,Name,ResolutionState,RepeatCount,TimeRaised.ToLocalTime()


MonitoringObjectDisplayName : SQL1
Name                        : The SQL Server Service Broker or Database Mirroring
                               transport is disabled or not configured
ResolutionState             : 0
RepeatCount                 : 1

** No TimeRaised field **

Any suggestions on the syntax to make this work?

Thanks,

Ward

You can use calculated fields for Format-List

Format-List MonitoringObjectDisplayName,Name,ResolutionState,RepeatCount,@{l="TimeRaised";E={$_.TimeRaised.ToLocalTime()}}

FYI: For more info on Calculated Properties look at help for format-table (it works the same.)
PS> get-help format-table -full
