I'm calling the attached module (found here: http://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/scriptcenter/Get-LockedOutLocation-b2fd0cab)  from the following PowerShell script:

$Identity = Read-Host 'Please enter the user name of the locked account (e.g. jdoe)'
Get-LockedOutLocation -Identity $Identity
Read-Host 'Press Enter to continue...' | Out-Null

Open in new window


The output I expect is:
PS C:\Users\pkrueger\Desktop> C:\Users\pkrueger\Desktop\test.ps1
Please enter the user name of the locked account (e.g. jdoe): pktesting

Name      LockedOut DomainController              BadPwdCount AccountLockoutTime    LastBadPasswordAttempt
----      --------- ----------------              ----------- ------------------    ----------------------
pktesting      True DC1.fubar.domain.com           		0 12/16/2013 3:08:28 PM 6/3/2013 2:16:53 PM   
pktesting      True	DC2.fubar.domain.com            	0 12/16/2013 3:08:28 PM 4/23/2013 9:48:48 AM  
pktesting      True	DC3.fubar.domain.com           		6 12/16/2013 3:08:28 PM 12/16/2013 3:08:28 PM 
pktesting      True	DC4.fubar.domain.com            	0 12/16/2013 3:08:28 PM 2/21/2013 10:25:01 AM 


User               : pktesting
DomainController   : DC1.fubar.domain.com
EventId            : 4740
LockedOutTimeStamp : 12/16/2013 3:08:28 PM
Message            : A user account was locked out.
LockedOutLocation  : DUMMYSTATION1

Press Enter to continue...: 

Open in new window


However, what I get is this:
PS C:\Users\pkrueger\Desktop> C:\Users\pkrueger\Desktop\test.ps1
Please enter the user name of the locked account (e.g. jdoe): pktesting

Name      LockedOut DomainController              BadPwdCount AccountLockoutTime    LastBadPasswordAttempt
----      --------- ----------------              ----------- ------------------    ----------------------
pktesting      True DC1.fubar.domain.com                    0 12/16/2013 3:08:28 PM 6/3/2013 2:16:53 PM   
pktesting      True DC2.fubar.domain.com                    0 12/16/2013 3:08:28 PM 4/23/2013 9:48:48 AM  
pktesting      True DC3.fubar.domain.com                    6 12/16/2013 3:08:28 PM 12/16/2013 3:08:28 PM 
pktesting      True DC4.fubar.domain.com                    0 12/16/2013 3:08:28 PM 2/21/2013 10:25:01 AM 



Press Enter to continue...: 

User               : pktesting
DomainController   : DC1.fubar.domain.com
EventId            : 4740
LockedOutTimeStamp : 12/16/2013 3:08:28 PM
Message            : A user account was locked out.
LockedOutLocation  : DUMMYSTATION1

Open in new window



How can I get the detailed lock information to show up before the "enter to continue" line. The function's done at that point, right?

Try if pushing the results out to the console explicitely will help:
$Identity = Read-Host 'Please enter the user name of the locked account (e.g. jdoe)'
Get-LockedOutLocation -Identity $Identity | Out-Host
Read-Host 'Press Enter to continue...' | Out-Null

Open in new window
