powershell format result of command

bibi92 asked
Last Modified: 2020-04-08

I search to format result on the below command :

$NetIPAddresses = (Get-NetIPAddress | where {$_.InterfaceAlias -match "10" -and $_.AddressFamily -eq "IPv4"}
) |  format-table IPAddress, InterfaceAlias -auto

echo $NetIPAddresses

IPAddress     InterfaceAlias
---------     --------------  HT-10  DT-10  DT-10  DT-10 AD-10

I want to group the result in three columns without column name:;;,,

Thank you

Best regards

This should do it; but note that now you don't really know anymore which entry belongs to which InterfaceAlias if you run this on a machine with a different configuration.
This sorts the output by the InterfaceAlias (so AD, DT, HT), so the output should actually be,;;,

Or do you need the actual order DT, AD, HT, and can you rely upon these always being there?
	Get-NetIPAddress |
		Where-Object {$_.InterfaceAlias -match "10" -and $_.AddressFamily -eq "IPv4"} |
		Group-Object -Property InterfaceAlias |
		Sort-Object Name |
		ForEach-Object {$_.Group.IPAddress -join ';'}
) -join ','

I need the actual order DT, AD, HT

Thank you
