ConvertTo-XML - PowerShell command help and examples

Creates an XML-based representation of an object. (ConvertTo-XML)


NAME
ConvertTo-XML
SYNOPSIS
Creates an XML-based representation of an object.
SYNTAX
ConvertTo-XML [-InputObject] <psobject> [-As <string>] [-Depth <int>] [-NoTypeInformation] [<CommonParameters>]
DESCRIPTION
The ConvertTo-Xml cmdlet creates an XML-based representation of one or more Microsoft .NET Framework objects. To use this cmdlet, pipe one or more objects to the cmdlet, or use the InputObject parameter to specify the object. When you pipe multiple objects to ConvertTo-XML or use the InputObject parameter to submit multiple objects, ConvertTo-XML returns a single XML document that includes representations of all of the objects. This cmdlet is similar to Export-Clixml except that Export-Clixml stores the resulting XML in a file. ConvertTo-XML returns the XML, so you can continue to process it in Windows PowerShell.
PARAMETERS
-As <string> Determines the output format. Valid values are: -- String: Returns a single string. -- Stream: Returns an array of strings. -- Document: Returns an XmlDocument object. Stream is the default. Required? false Position? named Default value Stream Accept pipeline input? false Accept wildcard characters? false -Depth <int> Specifies how many levels of contained objects are included in the XML representation. The default value is 1. For example, if the object's properties also contain objects, to save an XML representation of the properties of the contained objects, you must specify a depth of 2. The default value can be overridden for the object type in the Types.ps1xml files. For more information, see about_Types.ps1xml. Required? false Position? named Default value 1 Accept pipeline input? false Accept wildcard characters? false -InputObject <psobject> Specifies the object to be converted. Enter a variable that contains the objects, or type a command or expression that gets the objects. You can also pipe objects to ConvertTo-XML.
