How to use String.Format in PowerShell?


Hah! (We’re back 😉 ) It’s as easy as that:

PS > [string] :: Format( "Hello {0} {1} :-)", "Daniel", "Walzenbach")
Hello Daniel Walzenbach :-)

Needless to say that other formatting – like Currency formatting – works as well

PS > [string] :: Format( "{0:C}", 1234567890)
$1,234,567,890.00

Check out Formatting Types on the .NET Framework Developer’s Guide or SteveX Compiled – String Formatting in C# (nice cheat sheet) for more examples.

Cheers!
