I want this type of logging in my PowerShell script. I don't want to call an MSBuild project from PowerShell for this.
Is there any way to do this?
Each CMDLET has the common variables which contain. . .
You can specify Out Variable and then output the output of each command to a log file. This is how I like to do it. There may be better ways. Let me make a simple example.
Get-Service v* -OutVariable VService ## Note that my variable name "VService" does NOT have the dollar sign
you can do the same kind of thing with more than just output you can capture the warnings and errors with -WarningVariable and -ErrorVariable and maybe write those to a separate log.
But I need the script output in MSBuild output format
Ah I am not a developer so I have no idea what you are saying when you say MSBuild.
It looks a lot like XML so you may be able to play with the ConvertTo-Xml or Export-Clixml CMDLETs to make it work. Otherwise you would have to write your own format function to format table output into this XML Like "MSBuild" format. Sorry I missed that point.
