    get-html

    Bit OT, but psh related. So this guy has a get-html script that grabs the
    console as formatted html. So how do I paste this output in OneNote or Word
    so it shows up rendered and not just text? I have been scratching my head
    for some time. tia

    not sure the right syntax but basically you have to put it on the
    clipboard and specify the contents are html etc..

    Re: get-html

    I got the cut/paste thing. Let me ask another way. I get the html text
    instead of the formatted html.

    how are you, programatically putting the html on the clipboard, how
    are you specifying that the contents of the clip are to be treated as
    rich html, rather than as dumb plain text?

    It's a couple of extra steps, but what I generally do is write the HTML to a
    file and launch that file using IE (from a script that wraps
    get-bufferhtml). When you copy/paste from IE, it shows up correctly in Word.
    I don't have the script on this PC or I'd post it.

    With PSCX 1.1.1 you can do this:

    gps | ConvertTo-Html Name, Id, Handles | Join-String | Set-Clipboard -Html
    {$_}

    Without PSCX 1.1.1, it gets tricky because you have to call the
    System.Windows.Forms.Clipboard.SetText($text, 'Html') method on a separate
    thread that is configured STA.
