ToShortTimeString() vs .Converttodatetime( )

Hi All

I am doing a wmi query (Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_OperatingSystem) and im looking to format the LastBootUpTime

Select-Object CSName,@{ Name = “Last Restarted On” ; Expression = { $.Converttodatetime( $.LastBootUpTime ) } }

I am currently using the Converttodatetime( ) method, is there any way to use the ToShortTimeString() , im not opposed to builidng a hash table with that method either . im looking for just the Time no seconds .eg 11:00

thank you

Ill be using this rt do some conditional html formatting

[xml]$html = $Reboot   | ConvertTo-Html -fragment

#check each row, skipping the TH header row
for ($i=1;$i -le $;$i++) {
  $class = $html.CreateAttribute("class")
  #check the value of the last column and assign a class to the row
  if (($[$i].td[-1] -as [datetime]) -notlike '*11:00*') {                                          
    $class.value = "danger"  
    $[$i].Attributes.Append($class) | Out-Null

not sure if my conditional statement is on point

im looking to mark red all computers that didn’t reboot @ 11:00

You should be able to do this:


thanks again Dave! really appreciate your help today

Also, if you query the class using Get-CimInstance, you’ll get a DateTime by default.
