Applies To: Windows PowerShell
Serves as a base class for control elements that are used to define how content is displayed, such as list and table controls. This class is introduced in Windows PowerShell 2.0.
Assembly: System.Management.Automation (in System.Management.Automation.dll)
Each control can group items and specify a header for the group. You can group by same property value, or result of evaluating a script block.
When the "shape" of formatting has been determined by previous objects, sometimes you want objects of different types to continue using that shape (table, list, or whatever) even if they specify their own views, and sometimes you want your view to take over. When OutOfBand is true, the view will apply regardless of previous objects that may have selected the shape.
Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
