Get-WinEvent not showing Event "Message"

by Mar 13, 2017


How can I get at the 'message' data when using Get-WinEvent

for example with Get-EventLog one of the properties returned in Message which shows the text description of the event.

if I use Get-WinEvent it does not show this property, I would like to use get-winevent as it seems faster but I also want to be able to get the 'message' and also  left filter as it were) on the message, so if I wanted to look for events where the message container a certain string I could filter on this and return only item matching that string and the result would also show me the message text for each event.


Thanks very much
