CmdletProvider.ShouldContinue Method

Sends a query to the user to confirm that the operation should be performed. The variants of this method can send the query with or without providing yes-to-all and no-to-all options.

Windows PowerShell provides should-process and should-continue functionality to providers for confirming operations. Although both processes can be used to confirm an operation with the user, a call to the System.Management.Automation.Provider.CmdletProvider.ShouldProcess method can be affected by preference settings and command-line parameters that can specify whether the query is or is not displayed. In contrast, a call to the System.Management.Automation.Provider.CmdletProvider.ShouldContinue method is not affected by preference settings or command-line parameters; the query is always displayed to the user.

For more information about providers, see Windows PowerShell Providers.
