VerbsCommon.Add Field

Specifies an action that adds a resource to a container, or attaches an item to another item. For example, the Add-Content cmdlet adds content to a file.

Namespace: System.Management.Automation
Assembly: System.Management.Automation (in System.Management.Automation.dll)

Dim value As String

value = VerbsCommon.Add

literal String^ Add
public static final String Add
public const var Add : String

This example shows how this field is used in the Cmdlet attribute.

[Cmdlet (VerbsCommon.Add, "Content")]
public class AddContentCommand : Cmdlet

This verb is paired with Remove. For consistency with other cmdlets that perform the same action, do not use verbs such as Append, Attach, Concatenate, or Insert for this action.

The verb portion of a cmdlet name specifies the action that is taken by the cmdlet and is specified by the Cmdlet attribute. For more information about the declaration syntax that is used to specify the Cmdlet attribute, see Cmdlet Attribute Declaration.

For more information about the guidelines for selecting verb names, see Cmdlet Verb Names.
