VerbsData.Export Field

Specifies an action that encapsulates the primary input into a persistent data store, such as a file, or an interchange format. For example, the Export-Csv cmdlet converts .NET Framework objects into a series of comma-separated value (CSV) variable-length strings and saves the strings in a CSV file.

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

Dim value As String

value = VerbsData.Export

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

The following example shows how this field is used in the Cmdlet attribute:

[Cmdlet(VerbsData.Export, "Xml")]
public class ExportXmlCommand : Cmdlet

This verb is paired with Import. For consistency with other cmdlets that perform the same action, do not use verbs such as Extract or Backup 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.
