NavigationCmdletProvider Class

Serves as the base class for providers that perform navigation operations against items in a multi-level data store.

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

Dim instance As NavigationCmdletProvider

public abstract class NavigationCmdletProvider : ContainerCmdletProvider
public abstract class NavigationCmdletProvider extends ContainerCmdletProvider
public abstract class NavigationCmdletProvider extends ContainerCmdletProvider

Developers should derive from this class to implement methods that allow users to use recursive commands, nested containers, and relative paths.

For more information about providers, see Windows PowerShell Providers.

Windows PowerShell provides a TemplateProvider.cs file that is available on the Windows SDK. To start writing your own provider make a copy of this file and use that copy to create your provider, removing any functionality that you do not need. For more information about designing a provider, see Designing Your Windows PowerShell Provider.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
