VerbsCommunications.Read Field

Specifies an action that acquires information from a source. For example, the Read-Host cmdlet reads a line of input from the console.

Namespace: System.Management.Automation
Assembly: System.Management.Automation (in System.Management.Automation.dll)
Dim value As String

value = VerbsCommunications.Read

public const string Read
public static final String Read
public const var Read : String

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

[Cmdlet(VerbsCommunications.Read, "Host")]
public class ReadHostCommand : Cmdlet

This verb is paired with Write. Do not use verbs such as Acquire, Prompt, or Get 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 used to specify the Cmdlet attribute, see Cmdlet Attribute Declaration.

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