VerbsLifecycle.Wait Field

Specifies an action that pauses an operation until a specified event occurs. For example, the Wait-Job cmdlet pauses the command line until one or more of the background jobs are complete. This field is introduced in Windows PowerShell 2.0.


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

'Usage
Dim value As String

value = VerbsLifecycle.Wait

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

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

[Cmdlet(VerbsLifecycle.Wait, "Event")]
public class WaitEventCommand : Cmdlet

For consistency with other cmdlets that perform the same action, do not use verbs such as Pause or Sleep 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.
