SPCmdletPipeBind<TCmdletObject> class

An abstract class that represents a binding for pipeline and command-line input to PowerShell cmdlet parameters. This generic base class for SharePoint pipebind classes takes a generic type of TCmdletObject. The SPCmdletPipeBind<TCmdletObject> class provides the abstract methods Read and Discover. The cmdlet classes use the Read method to retrieve results. The Read method retrieves the object instance that represents the parameters associated with the current pipebind object; the Discover method populates the information that is required to retrieve or recreate the given object. All derived classes must override and implement these methods.

Type parameters


An object representing the source of the data received from the pipeline or command-line parameters.

You can use this and other pipebind classes to simplify the handling of input parameters from the pipeline or the command line. Pipebind classes typically allow input parameters to be passed as objects, GUIDs that reference objects, or as string representations. Because pipebind types allow for the flexible representation of input data, each pipebind class must include constructors that initialize the object for the representations that it provides.

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