Property Value

The actions that the system can apply to the file indicated by the FileName property.

The Verbs property enables you to determine the verbs that can be used with the file specified by the FileName property. You can set the Verb property to the value of any verb in the set. Examples of verbs are "Edit", "Open", "OpenAsReadOnly", "Print", and "Printto".

When you use the Verbs property, you must include the file name extension when you set the value of the FileName property. The file name extension determines the set of possible verbs.

The following code example displays the defined verbs for the chosen file name. If the user selects one of the defined verbs, the example starts a new process using the selected verb and the input file name.
