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

Dim instance As Cmdlet
Dim text As String


public void WriteVerbose (
	string text
public void WriteVerbose (
	String text
public function WriteVerbose (
	text : String



The message to be sent to the host.

Exception typeCondition

The pipeline is stopped. The pipeline was terminated either before the call was made or while the call was in progress. By default, the cmdlet should allow the caller of the processing record method to catch this exception.


The call cannot be completed at this time or cannot be completed from this thread. For more information, see the following Remarks section.

This method is used to send general user-level information that is not related to specific error conditions. For example, these messages could inform the user what the cmdlet is doing while it is performing a task. In addition, this method can be used to send information that must be localized.

This method can be called only from within the implementation of the BeginProcessing, ProcessRecord, and EndProcessing methods and only from that thread. If this call is made from outside these implementations or from another thread, an InvalidOperationException exception is thrown.
