Command Class

Defines a command that contains a single cmdlet or script. The Command object is used by the PowerShell and Pipeline objects to define a single command.

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

Dim instance As Command

Public NotInheritable Class Command
public final class Command
public final class Command

The Command object can be used in two ways.

  • The AddCommand method of the PowerShell object can use the Command object when creating a pipeline.

  • The Invoke or InvokeAsync methods of the Pipeline object can use the Command object when invoking the pipeline.

    In this case, the Command objects are contained in a CommandCollection that is accessed through the Commands property.

Windows PowerShell provides two classes that can define a command. The PSCommand class allows you to build a pipeline of commands (A|B|C) that contain one or more cmdlets and scripts. In contrast, the Command class allows you to specify only a single cmdlet or script in the command.

This class cannot be inherited.
