VerbsCommon::Add Field


Updated: April 27, 2016

Applies To: Windows PowerShell

Specifies an action that adds a resource to a container, or attaches an item to another item. For example, the Add-Content cmdlet adds content to a file.

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

literal String^ Add

Field Value

Type: System::String^

This verb is paired with Remove. For consistency with other cmdlets that perform the same action, do not use verbs such as Append, Attach, Concatenate, or Insert 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 Approved Verbs for Windows PowerShell Commands.

This example shows how this field is used in the Cmdlet attribute.

[Cmdlet (VerbsCommon.Add, "Content")]
public class AddContentCommand : Cmdlet
