VerbsCommon.Clear Field

Specifies an action that removes all resources from a container, but does not delete the container. For example, the Clear-Content cmdlet removes the contents of a file, but does not delete the file.


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

'Usage
Dim value As String

value = VerbsCommon.Clear

'Declaration
Public Const Clear As String
public static final String Clear
public const var Clear : String

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

[Cmdlet(VerbsCommon.Clear, "Content")]
public class ClearContentCommand : Cmdlet

For consistency with other cmdlets that perform the same action, do not use verbs such as Flush, Erase, Release, Unmark, Unset, or Nullify 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 Cmdlet Verb Names.
