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

[Cmdlet(VerbsCommon.Get, "Content")]
public class GetContentCommand : Cmdlet

This verb is paired with Set. For consistency with other cmdlets that perform the same action, do not use verbs such as Read, Open, Cat, Type, Dir, Obtain, Dump, Acquire, Examine, Find, or Search 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.
