Updated: April 27, 2016

Applies To: Windows PowerShell

Specifies an action that makes a resource visible to the user. For example, the Show-EventLog cmdlet displays the event logs of the local or a remote computer. This field is introduced in Windows PowerShell 2.0.

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

public const string Show

Field Value

Type: System.String

This verb is paired with Hide. For consistency with other cmdlets that perform the same action, do not use the verb Display or Produce 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.Show, "Resource")]
public class ShowResourceCommand : Cmdlet
