VerbsData.Import Field

Specifies an action that creates a resource from data stored in a persistent data store (such as a file) or an interchange format. For example, the Import-Csv cmdlet converts object properties in a CSV file into CSV versions of the original objects.

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

Dim value As String

value = VerbsData.Import

public const string Import
public static final String Import
public const var Import : String

The following example shows how this field is used in the Cmdlet attribute:

[Cmdlet(VerbsData.Import, "Xml")]
public class ImportXmlCommand : Cmdlet

This verb is paired with Export. For consistency with other cmdlets that perform the same action, do not use verbs such as BulkLoad or Load 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.
