VerbsLifecycle.Enable Field


Updated: April 27, 2016

Applies To: Windows PowerShell

Specifies an action that configures a resource to an available or active state. For example, the Enable-PSBreakpoint cmdlet makes a breakpoint active.

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

public const string Enable

Field Value

Type: System.String

Pairs with Disable. For consistency with other cmdlets that perform the same action, do not use verbs such as Start or Begin 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.

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

[Cmdlet(VerbsLifecycle.Enable, "Dns")]
public class EnableDnsCommand : Cmdlet
