ContainerCmdletProvider.RenameItem Method (String, String)


Updated: April 27, 2016

Applies To: Windows PowerShell

Renames the item at the specified path.

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

protected virtual void RenameItem(
	string path,
	string newName


Type: System.String

The path to the item to be renamed.

Type: System.String

The new name for the item. This name should always be relative to the parent container.

When implementing this method, do not perform a move operation. This method should only change the name of an item without changing the container it is located in.

This method defines provider-specific functionality for the Rename-Item cmdlet. If this implementation of the cmdlet requires additional parameters, the provider must also implement the RenameItemDynamicParameters method.

For more information about implementing providers (including samples), see Writing a Windows PowerShell Provider.
