VerbsCommon.Join Field


Updated: April 27, 2016

Applies To: Windows PowerShell

Specifies an action that combines resources into one resource. For example, the Join-Path cmdlet combines a path with a child path to create a single path.

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

public const string Join

Field Value

Type: System.String

This verb is paired with Split. For consistency with other cmdlets that perform the same action, do not use verbs such as Combine, Unite, Connect, or Associate 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(VerbsDiagnostic.Debug, "Dns")]
public class DebugDnsCommand : Cmdlet
