VerbsCommunications.Receive Field

Specifies an action that accepts information sent from a source. For example, the Receive-Job cmdlet retrieves the results of the Windows PowerShell background jobs in the current session.

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

Dim value As String

value = VerbsCommunications.Receive

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

This example shows how this field is used in the Cmdlet attribute.

[Cmdlet(VerbsCommunications.Receive, "Http")]
public class ReceiveHttpCommand : Cmdlet

This verb is paired with Send. For consistency with other cmdlets that perform the same action, do not use verbs such as Read, Accept, or Peek.

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 used to specify the Cmdlet attribute, see Cmdlet Attribute Declaration.

For more information about the guidelines for selecting verb names, see Cmdlet Verb Names.
