VerbsCommunications.Send Field

Specifies an action that delivers information to a destination. For example, the Send-MailMessage cmdlet sends an e-mail message.

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

Dim value As String

value = VerbsCommunications.Send

literal String^ Send
public static final String Send
public const var Send : String

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

[Cmdlet(VerbsCommunications.Send, "Http")]
public class SendHttpCommand : Cmdlet

This verb is paired with Receive. For consistency with other cmdlets that perform the same action, do not use verbs such as Put, Broadcast, Mail, or Fax 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 used to specify the Cmdlet attribute, see Cmdlet Attribute Declaration.
