VerbsData.Convert Field

Specifies an action that changes the data from one representation to another when the cmdlet supports bidirectional conversion, or the conversion between multiple data types. For example, the Convert-Path cmdlet converts a path from a Windows PowerShell path to a Windows PowerShell provider path.

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

Dim value As String

value = VerbsData.Convert

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

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

[Cmdlet(VerbsData.Convert, "Path")]
public class ConvertPathCommand : Cmdlet

For consistency with other cmdlets that perform the same action, do not use verbs such as Change, Resize, or Resample 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 Cmdlet Verb Names.
