VerbsLifecycle.Start Field

Specifies an action that initiates an operation. For example, the Start-Service cmdlet starts a service.

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

Dim value As String

value = VerbsLifecycle.Start

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

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

[Cmdlet(VerbsLifecycle.Start, "Service")]
public class StartServiceCommand : Cmdlet

This verb is paired with Stop. For consistency with other cmdlets that perform the same action, do not use verbs such as Launch, Initiate, or Boot 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.
