The class represents a Common Information Model (CIM) management class from WMI such as Win32_LogicalDisk, which can represent a disk drive, and Win32_Process, which represents a process such as Notepad.exe. For more information, see "Win32 Classes" in the Windows Management Instrumentation documentation in the MSDN Library at http://msdn.microsoft.com/library.

The following example shows how to initialize a ManagementClass variable with a ManagementClass constructor. The example lists the methods, properties, and qualifiers for the created class.

using System;
using System.Management;

public class Sample 
{    
    public static void Main() 
    {

        // Get the WMI class
        ManagementClass c = 
            new ManagementClass("Win32_LogicalDisk");

        // Get the methods in the class
        MethodDataCollection methods =
            c.Methods;

        // display the methods
        Console.WriteLine("Method Names: ");
        foreach (MethodData method in methods)
        {
            Console.WriteLine(method.Name);
        }
        Console.WriteLine();

        // Get the properties in the class
        PropertyDataCollection properties =
            c.Properties;

        // display the properties
        Console.WriteLine("Property Names: ");
        foreach (PropertyData property in properties)
        {
            Console.WriteLine(property.Name);
        }
        Console.WriteLine();

        // Get the Qualifiers in the class
        QualifierDataCollection qualifiers =
            c.Qualifiers;

        // display the qualifiers
        Console.WriteLine("Qualifier Names: ");
        foreach (QualifierData qualifier in qualifiers)
        {
            Console.WriteLine(qualifier.Name);
        }

    }
}
