ManagementClass Constructor (String, ObjectGetOptions)
Initializes a new instance of the ManagementClass class initialized to the given WMI class path using the specified options. 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.
Assembly: System.Management (in System.Management.dll)
- Type: System.String

The following example shows how to initialize a ManagementClass variable with a ManagementClass constructor. The example lists the methods, properties, and qualifiers (including the amended qualifiers) for the created class.
Imports System Imports System.Management Class Sample Public Overloads Shared Function _ Main(ByVal args() As String) As Integer ' Get the WMI class ' Options specify that amended qualifiers ' should be retrieved along with the class Dim o As New ObjectGetOptions( _ Nothing, System.TimeSpan.MaxValue, True) Dim c As New ManagementClass("Win32_ComputerSystem", o) ' Get the methods in the class Dim methods As MethodDataCollection methods = c.Methods ' display the methods Console.WriteLine("Method Names: ") For Each method As MethodData In methods Console.WriteLine(method.Name) Next Console.WriteLine() ' Get the properties in the class Dim properties As PropertyDataCollection properties = c.Properties ' display the properties Console.WriteLine("Property Names: ") For Each p As PropertyData In properties Console.WriteLine(p.Name) Next Console.WriteLine() ' Get the Qualifiers in the class Dim qualifiers As QualifierDataCollection = _ c.Qualifiers() ' display the qualifiers Console.WriteLine("Qualifier Names: ") For Each qualifier As QualifierData In qualifiers Console.WriteLine(qualifier.Name) Next End Function End Class
