System.Object
  System.Attribute
    System.Management.Instrumentation.ManagementNameAttribute

Namespace:  System.Management.Instrumentation
Assembly:  System.Core (in System.Core.dll)

[AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Parameter, AllowMultiple = false)]
[HostProtectionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, MayLeakOnAbort = true)]
public sealed class ManagementNameAttribute : Attribute

The ManagementNameAttribute type exposes the following members.

  NameDescription
Public methodManagementNameAttributeInitializes a new instance of the ManagementNameAttribute class that specifies a value for the Name() property of the class.
Top

  NameDescription
Public propertyNameGets or sets the user-friendly name for an object. The object can be a method parameter or properties marked with the ManagementProbe, ManagementKey, or ManagementConfiguration attributes.
Public propertyTypeIdWhen implemented in a derived class, gets a unique identifier for this Attribute. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Top

  NameDescription
Public methodEqualsInfrastructure. Returns a value that indicates whether this instance is equal to a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeReturns the hash code for this instance. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodIsDefaultAttributeWhen overridden in a derived class, indicates whether the value of this instance is the default value for the derived class. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Public methodMatchWhen overridden in a derived class, returns a value that indicates whether this instance equals a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Top

  NameDescription
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate method_Attribute.GetIDsOfNamesMaps a set of names to a corresponding set of dispatch identifiers. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate method_Attribute.GetTypeInfoRetrieves the type information for an object, which can be used to get the type information for an interface. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate method_Attribute.GetTypeInfoCountRetrieves the number of type information interfaces that an object provides (either 0 or 1). (Inherited from Attribute.)
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate method_Attribute.InvokeProvides access to properties and methods exposed by an object. (Inherited from Attribute.)

It might be inconvenient to rename method parameters to present WMI clients with more user-friendly names. This attribute lets you assign user-friendly WMI names while retaining your existing internal naming conventions.

NoteNote

The HostProtectionAttribute attribute applied to this type or member has the following Resources property value: MayLeakOnAbort. The HostProtectionAttribute does not affect desktop applications (which are typically started by double-clicking an icon, typing a command, or entering a URL in a browser). For more information, see the HostProtectionAttribute class or SQL Server Programming and Host Protection Attributes.

In the following example, the integer parameter remains i internally, but will be exposed as "The Value" to WMI clients.

[ManagementTask]
static public int PrintValue([ManagementName("The Value")]int i)
{
   Console.WriteLine("The Value is {0:x}", i);
   return i;
}
