CIM_VideoBIOSElement class

The CIM_VideoBIOSElement class represents the low-level software that is loaded into non-volatile storage and used to configure and access a computer system's video controller and display.

Important  The DMTF (Distributed Management Task Force) CIM (Common Information Model) classes are the parent classes upon which WMI classes are built. WMI currently supports only the CIM 2.x version schemas.

The following syntax is simplified from Managed Object Format (MOF) code and includes all of its inherited properties. Properties are listed in alphabetic order, not MOF order.

Members

The CIM_VideoBIOSElement class has these types of members:

Properties

The CIM_VideoBIOSElement class has these properties.

BuildNumber
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

Internal identifier for the compilation of this software element. This property is inherited from CIM_SoftwareElement.

Caption
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

Short textual description of the object. This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedSystemElement.

CodeSet
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

Code set used by the software element. This property is inherited from CIM_SoftwareElement.

Description
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

Textual description of the object. This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedSystemElement.

IdentificationCode
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

Manufacturer's identifier for the software element, such as a stock-keeping unit (SKU) or part number. This property is inherited from CIM_SoftwareElement.

InstallDate
Data type: datetime
Access type: Read-only

Date and time the object was installed. This property does not require a value to indicate that the object is installed. This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedSystemElement.

IsShadowed
Data type: boolean
Access type: Read-only

If TRUE, the video BIOS is shadowed.

LanguageEdition
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

Language edition of the software element. The language codes defined in ISO 639 should be used. When the software element represents a multilingual or international version of a product, the string "Multilingual" should be used. This property is inherited from CIM_SoftwareElement.

Manufacturer
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

Manufacturer of the software element This property is inherited from CIM_SoftwareElement.

Name
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

Name used to identify the software element This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedSystemElement.

OtherTargetOS
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

Manufacturer and operating system type for a software element when the TargetOperatingSystem property has a value of 1 ("Other"). When the TargetOperatingSystem property has a value of 1, this property must have a non-null value. For all other TargetOperatingSystem values, this property is null. This property is inherited from CIM_SoftwareElement.

SerialNumber
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

Assigned serial number of the software element. This property is inherited from CIM_SoftwareElement.

SoftwareElementID
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

Identifier for the software element that is designed to be used in conjunction with other keys to create a unique representation of the CIM_SoftwareElement class. This property is inherited from CIM_SoftwareElement.

SoftwareElementState
Data type: uint16
Access type: Read-only

State of a software element. This property is inherited from CIM_SoftwareElement.

ValueMeaning
0

Deployable

Describes the details necessary for successful distribution and the details (conditions and actions) required to create a software element in the installable state (that is, the next state).

1

Installable

Describes the details necessary for successful installation and the details (conditions and actions) required to create a software element in the executable state (that is, the next state).

2

Executable

Describes the details necessary for successful execution and the details (conditions and actions) required to create a software element in the running state (that is, the next state).

3

Running

Describes the details necessary to monitor and operate on a start element.

 

Status
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

Current status of the object. This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedSystemElement.

Values include the following:

"OK"
"Error"
"Degraded"
"Unknown"
"Pred Fail"
"Starting"
"Stopping"
"Service"
"Stressed"
"NonRecover"
"No Contact"
"Lost Comm"
TargetOperatingSystem
Data type: uint16
Access type: Read-only

Operating system environment. The value of this property does not ensure binary execution. The version of the operating system must be specified using the operating system version check. Also required is the architecture on which the operating system runs. The combination of these constructs allows the provider to clearly identify the level of operating system required for a particular software element. This property is inherited from CIM_SoftwareElement.

Version
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

Version of the operation.

The version of the operation should be in one of the following forms:

  • <major>.<minor>.<revision>
  • <major>.<minor><letter><revision>

This property is inherited from the CIM_SoftwareElement class.

Remarks

The CIM_VideoBIOSElement class is derived from CIM_SoftwareElement.

WMI does not implement this class.

This documentation is derived from the CIM class descriptions published by the DMTF. Microsoft may have made changes to correct minor errors, conform to Microsoft SDK documentation standards, or provide more information.
