CIM_VideoControllerResolution class

The CIM_VideoControllerResolution class represents the various video modes that a video controller can support. Video modes are defined by the possible horizontal and vertical resolutions, refresh rate, scan mode, and number of color settings supported by a controller. The actual resolutions in use are the values specified in the CIM_VideoController object. Starting with Windows Vista, properties of this class replace the data in Win32_DisplayConfiguration.

Starting with Windows Vista, hardware that is not compatible with Windows Display Driver Model (WDDM) returns inaccurate property values for instances of this class.

Windows Server 2003:  This class returns accurate data.

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.

Syntax

[Provider("CIMWin32")]class CIM_VideoControllerResolution
{
  string Caption;
  string Description;
  uint32 HorizontalResolution;
  uint32 MaxRefreshRate;
  uint32 MinRefreshRate;
  uint64 NumberOfColors;
  uint32 RefreshRate;
  uint16 ScanMode;
  string SettingID;
  uint32 VerticalResolution;
};

Members

The CIM_VideoControllerResolution class has these types of members:

Properties

The CIM_VideoControllerResolution class has these properties.

Caption
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

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

Description
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

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

HorizontalResolution
Data type: uint32
Access type: Read-only

Horizontal resolution, in pixels.

MaxRefreshRate
Data type: uint32
Access type: Read-only

Maximum refresh rate when a range of rates is supported at the specified resolutions, in hertz.

MinRefreshRate
Data type: uint32
Access type: Read-only

Minimum refresh rate when a range of rates is supported at the specified resolutions, in hertz.

NumberOfColors
Data type: uint64
Access type: Read-only

Number of colors supported at the current resolution.

For more information about using uint64 values in scripts, see Scripting in WMI.

RefreshRate
Data type: uint32
Access type: Read-only

Refresh rate, in hertz. If a range of rates is supported, use the MinRefreshRate and MaxRefreshRate properties, and set this property to 0.

ScanMode
Data type: uint16
Access type: Read-only

Scan mode at which the controller operates.

ValueMeaning

SettingID
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

Part of the key for an instance of this class. This property is inherited from CIM_Setting.

VerticalResolution
Data type: uint32
Access type: Read-only

Controller's vertical resolution, in pixels.

Remarks

WMI implements the CIM_VideoControllerResolution class. The CIM_VideoControllerResolution class is a dynamic 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.
