Win32_VideoConfiguration class

[The Win32_VideoConfiguration class is no longer available for use as of Windows XP; attempts to use it will generate a fatal error. Instead, use the properties contained in the Win32_VideoController, Win32_DesktopMonitor, and CIM_VideoControllerResolution classes.]

Represents a configuration of a video subsystem.

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

Members

The Win32_VideoConfiguration class has these types of members:

Properties

The Win32_VideoConfiguration class has these properties.

ActualColorResolution
Data type: uint32
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Units (Bits Per Pixel) , Deprecated

Current color depth of the video display.

AdapterChipType
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Deprecated

Name of the adapter chip.

Example: "s3"

AdapterCompatibility
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Key, Deprecated, MaxLen (256)

Name of the manufacturer of the adapter. This name can be used to compare the compatibility of this device with the needs of the computer system.

AdapterDACType
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Deprecated

Name of the digital-to-analog chip (DAC) used in the adapter.

AdapterDescription
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Deprecated

Description or descriptive name of the video adapter.

AdapterRAM
Data type: uint32
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Units (Bytes) , Deprecated

Memory size of the video adapter.

Example: 16777216

AdapterType
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Deprecated

Type of video adapter. The character set of this property is alphanumeric.

BitsPerPixel
Data type: uint32
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Deprecated

Actual number of bits per pixel representing the display. This may be scaled to the current video setting (represented by the ActualColorResolution property) of the user.

Example: 8

Caption
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: MaxLen (64)

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

ColorPlanes
Data type: uint32
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Deprecated

Current number of color planes used in the video display. A color plane is another way to represent pixel colors; instead of assigning a single RGB value to each a pixel, color planes separate the graphic into each of the primary color components (red, green, and blue), and store them in their own planes. This allows for greater color depths on 8 bit and 16 bit video systems. Present graphics systems have the bitwidth large enough to stores color depth information, making only one color plane necessary.

Example: 1

ColorTableEntries
Data type: uint32
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Deprecated

Number of color indexes in a color table for a video display. This property is used if the device has a color depth of no more than 8 bits per pixel. For devices with greater color depths, -1 is returned.

Example: 256

Description
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

Description of the CIM_Setting object. This property is inherited from CIM_Setting.

DeviceSpecificPens
Data type: uint32
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Deprecated

Current number of device-specific pens. A value of 0xFFFFFFFF means the device does not support pens. Pens are used to draw lines and the borders of polygonal objects.

Example: 3

DriverDate
Data type: datetime
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Deprecated

Date and time the current video driver was installed.

HorizontalResolution
Data type: uint32
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Deprecated

Current number of pixels in the horizontal direction (x-axis) of the display.

Example: 1024

InfFilename
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Deprecated

Path to the .inf file of the video driver.

InfSection
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Deprecated

Section of the .inf file where the Windows video information resides.

InstalledDisplayDrivers
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Deprecated

Name of the installed video driver.

MonitorManufacturer
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Deprecated

Name of the manufacturer of the display device.

Example: "NEC"

MonitorType
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Deprecated

Model name of the display device.

Example: "NEC 5FGp"

Name
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Key, Deprecated, MaxLen (256)

Identifying name for the video configuration class.

PixelsPerXLogicalInch
Data type: uint32
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Deprecated

Number of pixels per logical inch along the x-axis (horizontal direction) of the display.

PixelsPerYLogicalInch
Data type: uint32
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Deprecated

Number of pixels per logical inch along the y-axis (vertical direction) of the display.

RefreshRate
Data type: uint32
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Deprecated

Refresh rate of the video configuration. A value of 0 (zero) or 1 (one) indicates a default rate is being used.

Example: 72

ScanMode
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Deprecated

Interlace mode of the display device.

The values are:

"Interlaced"
"Non Interlaced"
ScreenHeight
Data type: uint32
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Deprecated, Units (Millimeters)

Height of the physical screen.

ScreenWidth
Data type: uint32
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Deprecated, Units (Millimeters)

Width of the physical screen.

SettingID
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: MaxLen (256)

Identifier by which the CIM_Setting object is known. This property is inherited from CIM_Setting.

SystemPaletteEntries
Data type: uint32
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Deprecated

Current number of color index entries reserved for system use. This value is only valid for display settings that use an indexed palette. Indexed palettes are not used for color depths greater than 8 bits per pixel. If the color depth is more than 8 bits per pixel, this value is set to NULL.

Example: 20

VerticalResolution
Data type: uint32
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Deprecated

Current number of pixels in the vertical direction (y-axis) of the display.

Example: 768

Remarks

The Win32_VideoConfiguration class is derived from CIM_Setting.
