EnumerationOptions Class

Provides a base class for query and enumeration-related options objects.

Namespace: System.Management
Assembly: System.Management (in system.management.dll)

public class EnumerationOptions : ManagementOptions
public class EnumerationOptions extends ManagementOptions
public class EnumerationOptions extends ManagementOptions

The following example initializes an EnumerationOptions variable with an EnumerationOptions constructor and then gets all the instances of a WMI class and its subclasses.

using System;
using System.Management;
public class RemoteConnect 
    public static void Main() 
        EnumerationOptions opt = new EnumerationOptions();
        // Will enumerate instances of the given class
        // and any subclasses.
        opt.EnumerateDeep = true;
        ManagementClass c = new ManagementClass("CIM_Service");
        foreach (ManagementObject o in c.GetInstances(opt))


Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
