	ManagementOperationObserver watcher

Full trust for the immediate caller. This member cannot be used by partially trusted code. For more information, see Using Libraries from Partially Trusted Code.

The following example calls the Get method to asynchronously get an instance of the ManagementObject class.

using System;
using System.Management;

public class AsyncGetExample
    public AsyncGetExample() 
        ManagementObject o = 
            new ManagementObject(

        // Set up handlers for asynchronous get
        ManagementOperationObserver ob = 
            new ManagementOperationObserver();
        ob.Completed += new

        // Get the object asynchronously

        // Wait until operation is completed
        while (!this.Completed)
            System.Threading.Thread.Sleep (1000);

        // Here you can use the object


    private bool completed = false;

    private void Done(object sender,
        CompletedEventArgs e)
        Console.WriteLine("async Get completed !");
        completed = true;

    private bool Completed
            return completed;

    public static void Main()
        AsyncGetExample example =
            new AsyncGetExample();
