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();
