InvokeMethodOptions Constructor (ManagementNamedValueCollection, TimeSpan)


Initializes a new instance of the InvokeMethodOptions class for an invoke operation using the specified values.

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

Public Sub New (
	context As ManagementNamedValueCollection,
	timeout As TimeSpan


Type: System.Management.ManagementNamedValueCollection

A provider-specific, named-value pairs object to be passed through to the provider.

Type: System.TimeSpan

The length of time to let the operation perform before it times out. The default value is MaxValue. Setting this parameter will invoke the operation semisynchronously.

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 invokes the Win32_Process::Create method to start a new process of Calc.exe. The InvokeMethodOptions class is used to invoke the method.
