ManagementClass Constructor (String, ObjectGetOptions)

Initializes a new instance of the ManagementClass class initialized to the given WMI class path using the specified options. The class represents a Common Information Model (CIM) management class from WMI such as Win32_LogicalDisk, which can represent a disk drive, and Win32_Process, which represents a process such as Notepad.exe. For more information, see "Win32 Classes" in the Windows Management Instrumentation documentation in the MSDN Library at http://msdn.microsoft.com/library.

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

public ManagementClass (
	string path,
	ObjectGetOptions options
)
public ManagementClass (
	String path, 
	ObjectGetOptions options
)
public function ManagementClass (
	path : String, 
	options : ObjectGetOptions
)

Parameters

path

The path to the WMI class. The class represents a CIM management class from WMI. CIM classes represent management information including hardware, software, processes, and so on. For more information about the CIM classes available in Windows, see "Win32 classes" in the Windows Management Instrumentation documentation in the MSDN Library at http://msdn.microsoft.com/library.

options

An ObjectGetOptions representing the options to use when retrieving the WMI class.

The following example shows how to initialize a ManagementClass variable with a ManagementClass constructor. The example lists the methods, properties, and qualifiers (including the amended qualifiers) for the created class.

using System;
using System.Management;

public class Sample 
{    
    public static void Main() 
    {

        // Get the WMI class
        //Options specify that amended qualifiers
        // should be retrieved along with the class
        ObjectGetOptions o = new ObjectGetOptions(
            null, System.TimeSpan.MaxValue, true); 
        ManagementClass c = 
            new ManagementClass("Win32_ComputerSystem",o);

        // Get the methods in the class
        MethodDataCollection methods =
            c.Methods;

        // display the methods
        Console.WriteLine("Method Names: ");
        foreach (MethodData method in methods)
        {
            Console.WriteLine(method.Name);
        }
        Console.WriteLine();

        // Get the properties in the class
        PropertyDataCollection properties =
            c.Properties;

        // display the properties
        Console.WriteLine("Property Names: ");
        foreach (PropertyData property in properties)
        {
            Console.WriteLine(property.Name);
        }
        Console.WriteLine();

        // Get the Qualifiers in the class
        QualifierDataCollection qualifiers =
            c.Qualifiers;

        // display the qualifiers
        Console.WriteLine("Qualifier Names: ");
        foreach (QualifierData qualifier in qualifiers)
        {
            Console.WriteLine(qualifier.Name);
        }

    }
}
