MethodDataCollection Class

 

Represents the set of methods available in the collection.

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

System.Object
  System.Management.MethodDataCollection

public class MethodDataCollection : ICollection, IEnumerable

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubpropertyCount

Gets the number of objects in the MethodDataCollection collection.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyIsSynchronized

Gets a value that indicates whether the object is synchronized.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyItem[String]

Gets the specified MethodData from the MethodDataCollection.

System_CAPS_pubpropertySyncRoot

Gets the object to be used for synchronization.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodAdd(String)

Adds a MethodData to the MethodDataCollection. This overload will add a new method with no parameters to the collection.

System_CAPS_pubmethodAdd(String, ManagementBaseObject, ManagementBaseObject)

Adds a MethodData to the MethodDataCollection. This overload will add a new method with the specified parameter objects to the collection.

System_CAPS_pubmethodCopyTo(Array, Int32)

Copies the MethodDataCollection into an array.

System_CAPS_pubmethodCopyTo(MethodData[], Int32)

Copies the MethodDataCollection to a specialized MethodData array.

System_CAPS_pubmethodEquals(Object)

Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_protmethodFinalize()

Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetEnumerator()

Returns an enumerator for the MethodDataCollection.

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetHashCode()

Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetType()

Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_protmethodMemberwiseClone()

Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodRemove(String)

Removes a MethodData from the MethodDataCollection.

System_CAPS_pubmethodToString()

Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethodIEnumerable.GetEnumerator()

Returns an IEnumerator that iterates through the MethodDataCollection.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodAsParallel()

Overloaded. Enables parallelization of a query.(Defined by ParallelEnumerable.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodAsQueryable()

Overloaded. Converts an IEnumerable to an IQueryable.(Defined by Queryable.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodCast<TResult>()

Casts the elements of an IEnumerable to the specified type.(Defined by Enumerable.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodOfType<TResult>()

Filters the elements of an IEnumerable based on a specified type.(Defined by Enumerable.)
