Holds event data for the EventArrived event.
Assembly: System.Management (in System.Management.dll)
Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.(Inherited from Object.)
Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection.(Inherited from Object.)
Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)
Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)
The following asynchronous example sets up a WMI timer to raise an event every second, and removes it when no longer needed. The ManagementEventWatcher defines several .NET Framework events which are raised when WMI events are delivered. Delegates are attached to these events for handling the incoming data.
