ManagementCommitAttribute Class

The ManagementCommit attribute marks a method that is called when it is necessary to update a set of read-write properties in one, atomic operation.

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

[HostProtectionAttribute(SecurityAction::LinkDemand, MayLeakOnAbort = true)]
public ref class ManagementCommitAttribute sealed : public ManagementMemberAttribute


The HostProtectionAttribute attribute applied to this type or member has the following Resources property value: MayLeakOnAbort. The HostProtectionAttribute does not affect desktop applications (which are typically started by double-clicking an icon, typing a command, or entering a URL in a browser). For more information, see the HostProtectionAttribute class or SQL Server Programming and Host Protection Attributes.

The read-write properties of a class are marked with the ManagementConfigurationAttribute attribute. In addition, each read-write property can be one of two types: Apply or OnCommit. If a class has read-write properties that are configured as OnCommit, the class should have a method that is marked with the ManagementCommit attribute. The associated method will be called when all OnCommit properties have been set.

The marked method is not thread safe.

If no method is marked with the ManagementCommit attribute, the class manages the configuration updates by itself without any indication that the update has completed.

The method marked with the ManagementCommit attribute does not take any parameters and it has a void return type.


public class Process
    /// Key attribute marks a key property. Keys are not changeable.
    /// Keys have to be unique information.
    public int Id 
        get {    }
    /// ManagementConfiguration stands for read/write manageable
    /// property from a read/write field.
    public string UserDefinedString;

    void SaveOnDevice();


Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
