ManagementConfigurationAttribute Class

The ManagementConfiguration attribute indicates that a property or field represents a read-write WMI property.

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

[AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets::Property|AttributeTargets::Field, AllowMultiple = false)]
[HostProtectionAttribute(SecurityAction::LinkDemand, MayLeakOnAbort = true)]
public ref class ManagementConfigurationAttribute 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 property or field must be public. The class that contains the property must be marked with the ManagementEntityAttribute attribute.

Any fields or properties in the class that are not marked with this or another WMI Provider Extensions attribute will not be instrumented.

The following example shows how to use the ManagementConfiguration attribute to mark a property. This property is exposed to WMI.


// Use the ManagementConfiguration attribute to specify that a property
// is a read/write property in the provider. Consumers will be
// able to get and set this property value through WMI.
public double ReadableWritableProperty
    get { return this.propertyValue; }
    set { this.propertyValue = value; }


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