ManagementCreateAttribute Class

ManagementCreateAttribute Class

The ManagementCreateAttribute is used to indicate that a method creates a new instance of a managed entity.

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

[AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Constructor|AttributeTargets.Method, AllowMultiple = false)]
[HostProtectionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, MayLeakOnAbort = true)]
public sealed class ManagementCreateAttribute : ManagementNewInstanceAttribute


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 lifetime of a managed entity is not bound to the lifetime of the .NET object representing it. The provider can use the method marked with this attribute to create a new instance of the corresponding managed entity.

The method parameters should have the same name and type as the parameters of the class binding constructor.

Use of this attribute does not have any affect on registration of the WMI class in the repository. It is only used at runtime.

The following example demonstrates how to use the ManagementCreate attribute.

public class ProcessInstance
     public int Id; 

     public ProcessInstance StartProcess(string cmdLine)
        ProcessInstance newProcess = new ProcessInstance(cmdLine);
        return newProcess;

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