Property Value

When the property is changed after the management object has been bound to a WMI object, the management object is disconnected from the original WMI object and later rebound using the new options.

Full trust for the immediate caller. This member cannot be used by partially trusted code. For more information, see Using Libraries from Partially Trusted Code.

The following example initializes a new instance of the ManagementObject class and then change the default options for the ManagementObject.

using System;
using System.Management;
public class Sample 
    public static void Main() 
        ///Contains default options
        ManagementObject o = 
            new ManagementObject("Win32_Process.Name='notepad.exe'"); 

        // Replace default options, 
        // in this case requesting retrieval of
        // amended qualifiers along with the WMI object.
        o.Options = new ObjectGetOptions(
            null, System.TimeSpan.MaxValue, true);
