ManagementObject.Scope Property

Gets or sets the scope in which this object resides.

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

public ManagementScope Scope { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Management.ManagementScope
The scope in which this object resides.

Changing this property after the management object has been bound to a WMI object in a particular namespace results in releasing the original WMI object. This causes the management object to be rebound to the new object specified by the new path properties and scope values.

The rebinding is performed in a "lazy" manner, that is, only when a requested value requires the management object to be bound to the WMI object. Changes can be made to more than just this property before attempting to rebind (for example, modifying the scope and path properties simultaneously).

.NET Framework Security

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 with the default namespace, and then changes the scope of the ManagementObject.

using System;
using System.Management;
public class Sample 
    public static void Main() 
        // Create the object with the default namespace 
        // (root\cimv2)
        ManagementObject o = new ManagementObject();    

        // Change the scope (=namespace) of this object 
        // to the one specified.
        o.Scope = new ManagementScope("root\\CIMV2");
