ManagementOperationObserver Class

Manages asynchronous operations and handles management information and events received asynchronously.

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

Public Class ManagementOperationObserver
Dim instance As ManagementOperationObserver

The following example demonstrates how to perform an asynchronous instance enumeration. The example uses the ManagementOperationObserver class to handle management information and events asynchronously.

' This example demonstrates how 
' to perform an asynchronous instance enumeration. 

Public Class EnumerateInstancesAsync

    Public Sub New()

        Me.isCompleted = False 

        ' Enumerate asynchronously using Object Searcher 
        ' ===============================================

        Dim searcher As ManagementObjectSearcher
        searcher = New ManagementObjectSearcher( _
            New SelectQuery("Win32_Service"))

        ' Create a results watcher object,  
        ' and handler for results and completion 
        Dim results As ManagementOperationObserver
        results = New ManagementOperationObserver

        ' Attach handler to events for 
        ' results and completion

            AddressOf Me.NewObject
        AddHandler results.Completed, _
            AddressOf Me.Done

        ' Call the asynchronous overload of 
        ' Get() to start the enumeration

        ' Do something else while results  
        ' arrive(asynchronously)
        Do While (Me.Completed.Equals(False))
