Public Class MethodDataCollection _
	Implements ICollection, IEnumerable

The MethodDataCollection type exposes the following members.

  NameDescription

  NameDescription
Public methodAdd(String)Adds a MethodData to the MethodDataCollection. This overload will add a new method with no parameters to the collection.
Public methodAdd(String, ManagementBaseObject, ManagementBaseObject)Adds a MethodData to the MethodDataCollection. This overload will add a new method with the specified parameter objects to the collection.
Public methodCopyTo(Array, Int32)Copies the MethodDataCollection into an array.
Public methodCopyTo(MethodData(), Int32)Copies the MethodDataCollection to a specialized MethodData array.
Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetEnumeratorReturns an enumerator for the MethodDataCollection.
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodRemoveRemoves a MethodData from the MethodDataCollection.
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

  NameDescription
Public Extension MethodAsParallelEnables parallelization of a query. (Defined by ParallelEnumerable.)
Public Extension MethodAsQueryableConverts an IEnumerable to an IQueryable. (Defined by Queryable.)
Public Extension MethodCast(Of TResult)Casts the elements of an IEnumerable to the specified type. (Defined by Enumerable.)
