PropertyDataCollection.GetEnumerator Method

Returns the enumerator for this PropertyDataCollection.

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

public PropertyDataCollection..::..PropertyDataEnumerator GetEnumerator()

Return Value

Type: System.Management.PropertyDataCollection.PropertyDataEnumerator
An IEnumerator that can be used to iterate through the collection.

You can only iterate (as in a Visual Basic .NET For Each statement or a C# For statement) through a forward-only enumerator one time. The memory containing the instances is released by WMI so that the enumerator cannot be rewound. Therefore, the Count method cannot be used since it requires rewinding the enumerator.

Forward-only enumerators are generally much faster and use less memory than conventional enumerators, but they do not allow calls to Reset.

If an enumerator is rewindable, the objects in the collection will be kept available for multiple enumerations.
