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


[AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets::Class | AttributeTargets::Struct)]
public ref class InstrumentationClassAttribute : Attribute


Initializes a new instance of the InstrumentationClassAttribute class that is used if this type is derived from another type that has the InstrumentationClassAttribute attribute, or if this is a top-level instrumentation class (for example, an instance or abstract class without a base class, or an event derived from __ExtrinsicEvent).

System_CAPS_pubmethodInstrumentationClassAttribute(InstrumentationType, String^)

Initializes a new instance of the InstrumentationClassAttribute class that has schema for an existing base class. The class must contain proper member definitions for the properties of the existing WMI base class.


Gets or sets the type of instrumentation provided by this class.


Gets or sets the name of the base class of this instrumentation class.


When implemented in a derived class, gets a unique identifier for this Attribute.(Inherited from Attribute.)


This API supports the product infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code. Returns a value that indicates whether this instance is equal to a specified object.(Inherited from Attribute.)


Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection.(Inherited from Object.)


Returns the hash code for this instance.(Inherited from Attribute.)


Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)


When overridden in a derived class, indicates whether the value of this instance is the default value for the derived class.(Inherited from Attribute.)


When overridden in a derived class, returns a value that indicates whether this instance equals a specified object.(Inherited from Attribute.)


Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.(Inherited from Object.)


Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethod_Attribute::GetIDsOfNames(Guid, IntPtr, UInt32, UInt32, IntPtr)

Maps a set of names to a corresponding set of dispatch identifiers.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethod_Attribute::GetTypeInfo(UInt32, UInt32, IntPtr)

Retrieves the type information for an object, which can be used to get the type information for an interface.(Inherited from Attribute.)


Retrieves the number of type information interfaces that an object provides (either 0 or 1).(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethod_Attribute::Invoke(UInt32, Guid, UInt32, Int16, IntPtr, IntPtr, IntPtr, IntPtr)

Provides access to properties and methods exposed by an object.(Inherited from Attribute.)
