OBJECT

The OBJECT data type is a WMI class object use to declare weakly typed associations and embedded objects. You do not define the specific class for a weakly typed object until you create an instance of the class. Embedded objects defined with the OBJECT data type can contain instances of any WMI class. For more information, see Embedded Objects.

The following example defines and creates instances of two classes, one of which contains an embedded object of type OBJECT:

#pragma namespace("\\\\.\\root")

instance of __Namespace
{
    Name = "WMI" ;
} ;

#pragma namespace("\\\\.\\root\\WMI")

class CompositeClass
{
    [key] string aKey;   
    object EmbObj;       // Weakly typed
};

class EmbClass

{
  [key] string aKey;
};

instance of CompositeClass
{
    aKey = "CompositeClass Key";
    EmbObj = 
        instance of EmbClass
        {
           aKey = "key for embedded object";
        };
};
