ManagementObject Constructor (String)


Initializes a new instance of the ManagementObject class for the specified WMI object path. The path is provided as a string.

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

Public Sub New (
	path As String


Type: System.String

A WMI path.

If the specified path is a relative path only (a server or namespace is not specified), the default path is the local machine, and the default namespace is the DefaultPath path (by default, root\cimv2). If the user specifies a full path, the default settings are overridden.

Full trust for the immediate caller. This member cannot be used by partially trusted code. For more information, see Using Libraries from Partially Trusted Code.

The following example initializes a new instance of the ManagementObject class.

Imports System
Imports System.Management

Class Sample_ManagementClass
    Public Overloads Shared Function Main( _
        ByVal args() As String) As Integer

        Dim o As New ManagementObject( _

        ' or with a full path :

        Dim mObj As New ManagementObject( _

        Return 0
    End Function
End Class
