ManagementEntityAttribute Class
 

The ManagementEntity attribute indicates that a class provides management information exposed through a WMI provider.

Note: the WMI .NET libraries are now considered in final state, and no further development, enhancements, or updates will be available for non-security related issues affecting these libraries. The MI APIs should be used for all new development.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethod ManagementEntityAttribute

Initializes a new instance of the T:System.Management.ManagementEntityAttribute class. This is the default constructor.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubproperty

Gets or sets a value that specifies whether the class represents a WMI class in a provider implemented external to the current assembly.

System_CAPS_pubproperty

Gets or sets the name of the WMI class.

System_CAPS_pubproperty

Specifies whether the associated class represents a singleton WMI class.

System_CAPS_pubproperty

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

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethod Equals

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.)

System_CAPS_pubmethod GetHashCode

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

System_CAPS_pubmethod GetType

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

System_CAPS_pubmethod IsDefaultAttribute

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

System_CAPS_pubmethod Match

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

System_CAPS_pubmethod ToString

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

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubinterface System_CAPS_privmethod _AttributeGetIDsOfNames

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

System_CAPS_pubinterface System_CAPS_privmethod _AttributeGetTypeInfo

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

System_CAPS_pubinterface System_CAPS_privmethod _AttributeGetTypeInfoCount

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

System_CAPS_pubinterface System_CAPS_privmethod _AttributeInvoke

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

The class marked by this attribute must be public.

The following example shows how to use the ManagementEntity attribute to mark a class.

// Use the ManagementEntity attribute on the class to specify that this // class contains management information that is available from
// provider.

    [ManagementEntity(Name = "MortgageCalc")]
    public class MortgageCalcWMIProvider
    {
    }
