ManagementObject Class

Represents a WMI instance.

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

[SerializableAttribute]
public class ManagementObject : ManagementBaseObject, 
	ICloneable

The ManagementObject type exposes the following members.

  NameDescription
Public methodManagementObject()Initializes a new instance of the ManagementObject class. This is the default constructor.
Public methodManagementObject(ManagementPath)Initializes a new instance of the ManagementObject class for the specified WMI object path. The path is provided as a ManagementPath.
Public methodManagementObject(String)Initializes a new instance of the ManagementObject class for the specified WMI object path. The path is provided as a string.
Public methodManagementObject(ManagementPath, ObjectGetOptions)Initializes a new instance of the ManagementObject class bound to the specified WMI path, including the specified additional options.
Protected methodManagementObject(SerializationInfo, StreamingContext)Initializes a new instance of the ManagementObject class that is serializable.
Public methodManagementObject(String, ObjectGetOptions)Initializes a new instance of the ManagementObject class bound to the specified WMI path, including the specified additional options. In this variant, the path can be specified as a string.
Public methodManagementObject(ManagementScope, ManagementPath, ObjectGetOptions)Initializes a new instance of the ManagementObject class bound to the specified WMI path that includes the specified options.
Public methodManagementObject(String, String, ObjectGetOptions)Initializes a new instance of the ManagementObject class bound to the specified WMI path, and includes the specified options. The scope and the path are specified as strings.

  NameDescription
Protected propertyCanRaiseEventsGets a value indicating whether the component can raise an event. (Inherited from Component.)
Public propertyClassPathGets or sets the path to the object's class. (Overrides ManagementBaseObject.ClassPath.)
Public propertyContainerGets the IContainer that contains the Component. (Inherited from Component.)
Protected propertyDesignModeGets a value that indicates whether the Component is currently in design mode. (Inherited from Component.)
Protected propertyEventsGets the list of event handlers that are attached to this Component. (Inherited from Component.)
Public propertyItemGets access to property values through [] notation. This property is the indexer for the ManagementBaseObject class. You can use the default indexed properties defined by a type, but you cannot explicitly define your own. However, specifying the expando attribute on a class automatically provides a default indexed property whose type is Object and whose index type is String. (Inherited from ManagementBaseObject.)
Public propertyOptionsGets or sets additional information to use when retrieving the object.
Public propertyPathGets or sets the object's WMI path.
Public propertyPropertiesGets a collection of PropertyData objects describing the properties of the management object. (Inherited from ManagementBaseObject.)
Public propertyQualifiersGets the collection of QualifierData objects defined on the management object. Each element in the collection holds information such as the qualifier name, value, and flavor. (Inherited from ManagementBaseObject.)
Public propertyScopeGets or sets the scope in which this object resides.
Public propertySiteGets or sets the ISite of the Component. (Inherited from Component.)
Public propertySystemPropertiesGets the collection of WMI system properties of the management object (for example, the class name, server, and namespace). WMI system property names begin with "__". (Inherited from ManagementBaseObject.)

Public methodEqualsCompares two management objects. (Inherited from ManagementBaseObject.)
Protected methodFinalizeReleases unmanaged resources and performs other cleanup operations before the Component is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Component.)
Public methodGet()Binds WMI class information to the management object.
Public methodGet(ManagementOperationObserver)Binds to the management object asynchronously.
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type, suitable for use in hashing algorithms and data structures like a hash table. (Inherited from ManagementBaseObject.)
