Examples

The following example shows how the client receives notification when an instance of Win32_Process is created because the event class is __InstanceCreationEvent. For more information, see the Windows Management Instrumentation documentation. The client receives events synchronously by calling the WaitForNextEvent method. This example can be tested by starting a process, such as Notepad, while the example code is running.

using System;
using System.Management;

// This example shows synchronous consumption of events. 
// The client is blocked while waiting for events. 

public class EventWatcherPolling 
{
    public static int Main(string[] args) 
    {
        // Create event query to be notified within 1 second of 
        // a change in a service
        string query = "SELECT * FROM" +
            " __InstanceCreationEvent WITHIN 1 " + 
            "WHERE TargetInstance isa \"Win32_Process\"";

        // Event options
        EventWatcherOptions eventOptions = new
            EventWatcherOptions();
        eventOptions.Timeout = System.TimeSpan.MaxValue;

        // Initialize an event watcher and subscribe to events 
        // that match this query
        ManagementEventWatcher watcher =
            new ManagementEventWatcher("root\\CIMV2", query,
            eventOptions);
      
        // Block until the next event occurs 
        // Note: this can be done in a loop if waiting for 
        //        more than one occurrence
        Console.WriteLine(
            "Open an application (notepad.exe) to trigger an event.");
        ManagementBaseObject e = watcher.WaitForNextEvent();

        //Display information from the event
        Console.WriteLine(
            "Process {0} has been created, path is: {1}", 
            ((ManagementBaseObject)e
            ["TargetInstance"])["Name"],
            ((ManagementBaseObject)e
            ["TargetInstance"])["ExecutablePath"]);

        //Cancel the subscription
        watcher.Stop();
        return 0;
    }

Constructors

EventWatcherOptions() EventWatcherOptions() EventWatcherOptions() EventWatcherOptions()

Initializes a new instance of the EventWatcherOptions class for event watching, using default values. This is the default constructor.

EventWatcherOptions(ManagementNamedValueCollection, TimeSpan, Int32) EventWatcherOptions(ManagementNamedValueCollection, TimeSpan, Int32) EventWatcherOptions(ManagementNamedValueCollection, TimeSpan, Int32) EventWatcherOptions(ManagementNamedValueCollection, TimeSpan, Int32)

Initializes a new instance of the EventWatcherOptions class with the given values.

Properties

BlockSize BlockSize BlockSize BlockSize

Gets or sets the block size for block operations. When waiting for events, this value specifies how many events to wait for before returning.

Context Context Context Context

Gets or sets a WMI context object. This is a name-value pairs list to be passed through to a WMI provider that supports context information for customized operation.

(Inherited from ManagementOptions)
Timeout Timeout Timeout Timeout

Gets or sets the time-out to apply to the operation. Note that for operations that return collections, this time-out applies to the enumeration through the resulting collection, not the operation itself (the ReturnImmediately property is used for the latter). This property is used to indicate that the operation should be performed semi-synchronously.
