Examples

The following example initializes a new instance of the ManagementObject class and then change the default options for the ManagementObject.

using System;
using System.Management;
public class Sample 
{
    public static void Main() 
    {
        ///Contains default options
        ManagementObject o = 
            new ManagementObject("Win32_Process.Name='notepad.exe'"); 

        // Replace default options, 
        // in this case requesting retrieval of
        // amended qualifiers along with the WMI object.
        o.Options = new ObjectGetOptions(
            null, System.TimeSpan.MaxValue, true);
    }
}
Imports System.Management
Public Class Sample

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

        'Contains default options
        Dim o As New ManagementObject( _
            "Win32_Process.Name=""notepad.exe""")

        ' Replace default options, 
        ' in this case requesting retrieval of
        ' amended qualifiers along with the WMI object.
        o.Options = New ObjectGetOptions( _
            Nothing, System.TimeSpan.MaxValue, True)

        Return 0
    End Function
End Class

Remarks

When the property is changed after the management object has been bound to a WMI object, the management object is disconnected from the original WMI object and later rebound using the new options.
