ManagementPath Constructors

Definition

Initializes a new instance of the ManagementPath class.

Overloads

ManagementPath()

Initializes a new instance of the ManagementPath class that is empty. This is the parameterless constructor.

ManagementPath(String)

Initializes a new instance of the ManagementPath class for the given path.

ManagementPath()

Initializes a new instance of the ManagementPath class that is empty. This is the parameterless constructor.

public:
 ManagementPath();
public ManagementPath ();
Public Sub New ()

Remarks

.NET Framework Security

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.

Applies to

ManagementPath(String)

Initializes a new instance of the ManagementPath class for the given path.

public:
 ManagementPath(System::String ^ path);
public ManagementPath (string path);
new System.Management.ManagementPath : string -> System.Management.ManagementPath
Public Sub New (path As String)

Parameters

path
String

The object path.

Examples

The following example demonstrates how the ManagementPath class parses a path to a WMI object. The path that is parsed in the example is a path to an instance of a class.

using System;
using System.Management;

public class Sample
{
    public static void Main()
    {

        // Get the WMI class path
        ManagementPath p =
            new ManagementPath(
            "\\\\ComputerName\\root" +
            "\\cimv2:Win32_LogicalDisk.DeviceID=\"C:\"");

        Console.WriteLine("IsClass: " +
            p.IsClass);
        // Should be False (because it is an instance)

        Console.WriteLine("IsInstance: " +
            p.IsInstance);
        // Should be True

        Console.WriteLine("ClassName: " +
            p.ClassName);
        // Should be "Win32_LogicalDisk"

        Console.WriteLine("NamespacePath: " +
            p.NamespacePath);
        // Should be "ComputerName\cimv2"

        Console.WriteLine("Server: " +
            p.Server);
        // Should be "ComputerName"

        Console.WriteLine("Path: " +
            p.Path);
        // Should be "ComputerName\root\cimv2:
        // Win32_LogicalDisk.DeviceId="C:""

        Console.WriteLine("RelativePath: " +
            p.RelativePath);
        // Should be "Win32_LogicalDisk.DeviceID="C:""
    }
}
Imports System.Management
