ManagementPath.IsInstance Property

Definition

Gets or sets a value indicating whether this is an instance path.

public:
 property bool IsInstance { bool get(); };
public bool IsInstance { get; }
member this.IsInstance : bool
Public ReadOnly Property IsInstance As Boolean

Property Value

Boolean

Returns a Boolean value indicating whether this is an instance 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

        ' 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:""

    End Function
End Class

Remarks

Property Value

true if this is an instance path; otherwise, false.
