PropertyData.Type Property

Definition

Gets the CIM type of the property.

public:
 property System::Management::CimType Type { System::Management::CimType get(); };
public System.Management.CimType Type { get; }
member this.Type : System.Management.CimType
Public ReadOnly Property Type As CimType

Property Value

Returns a CimType enumeration value representing the CIM type of the property.

Examples

The following example lists information about the Win32_OperatingSystem class using the PropertyData class. For more information about Win32_OperatingSystem, see the Windows Management Instrumentation documentation.
