OSFeature.Feature Property

Definition

Gets a static instance of the OSFeature class to use for feature queries. This property is read-only.

public:
 static property System::Windows::Forms::OSFeature ^ Feature { System::Windows::Forms::OSFeature ^ get(); };
public static System.Windows.Forms.OSFeature Feature { get; }
member this.Feature : System.Windows.Forms.OSFeature
Public Shared ReadOnly Property Feature As OSFeature

Property Value

An instance of the OSFeature class.

Examples

The following example queries OSFeature for the LayeredWindows feature. The version is checked to see if it is null, to determine whether the feature is present. The result is displayed in a text box. This code assumes textBox1 has been created and placed on a form.

private:
   void LayeredWindows()
   {
      // Gets the version of the layered windows feature.
      Version^ myVersion = OSFeature::Feature->GetVersionPresent(
         OSFeature::LayeredWindows );
      
      // Prints whether the feature is available.
      if ( myVersion != nullptr )
      {
         textBox1->Text = "Layered windows feature is installed.\n";
      }
      else
      {
         textBox1->Text = "Layered windows feature is not installed.\n";
      }
   }
private void LayeredWindows() {
   // Gets the version of the layered windows feature.
   Version myVersion =
       OSFeature.Feature.GetVersionPresent(OSFeature.LayeredWindows);

   // Prints whether the feature is available.
   if (myVersion != null)
      textBox1.Text = "Layered windows feature is installed.\n";
   else
      textBox1.Text = "Layered windows feature is not installed.\n";
}

Private Sub LayeredWindows()
    ' Gets the version of the layered windows feature.
    Dim myVersion As Version = _
       OSFeature.Feature.GetVersionPresent(OSFeature.LayeredWindows)
       
    ' Prints whether the feature is available.
    If (myVersion IsNot Nothing) Then
        textBox1.Text = "Layered windows feature is installed." & _
           ControlChars.CrLf
    Else
        textBox1.Text = "Layered windows feature is not installed." & _
           ControlChars.CrLf
    End If
End Sub

Remarks

Use this static property to query for operating system features. You cannot create an instance of this class.

To determine the version of a feature, call the GetVersionPresent method. To determine if a feature or a specific version is present, call the IsPresent method and specify the feature to look for with the feature identifiers provided in this class.
