SWbemMethod object

You can use the properties of the SWbemMethod object to inspect a single method definition of a WMI object. This object cannot be created by the VBScript CreateObject call.

This object can be used to inspect the definitions of methods. To invoke the methods, you should use either direct access (see Manipulating Class and Instance Information) on an SWbemObject (which is the recommended mechanism) object, or the SWbemServices.ExecMethod call.

Note

In this version of the API, write access to method information is not supported. If you want to define methods or modify existing method definitions, you can define the method changes in a MOF file and submit the changes using the MOF Compiler. Alternatively, use the COM API for WMI.
