CIM_Dependency class

The CIM_Dependency class represents an association that establishes dependency relationships between objects.

Important

The DMTF (Distributed Management Task Force) CIM (Common Information Model) classes are the parent classes upon which WMI classes are built. WMI currently supports only the CIM 2.x version schemas.

The following syntax is simplified from Managed Object Format (MOF) code and includes all inherited properties. Properties are listed in alphabetic order, not MOF order.

Syntax

[Association, Abstract, UUID("{8502C53A-5FBB-11D2-AAC1-006008C78BC7}"), AMENDMENT]
class CIM_Dependency
{
  CIM_ManagedSystemElement REF Antecedent;
  CIM_ManagedSystemElement REF Dependent;
};

Members

The CIM_Dependency class has these types of members:

Properties

Access type: Read-only

Reference to the object that is dependent on the Antecedent property.

Remarks

WMI does not implement this class. For more information about classes derived from CIM_Dependency, see Win32 Classes.

This documentation is derived from the CIM class descriptions published by the DMTF. Microsoft may have made changes to correct minor errors, conform to Microsoft SDK documentation standards, or provide more information.
