Win32_VideoConfiguration class

The Win32_VideoConfiguration class is not active. It will not return any instances as there is no provider backing it.

The Win32_VideoConfiguration class represents a configuration of a video subsystem. This class has been deprecated in favor of the properties contained in the Win32_VideoController, Win32_DesktopMonitor, and CIM_VideoControllerResolution classes

The following syntax is simplified from Managed Object Format (MOF) code and includes all of the inherited properties.

AdapterDACType

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: DEPRECATED, MappingStrings ("Win32Registry|System\\CurrentControlSet\\Services\\Class\\Info|DACType")

Indicates the name of the digital-to-analog chip (DAC) used in the adapter.

This property has been deprecated in favor of a corresponding property(s) contained in the Win32_VideoController, Win32_DesktopMonitor and//or CIM_VideoControllerResolution.

AdapterDescription

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: DEPRECATED, MappingStrings ("WMI")

Contains a description or descriptive name of the video adapter.

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: DEPRECATED, MappingStrings ("Win32Registry|System\\CurrentControlSet\\Services\\Class\\Info|VideoMemory"), Units ("bytes")

Indicates the memory size of the video adapter.

Example: 16777216

This property has been deprecated in favor of a corresponding property(s) contained in the Win32_VideoController, Win32_DesktopMonitor and//or CIM_VideoControllerResolution.

AdapterType

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: DEPRECATED, MappingStrings ("Win32Registry|HARDWARE\\Description\\System\\DisplayController\\0\\Identifier")

Indicates the type of video adapter.

Character Set: Alphanumeric

This property has been deprecated in favor of a corresponding property(s) contained in the Win32_VideoController, Win32_DesktopMonitor and//or CIM_VideoControllerResolution.

BitsPerPixel

Data type: uint32

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: DEPRECATED, MappingStrings ("Win32API|Device Context Functions|GetDeviceCaps|BITSPIXEL")

Indicates the actual number of bits per pixel representing the display. This may be scaled to the current video setting (represented by the ActualColorResolution property) of the user.

Example: 8

This property has been deprecated in favor of a corresponding property(s) contained in the Win32_VideoController, Win32_DesktopMonitor and//or CIM_VideoControllerResolution.

Caption

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: MaxLen (64)

Short textual description of the current object.

This property is inherited from CIM_Setting.

ColorPlanes

Data type: uint32

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: DEPRECATED, MappingStrings ("Win32API|Device Context Functions|GetDeviceCaps|PLANES")

Indicates the current number of color planes used in the video display. A color plane is another way to represent pixel colors; instead of assigning a single RGB value to each a pixel, color planes separate the graphic into each of the primary color components (red green blue), and store them in their own planes. This allows for greater color depths on 8 and 16 bit video systems. Present graphics systems have the bitwidth large enough to store color depth information, making only one color plane necessary.
