EnumerationOptions.BlockSize Property


Gets or sets the block size for block operations. When enumerating through a collection, WMI will return results in groups of the specified size.

 property int BlockSize { int get(); void set(int value); };
public int BlockSize { get; set; }
member this.BlockSize : int with get, set
Public Property BlockSize As Integer

Property Value

The block size in block operations.


The following example initializes an EnumerationOptions variable with an EnumerationOptions constructor and then gets all the instances of a WMI class and its subclasses.

using System;
using System.Management;
public class RemoteConnect
    public static void Main()
        EnumerationOptions opt = new EnumerationOptions();
        opt.BlockSize = 2;
        // Will enumerate instances of the given class
        // and any subclasses.
        opt.EnumerateDeep = true;
        ManagementClass c = new ManagementClass("CIM_Service");
        foreach (ManagementObject o in c.GetInstances(opt))
Imports System.Management
Public Class RemoteConnect

    Public Overloads Shared Function Main( _
    ByVal args() As String) As Integer

        Dim opt As New EnumerationOptions
        opt.BlockSize = 2
        ' Will enumerate instances of the given class
        ' and any subclasses.
        opt.EnumerateDeep = True
        Dim mngmtClass As New ManagementClass("CIM_Service")
        Dim o As ManagementObject
        For Each o In mngmtClass.GetInstances(opt)
        Next o

        Return 0
    End Function
End Class


Property Value

The default value is 1.
