ManagementConfigurationAttribute Class


The ManagementConfiguration attribute indicates that a property or field represents a read-write WMI property.

Note: the WMI .NET libraries are now considered in final state, and no further development, enhancements, or updates will be available for non-security related issues affecting these libraries. The MI APIs should be used for all new development.

public ref class ManagementConfigurationAttribute sealed : System::Management::Instrumentation::ManagementMemberAttribute
[System.AttributeUsage(System.AttributeTargets.Field | System.AttributeTargets.Property, AllowMultiple=false)]
public sealed class ManagementConfigurationAttribute : System.Management.Instrumentation.ManagementMemberAttribute
[<System.AttributeUsage(System.AttributeTargets.Field | System.AttributeTargets.Property, AllowMultiple=false)>]
type ManagementConfigurationAttribute = class
    inherit ManagementMemberAttribute
Public NotInheritable Class ManagementConfigurationAttribute
Inherits ManagementMemberAttribute


The following example shows how to use the ManagementConfiguration attribute to mark a property. This property is exposed to WMI.

// Use the ManagementConfiguration attribute to specify that a property  
// is a read/write property in the provider. Consumers will be  
// able to get and set this property value through WMI.  
public double ReadableWritableProperty  
    get { return this.propertyValue; }  
    set { this.propertyValue = value; }  


The property or field must be public. The class that contains the property must be marked with the ManagementEntityAttribute attribute.

Any fields or properties in the class that are not marked with this or another WMI Provider Extensions attribute will not be instrumented.



Initializes a new instance of the ManagementConfigurationAttribute class. This is the parameterless constructor.



Gets or sets the mode of the property, which specifies whether changes to it are applied as soon as possible or when a commit method is called.


Gets or sets the name of the management attribute.

(Inherited from ManagementMemberAttribute)

Gets or sets a value that defines the type of output that the property that is marked with the ManagementConfiguration attribute will return.


When implemented in a derived class, gets a unique identifier for this Attribute.

Returns a value that indicates whether this instance is equal to a specified object.

(Inherited from Attribute)

Returns the hash code for this instance.

(Inherited from Attribute)

Gets the Type of the current instance.

(Inherited from Object)
