ManagementCreateAttribute Class


The ManagementCreateAttribute is used to indicate that a method creates a new instance of a managed entity.

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 ManagementCreateAttribute sealed : System::Management::Instrumentation::ManagementNewInstanceAttribute
[System.AttributeUsage(System.AttributeTargets.Constructor | System.AttributeTargets.Method, AllowMultiple=false)]
public sealed class ManagementCreateAttribute : System.Management.Instrumentation.ManagementNewInstanceAttribute
[<System.AttributeUsage(System.AttributeTargets.Constructor | System.AttributeTargets.Method, AllowMultiple=false)>]
type ManagementCreateAttribute = class
    inherit ManagementNewInstanceAttribute
Public NotInheritable Class ManagementCreateAttribute
Inherits ManagementNewInstanceAttribute


The following example demonstrates how to use the ManagementCreate attribute.

public class ProcessInstance  
     public int Id;   

     public ProcessInstance StartProcess(string cmdLine)  
        ProcessInstance newProcess = new ProcessInstance(cmdLine);  
        return newProcess;  


The lifetime of a managed entity is not bound to the lifetime of the .NET object representing it. The provider can use the method marked with this attribute to create a new instance of the corresponding managed entity.

The method parameters should have the same name and type as the parameters of the class binding constructor.

Use of this attribute does not have any affect on registration of the WMI class in the repository. It is only used at runtime.



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



Gets or sets the name of the management attribute.

(Inherited from ManagementMemberAttribute)

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

(Inherited from 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)

When overridden in a derived class, indicates whether the value of this instance is the default value for the derived class.

(Inherited from Attribute)

When overridden in a derived class, returns a value that indicates whether this instance equals a specified object.

(Inherited from Attribute)

Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.

(Inherited from Object)

Returns a string that represents the current object.

Explicit Interface Implementations

_Attribute.GetIDsOfNames(Guid, IntPtr, UInt32, UInt32, IntPtr)

Maps a set of names to a corresponding set of dispatch identifiers.

(Inherited from Attribute)
_Attribute.GetTypeInfo(UInt32, UInt32, IntPtr)

Retrieves the type information for an object, which can be used to get the type information for an interface.

(Inherited from Attribute)

Retrieves the number of type information interfaces that an object provides (either 0 or 1).

(Inherited from Attribute)
_Attribute.Invoke(UInt32, Guid, UInt32, Int16, IntPtr, IntPtr, IntPtr, IntPtr)

Provides access to properties and methods exposed by an object.
