__EventDroppedEvent class

The __EventDroppedEvent system class represents the occurrence of an event that is dropped. A dropped event is an event that is not delivered to an event consumer.

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.


class __EventDroppedEvent : __SystemEvent
  __Event             Event;
  __EventConsumer REF IntendedConsumer;
  uint8               SECURITY_DESCRIPTOR[];
  uint64              TIME_CREATED;

Data type: uint64

Access type: Read-only

Unique value that indicates the time when an event is generated. This is a 64-bit value that represents the number of 100-nanosecond intervals after January 1, 1601. The information is in the Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) format. This property is inherited from __Event.

For more information about using uint64 values in scripts, see Scripting in WMI.
