Instances Panel

The Instances Panel is by default hidden from view. It is only displayed once you query the instances of a class in the Namespace & Class view or when you execute a query in the WMI Query view.

  • To show the Instances Panel, open the main command bar and select Show Panels >> Instances from the main menu.
  • To set or un-set the Instances panel in the auto-hide mode, click on the  button located on the panel bar. In the auto-hide mode, the Instances panel is minimized when not used and only appears when you place the mouse cursor over its tab.
  • To move the Instances panel to another area of the WMIX workspace, click on the panel’s bar and drag it to the desired location.

The Instances Panel contains a result set of objects. The objects in the Instances Panel may be of different types. For example, querying the available instances of the Controller (CIM_Controller) class in the Namespace & Class view would result in an Instances Panel similar to this one:
