WMI Query Trace Panel

The WMI Query Trace panel displays the WMI Queries used internally by WMIX to query the information you request while navigating through the interface. For example, you can see the WMI Query used to display the instances of a class object when you double click on it, or, the query used to display the associations of a class instance. This way, you can learn how WMIX queries the information you requested. You can also use this panel to copy a WMI Query used by WMIX and paste it into your own scripts.

The format of the WMI Query is:

Query_Namespace>
Query String

Note: This format can be used in the WMIX Query WMI view.
