Win32_DisplayConfiguration

The Win32_DisplayConfiguration class represents configuration information for the display device on a Win32 system. This class is being deprecated in favor of the properties in Win32_VideoController, Win32_DesktopMonitor, and CIM_VideoControllerResolution

Quick Start

Properties

In this WMI class, all WMI properties are read-only. You can only read values but not change them.

BitsPerPel

Data type UInt32

The BitsPerPel property indicates the number of bits used to represent the color in this configuration (the bits per pixel).

Example: 8.

This property has been deprecated in favor of a corresponding property(s) contained in the Win32_VideoController, Win32_DesktopMonitor and//or CIM_VideoControllerResolution

Caption

Data type String

A short textual description (one-line string) of the CIM_Setting object.

Description

Data type String

A textual description of the CIM_Setting object.

DeviceName

Data type String

The DeviceName property indicates the name of the display device.

This property has been deprecated in favor of a corresponding property(s) contained in the Win32_VideoController, Win32_DesktopMonitor and//or CIM_VideoControllerResolution

DisplayFlags

Data type UInt32

The DisplayFlags property indicates whether the display device is color (versus monochrome), and non-interlaced (versus interlaced). By masking its value with the DM_GRAYSCALE and DM_INTERLACED masks respectively, DisplayFlags indicates whether the display device is color (versus monochrome), and non-interlaced (versus interlaced). The DisplayFlags property contains two bits of information about the display.

This property has been deprecated in favor of a corresponding property(s) contained in the Win32_VideoController, Win32_DesktopMonitor and//or CIM_VideoControllerResolution

DisplayFrequency

Data type UInt32

The DisplayFrequency property indicates the display’s vertical refresh rate. The refresh rate for a monitor is the number of times the screen is redrawn per second (frequency).

This property has been deprecated in favor of a corresponding property(s) contained in the Win32_VideoController, Win32_DesktopMonitor and//or CIM_VideoControllerResolution

DitherType

Data type UInt32

The DitherType property indicates the dither type of the display. This property can assume predefined values of 1 to 5, or driver-defined values from 6 to 256. Line art dithering is a special dithering method that produces well-defined borders between black, white, and gray scalings. It is not suitable for images that include continuous graduations in intensity and hue (such as scanned photographs).

This property has been deprecated in favor of a corresponding property(s) contained in the Win32_VideoController, Win32_DesktopMonitor and//or CIM_VideoControllerResolution

$DitherType_ReturnValue = 
@{
    1='No Dithering'
    2='Coarse Brush'
    3='Fine Brush'
    4='Line Art'
    5='Greyscale'
}

DriverVersion

Data type String

The DriverVersion property indicates the release version of the display driver.

This property has been deprecated in favor of a corresponding property(s) contained in the Win32_VideoController, Win32_DesktopMonitor and//or CIM_VideoControllerResolution

ICMIntent

Data type UInt32

The ICMIntent (Image Color Matching Intent) property indicates the value of one of the three possible color matching methods (intents) that should be used by default. This property is used primarily for non-ICM applications. ICM applications establish intents by using the ICM functions. This property can assume predefined values of 1 to 3, or driver-defined values from 4 to 256.

This property has been deprecated in favor of a corresponding property(s) contained in the Win32_VideoController, Win32_DesktopMonitor and//or CIM_VideoControllerResolution

$ICMIntent_ReturnValue = 
@{
    1='Saturation'
    2='Contrast'
    3='Exact Color'
}

ICMMethod

Data type UInt32

The ICMMethod (Image Color Matching Method) property indicates how ICM is handled. For a non-ICM application, this property indicates if ICM is enabled or disabled. For ICM applications, the system examines this member to determine which part of the computer system handles ICM support.

This property has been deprecated in favor of a corresponding property(s) contained in the Win32_VideoController, Win32_DesktopMonitor and//or CIM_VideoControllerResolution

$ICMMethod_ReturnValue = 
@{
    1='Disabled'
    2='Windows'
    3='Device Driver'
    4='Device'
}

LogPixels

Data type UInt32

The LogPixels property contains the number of pixels per logical inch. This property is valid only with devices that work with pixels (this excludes devices such as printers).

This property has been deprecated in favor of a corresponding property(s) contained in the Win32_VideoController, Win32_DesktopMonitor and//or CIM_VideoControllerResolution

PelsHeight

Data type UInt32

The PelsHeight property indicates the height of the displayable surface.

This property has been deprecated in favor of a corresponding property(s) contained in the Win32_VideoController, Win32_DesktopMonitor and//or CIM_VideoControllerResolution

PelsWidth

Data type UInt32

The PelsWidth property indicates the width of the displayable surface.

This property has been deprecated in favor of a corresponding property(s) contained in the Win32_VideoController, Win32_DesktopMonitor and//or CIM_VideoControllerResolution

SettingID

Data type String

The identifier by which the CIM_Setting object is known.

SpecificationVersion

Data type UInt32

The SpecificationVersion property indicates the version number of the initialization data for the Win32 display device.

This property has been deprecated in favor of a corresponding property(s) contained in the Win32_VideoController, Win32_DesktopMonitor and//or CIM_VideoControllerResolution
