Win32_DisplayControllerConfiguration

The Win32_DisplayControllerConfiguration class represents the video adapter configuration information of a Win32 system. This class has been deprecated in favor of Win32_VideoController, Win32_DesktopMonitor, and CIM_VideoControllerResolution classes

Quick Start

Properties

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

BitsPerPixel

Data type UInt32

The BitsPerPixel property indicates either the number of bits used to represent the color in this configuration, or the bits in each 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.

ColorPlanes

Data type UInt32

The ColorPlanes property indicates the current number ofcolor planes used in the display configuration. A color plane is another way to represent pixel colors. Instead of assigning a single RGB value to each pixel, color planes separate the graphic into each of the primary color components (red, green, blue), and store them in their own planes. This allows for greater color depths on 8- and 16-bit video systems. Present graphics systems have the bitwidth large enough to store color depth information; meaningonly one color plane is needed.

Example: 1

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

Description

Data type String

A textual description of the CIM_Setting object.

DeviceEntriesInAColorTable

Data type UInt32

The DeviceEntriesInAColorTable property indicates the number of color indexes in a color table of a display device. If the device has a color depth of no more than 8 bits per pixel. For devices with greater color depths, -1 is returned.

Example: 256

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

DeviceSpecificPens

Data type UInt32

The DeviceSpecificPens property indicates the current number of device-specific pens. A value of 0xFFFFFFFF means the device does not support pens. Pens are logical properties that can be assigned by the display controller to display devices, and are used to draw lines, borders of polygons, and text.

Example: 3

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

EnableLowPriority

Data type Boolean

HorizontalResolution

Data type UInt32

The HorizontalResolution property indicates the current number of pixels in the horizontal direction (X axis) of the display.

Example: 1024

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

Name

Data type String

The Name property contains the name of the adapter used in this configuration.

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

RefreshRate

Data type SInt32

The RefreshRate property indicates the refresh rate of the video adapter. A value of 0 or 1 indicates a default rate is being used. A value of -1 indicates that an optimal rate is being used.

Example: 72

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

ReservedSystemPaletteEntries

Data type UInt32

The ReservedSystemPaletteEntries property indicates the current number of color index entries reserved for system use. This value is only valid for display settings that use an indexed palette. Indexed palettes are not used for color depths greater than 8 bits per pixel. If the color depth is more than 8 bits per pixel, this value is set to NULL.

Example: 20

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.

SystemPaletteEntries

Data type UInt32

The SystemPaletteEntries property indicates the current number of color index entries reserved for system use. This value is only valid for display settings that use an indexed palette . Indexed palettes are not used for color depths greater than 8 bits per pixel. If the color depth is more than 8 bits per pixel, this value is set to NULL.

Example: 20

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

VerticalResolution

Data type UInt32

The VerticalResolution property indicates the current number of pixels in the vertical direction (Y axis) of the display.

Example: 768

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

VideoMode

Data type String

The VideoMode property contains a user readable description of the current screen resolution and color setting of the display.

Example: 1024 X 768 with 256 colors.

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