How to retrieve swbemobjectset collection from Async call?

Discussion in 'Scripting' started by SeanInSeattle, Oct 9, 2008.

  1. So, does anyone know how to get the collection / swbemobjectset from an
    asynchronous call to WMI on-completed()...? And, also does anyone know how
    to get the collection when its not fully done?

    It seems like it should be possible.... but I'm racking my brain trying to
    find an answer.

    Here is a sample:

    Set objSWbemServices = GetObject _

    Set objSink = WScript.CreateObject _

    objSWbemServices.ExecQueryAsync _
    objSink, "Select * From CIM_DataFile " & _
    "Where Path = '\\windows\\system32\\'"

    MsgBox "Waiting for objects!"

    Sub objSink_OnCompleted(iHRes, objWmiErr, objCntxt)
    WScript.Echo VbCrtLf & "Async call completed."
    End Sub

    Sub objSink_OnObjectReady(objWmiObj, objCntxt)
    WScript.Echo objWmiObj.FileName
    End Sub

    MsgBox prevents the script from ending. objSink_OnObjectReady receives
    CIM_DataFile instances asynchronously (as objWmiObj) and echoes their
    FileName property. When the call is completed objSink_OnCompleted is
    I'm not sure if it is possible to get the collection of WMI objects as a
    SWbemObjectSet object with an asynchronous call.
