Definition

Sets new access for the specified registry variable names to the existing state of the permission.

public:
 void SetPathList(System::Security::Permissions::RegistryPermissionAccess access, System::String ^ pathList);
public void SetPathList (System.Security.Permissions.RegistryPermissionAccess access, string pathList);
member this.SetPathList : System.Security.Permissions.RegistryPermissionAccess * string -> unit
Public Sub SetPathList (access As RegistryPermissionAccess, pathList As String)

Parameters

pathList
String String String String

A list of registry variables (semicolon-separated).

Exceptions

The access parameter is not a valid value of RegistryPermissionAccess.

-or-

The pathList parameter is not a valid string.

Examples

The following code example shows the use of the SetPathList method.

// AddPathList adds access for the specified registry variables to the existing state of the permission.
// SetPathList sets new access for the specified registry variable names to the existing state of the permission.
// GetPathList gets paths for all registry variables with the specified RegistryPermissionAccess.
