LicFileLicenseProvider LicFileLicenseProvider LicFileLicenseProvider LicFileLicenseProvider Class

Definition

Provides an implementation of a LicenseProvider. The provider works in a similar fashion to the Microsoft .NET Framework standard licensing model.

Examples

The following example creates a licensed control using the Validate method. It uses LicFileLicenseProvider for the license manager.

// Adds the LicenseProviderAttribute to the control.

[LicenseProvider(LicFileLicenseProvider::typeid)]
public ref class MyControl: public Control
{
   // Creates a new, null license.
private:
   License^ license;

public:
   MyControl()
   {
      
      // Adds Validate to the control's constructor.
      license = LicenseManager::Validate( MyControl::typeid, this );

      // Insert code to perform other instance creation tasks here.
   }

public:
   ~MyControl()
   {
      if ( license != nullptr )
      {
         delete license;
         license = nullptr;
      }
   }
};
using System;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Windows.Forms;


// Adds the LicenseProviderAttribute to the control.
[LicenseProvider(typeof(LicFileLicenseProvider))]
public class MyControl : Control 
{
 
   // Creates a new, null license.
   private License license = null;
 
   public MyControl () 
   {
 
      // Adds Validate to the control's constructor.
      license = LicenseManager.Validate(typeof(MyControl), this);
 
      // Insert code to perform other instance creation tasks here.
   }
 
   protected override void Dispose(bool disposing) 
   {
      if(disposing)
      {
         if (license != null) 
         {
            license.Dispose();
            license = null;
         }
      }
   }
 
}

        ' Insert code to perform other instance creation tasks here.
        
    End Sub
    
    Protected Overrides Sub Dispose(ByVal disposing As Boolean)

        If disposing Then
            If (license IsNot Nothing) Then
                license.Dispose()
                license = Nothing
            End If
        End If

    End Sub    
    
End Class

Remarks

The LicFileLicenseProvider offers GetLicense and IsKeyValid methods. The IsKeyValid method determines whether the LicenseKey retrieved by the GetLicense method is valid. When you inherit from this class, you can override the IsKeyValid method to provide your own validation logic.

This class exists to provide similar licensing functionality to COM licensing and uses text license files.
