ConfigurationPermission ConfigurationPermission ConfigurationPermission ConfigurationPermission Class


Provides a permission structure that allows methods or classes to access configuration files.

public ref class ConfigurationPermission sealed : System::Security::CodeAccessPermission, System::Security::Permissions::IUnrestrictedPermission
public sealed class ConfigurationPermission : System.Security.CodeAccessPermission, System.Security.Permissions.IUnrestrictedPermission
type ConfigurationPermission = class
    inherit CodeAccessPermission
    interface IUnrestrictedPermission
Public NotInheritable Class ConfigurationPermission
Inherits CodeAccessPermission
Implements IUnrestrictedPermission


The ConfigurationPermission class provides a permission structure that allows methods or classes to access configuration files. Also, ConfigurationPermission provides ways to resolve multiple permissions values through such methods as Union and Intersect.


ConfigurationPermission(PermissionState) ConfigurationPermission(PermissionState) ConfigurationPermission(PermissionState) ConfigurationPermission(PermissionState)

Initializes a new instance of the ConfigurationPermission class.


Assert() Assert() Assert() Assert()

Declares that the calling code can access the resource protected by a permission demand through the code that calls this method, even if callers higher in the stack have not been granted permission to access the resource. Using Assert() can create security issues.

(Inherited from CodeAccessPermission)
Copy() Copy() Copy() Copy()

Returns a new ConfigurationPermission object with the same permission level.

Demand() Demand() Demand() Demand()

Forces a SecurityException at run time if all callers higher in the call stack have not been granted the permission specified by the current instance.

(Inherited from CodeAccessPermission)
Deny() Deny() Deny() Deny()

Prevents callers higher in the call stack from using the code that calls this method to access the resource specified by the current instance.

(Inherited from CodeAccessPermission)
Equals(Object) Equals(Object) Equals(Object) Equals(Object)

Determines whether the specified CodeAccessPermission object is equal to the current CodeAccessPermission.

(Inherited from CodeAccessPermission)
FromXml(SecurityElement) FromXml(SecurityElement) FromXml(SecurityElement) FromXml(SecurityElement)

Reads the value of the permission state from XML.

GetHashCode() GetHashCode() GetHashCode() GetHashCode()

Gets a hash code for the CodeAccessPermission object that is suitable for use in hashing algorithms and data structures such as a hash table.

(Inherited from CodeAccessPermission)
GetType() GetType() GetType() GetType()

Gets the Type of the current instance.

(Inherited from Object)
Intersect(IPermission) Intersect(IPermission) Intersect(IPermission) Intersect(IPermission)

Returns the logical intersection between the ConfigurationPermission object and a given object that implements the IPermission interface.

IsSubsetOf(IPermission) IsSubsetOf(IPermission) IsSubsetOf(IPermission) IsSubsetOf(IPermission)

Compares the ConfigurationPermission object with an object implementing the IPermission interface.

IsUnrestricted() IsUnrestricted() IsUnrestricted() IsUnrestricted()

Indicates whether the permission state for the ConfigurationPermission object is the Unrestricted value of the PermissionState enumeration.

MemberwiseClone() MemberwiseClone() MemberwiseClone() MemberwiseClone()

Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.

(Inherited from Object)
PermitOnly() PermitOnly() PermitOnly() PermitOnly()

Prevents callers higher in the call stack from using the code that calls this method to access all resources except for the resource specified by the current instance.

(Inherited from CodeAccessPermission)
ToString() ToString() ToString() ToString()

Creates and returns a string representation of the current permission object.

(Inherited from CodeAccessPermission)
ToXml() ToXml() ToXml() ToXml()

Returns a SecurityElement object with attribute values based on the current ConfigurationPermission object.

Union(IPermission) Union(IPermission) Union(IPermission) Union(IPermission)

Returns the logical union of the ConfigurationPermission object and an object that implements the IPermission interface.
