Examples

The following code example demonstrates the use of EventWaitHandleRights values when creating and using EventWaitHandleAccessRule objects. The example creates an EventWaitHandleSecurity object, adds rules that allow and deny various rights for the current user, and displays the resulting pair of rules. The example then allows new rights for the current user and displays the result, showing that the new rights are merged with the existing AccessControlType.Allow rule.

Note

This example does not attach the security object to an EventWaitHandle object; see EventWaitHandleSecurity, EventWaitHandle.GetAccessControl method, and EventWaitHandle.SetAccessControl.

Remarks

Use the EventWaitHandleRights enumeration to specify access control rights when you create EventWaitHandleAccessRule objects. To apply access rights to a named system event, first add EventWaitHandleAccessRule objects to an EventWaitHandleSecurity object, then attach the EventWaitHandleSecurity object to the named system event using the EventWaitHandle.EventWaitHandle(Boolean, EventResetMode, String, Boolean, EventWaitHandleSecurity) constructor or the EventWaitHandle.SetAccessControl method.

Note

Security on synchronization objects is not supported for Windows 98 or Windows Millennium Edition.
