EventWaitHandleSecurity.ResetAccessRule(EventWaitHandleAccessRule) EventWaitHandleSecurity.ResetAccessRule(EventWaitHandleAccessRule) EventWaitHandleSecurity.ResetAccessRule(EventWaitHandleAccessRule) EventWaitHandleSecurity.ResetAccessRule(EventWaitHandleAccessRule) Method

Definition

Removes all access control rules with the same user as the specified rule, regardless of AccessControlType, and then adds the specified rule.

public:
 void ResetAccessRule(System::Security::AccessControl::EventWaitHandleAccessRule ^ rule);
public void ResetAccessRule (System.Security.AccessControl.EventWaitHandleAccessRule rule);
override this.ResetAccessRule : System.Security.AccessControl.EventWaitHandleAccessRule -> unit
Public Sub ResetAccessRule (rule As EventWaitHandleAccessRule)

Parameters

rule
EventWaitHandleAccessRule EventWaitHandleAccessRule EventWaitHandleAccessRule EventWaitHandleAccessRule

The EventWaitHandleAccessRule to add. The user specified by this rule determines the rules to remove before this rule is added.

Exceptions

Examples

The following code example shows how the ResetAccessRule method replaces all rules for the matching user with the rule specified for the match.

The example creates an EventWaitHandleSecurity object and adds rules that allow and deny various rights for the current user. The example then creates a new rule that allows the current user full control, and uses the ResetAccessRule method to replace both of the existing rules with the new rule.

Note

This example does not attach the security object to a EventWaitHandle object. Examples that attach security objects can be found in EventWaitHandle.GetAccessControl and EventWaitHandle.SetAccessControl.
