MutexSecurity.RemoveAccessRuleAll(MutexAccessRule) MutexSecurity.RemoveAccessRuleAll(MutexAccessRule) MutexSecurity.RemoveAccessRuleAll(MutexAccessRule) MutexSecurity.RemoveAccessRuleAll(MutexAccessRule) Method

Definition

Searches for all access control rules with the same user and AccessControlType (allow or deny) as the specified rule and, if found, removes them.

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

Parameters

rule
MutexAccessRule MutexAccessRule MutexAccessRule MutexAccessRule

A MutexAccessRule that specifies the user and AccessControlType to search for. Any rights specified by this rule are ignored.

Exceptions

Examples

The following code example shows that the RemoveAccessRuleAll method removes all rules that match user and AccessControlType, ignoring rights.

The example creates a MutexSecurity object, adds rules that allow and deny various rights for the current user, and then merges additional rights into the Allow rule. The example then creates a new rule that allows the current user to take ownership, and uses that rule to remove the Allow rule from the MutexSecurity object.

Note

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

Remarks

The current MutexSecurity object is searched for rules that have the same user and the same AccessControlType value as rule. Any rights specified by rule are ignored when performing this search. If no matching rules are found, no action is taken.
