MutexSecurity.SetAccessRule(MutexAccessRule) MutexSecurity.SetAccessRule(MutexAccessRule) MutexSecurity.SetAccessRule(MutexAccessRule) MutexSecurity.SetAccessRule(MutexAccessRule) Method

Definition

Removes all access control rules with the same user and AccessControlType (allow or deny) as the specified rule, and then adds the specified rule.

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

Parameters

rule
MutexAccessRule MutexAccessRule MutexAccessRule MutexAccessRule

The MutexAccessRule to add. The user and AccessControlType of this rule determine the rules to remove before this rule is added.

Exceptions

Examples

The following code example shows how the SetAccessRule method removes all rules that match both the user and the AccessControlType of rule, replacing them with rule.

The example creates a MutexSecurity 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 SetAccessRule method to replace the existing Allow rule with the new rule. The rule that denies access is not affected.

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.

'This code example produces output similar to following:

'Current access rules:

'        Type: Allow
'      Rights: FullControl

Remarks

If the specified rule has Allow, the effect of this method is to remove all Allow rules for the specified user, replacing them with the specified rule. If the specified rule has Deny, all Deny rules for the specified user are replaced with the specified rule.

If there are no rules whose user and AccessControlType match the specified rule, rule is added.
