Remarks

Use this method to create an instance of the RC2 class that you can use to encrypt and decrypt data.

See also

Create(String)

Creates an instance of a cryptographic object to perform the specified implementation of the RC2 algorithm.

public:
 static System::Security::Cryptography::RC2 ^ Create(System::String ^ AlgName);
public static System.Security.Cryptography.RC2 Create (string AlgName);
static member Create : string -> System.Security.Cryptography.RC2
Public Shared Function Create (AlgName As String) As RC2

Parameters

AlgName
String

The name of the specific implementation of RC2 to use.

Returns

RC2

An instance of a cryptographic object.

Exceptions

The algorithm described by the algName parameter was used with Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) mode enabled, but is not FIPS compatible.
