MultiSelection MultiSelection MultiSelection MultiSelection 1

SingleSelection SingleSelection SingleSelection SingleSelection 0

A single selection. The UI allows the user to select one X.509 certificate.

Examples

The following code example demonstrates how to use the selection flag with the X509Certificate2UI.SelectFromCollection method. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the X509Store class. The larger example opens the current user's personal certificate store, allows the user to select a certificate, then writes certificate and certificate chain information to the console. The output depends on the certificate the user selects.

//Create new X509 store from local certificate store.
X509Store ^ store = gcnew X509Store( "MY",StoreLocation::CurrentUser );
store->Open( static_cast<OpenFlags>(OpenFlags::OpenExistingOnly | OpenFlags::ReadWrite) );

//Output store information.
Console::WriteLine( "Store Information" );
Console::WriteLine( "Number of certificates in the store: {0}", store->Certificates->Count );
Console::WriteLine( "Store location: {0}", store->Location );
Console::WriteLine( "Store name: {0} {1}", store->Name, Environment::NewLine );

//Put certificates from the store into a collection so user can select one.
X509Certificate2Collection ^ fcollection = dynamic_cast<X509Certificate2Collection^>(store->Certificates);
X509Certificate2Collection ^ collection = X509Certificate2UI::SelectFromCollection(fcollection, "Select an X509 Certificate","Choose a certificate to examine.",X509SelectionFlag::SingleSelection);
X509Certificate2 ^ certificate = collection[ 0 ];
X509Certificate2UI::DisplayCertificate(certificate);
//Create new X509 store from local certificate store.
X509Store store = new X509Store("MY", StoreLocation.CurrentUser);
store.Open(OpenFlags.OpenExistingOnly | OpenFlags.ReadWrite);

//Output store information.
Console.WriteLine ("Store Information");
Console.WriteLine ("Number of certificates in the store: {0}", store.Certificates.Count);
Console.WriteLine ("Store location: {0}", store.Location);
Console.WriteLine ("Store name: {0} {1}", store.Name, Environment.NewLine);

//Put certificates from the store into a collection so user can select one.
X509Certificate2Collection fcollection = (X509Certificate2Collection)store.Certificates;
X509Certificate2Collection collection = X509Certificate2UI.SelectFromCollection(fcollection, "Select an X509 Certificate", "Choose a certificate to examine.", X509SelectionFlag.SingleSelection);
X509Certificate2 certificate = collection[0];
X509Certificate2UI.DisplayCertificate(certificate);
'Create new X509 store from local certificate store.
Dim store As New X509Store("MY", StoreLocation.CurrentUser)
store.Open(OpenFlags.OpenExistingOnly Or OpenFlags.ReadWrite)

'Output store information.
Console.WriteLine("Store Information")
Console.WriteLine("Number of certificates in the store: {0}", store.Certificates.Count)
Console.WriteLine("Store location: {0}", store.Location)
Console.WriteLine("Store name: {0} {1}", store.Name, Environment.NewLine)

'Put certificates from the store into a collection so user can select one.
Dim fcollection As X509Certificate2Collection = CType(store.Certificates, X509Certificate2Collection)
Dim collection As X509Certificate2Collection = X509Certificate2UI.SelectFromCollection(fcollection, "Select an X509 Certificate", "Choose a certificate to examine.", X509SelectionFlag.SingleSelection)
Dim certificate As X509Certificate2 = collection(0)
X509Certificate2UI.DisplayCertificate(certificate)

Remarks

This flag represents either a single or multiple certificate selection using the X509Certificate2UI.SelectFromCollection method.
