DataProtectionPermission.IsSubsetOf(IPermission) DataProtectionPermission.IsSubsetOf(IPermission) DataProtectionPermission.IsSubsetOf(IPermission) DataProtectionPermission.IsSubsetOf(IPermission) Method

Definition

Determines whether the current permission is a subset of the specified permission.

public:
 override bool IsSubsetOf(System::Security::IPermission ^ target);
public override bool IsSubsetOf (System.Security.IPermission target);
override this.IsSubsetOf : System.Security.IPermission -> bool
Public Overrides Function IsSubsetOf (target As IPermission) As Boolean

Parameters

target
IPermission IPermission IPermission IPermission

A permission to test for the subset relationship. This permission must be the same type as the current permission.

Returns

true if the current permission is a subset of the specified permission; otherwise, false.

Exceptions

target is not null and does not specify a permission of the same type as the current permission.

Examples

The following code example shows the use of the IsSubsetOf method. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the DataProtectionPermission class.

Note

The code example is intended to show the behavior of the method, not to demonstrate its use. In general, the methods of permission classes are used by the security infrastructure; they are not typically used in applications.

bool rc = sp2->IsSubsetOf( sp3 );
Console::WriteLine( "Is the permission with all flags set (AllFlags) "
"a subset of \n \tthe permission with an Unrestricted "
"permission state? {0}", (rc ? (String^)"Yes" : "No") );
rc = sp1->IsSubsetOf( sp2 );
Console::WriteLine( "Is the permission with ProtectData access a "
"subset of the permission with \n"
"\tAllFlags set? {0}", (rc ? (String^)"Yes" : "No") );

bool rc = sp2.IsSubsetOf(sp3);
Console.WriteLine("Is the permission with all flags set (AllFlags) " +
    "a subset of \n \tthe permission with an Unrestricted " +
    "permission state? " + (rc ? "Yes" : "No"));
rc = sp1.IsSubsetOf(sp2);
Console.WriteLine("Is the permission with ProtectData access a " +
    "subset of the permission with \n" + "\tAllFlags set? " +
    (rc ? "Yes" : "No"));
Dim rc As Boolean = sp2.IsSubsetOf(sp3)
Console.WriteLine("Is the permission with all flags set (AllFlags) " + "a subset of " + vbLf + " " + vbTab + "the permission with an Unrestricted " + "permission state? " + IIf(rc, "Yes", "No")) 'TODO: For performance reasons this should be changed to nested IF statements
rc = sp1.IsSubsetOf(sp2)
Console.WriteLine("Is the permission with ProtectData access a " + "subset of the permission with " + vbLf + vbTab + "AllFlags set? " + IIf(rc, "Yes", "No")) 'TODO: For performance reasons this should be changed to nested IF statements

Remarks

The current permission is a subset of the specified permission if the current permission specifies a set of operations that is wholly contained in the specified permission. For example, a permission for ProtectData access is a subset of a permission for AllFlags access.
