Remarks

The previous state of the current permission for the specified access type is overwritten. The following code sets the access for C:\temp to Read.

fileIOPerm1->SetPathList(FileIOPermissionAccess::Read, "C:\\temp");
fileIOPerm1.SetPathList(FileIOPermissionAccess.Read, "C:\\temp");
fileIOPerm1.SetPathList(FileIOPermissionAccess.Read, "C:\\temp")

This access will not be overwritten by the following code because the access types are not the same.

fileIOPerm1->SetPathList(FileIOPermissionAccess::Write, "C:\\documents");
fileIOPerm1.SetPathList(FileIOPermissionAccess.Write, "C:\\documents");
fileIOPerm1.SetPathList(FileIOPermissionAccess.Write, "C:\\documents")

SetPathList(FileIOPermissionAccess, String[]) SetPathList(FileIOPermissionAccess, String[]) SetPathList(FileIOPermissionAccess, String[]) SetPathList(FileIOPermissionAccess, String[])

Sets the specified access to the specified files and directories, replacing the current state for the specified access with the new set of paths.

public:
 void SetPathList(System::Security::Permissions::FileIOPermissionAccess access, cli::array <System::String ^> ^ pathList);
public void SetPathList (System.Security.Permissions.FileIOPermissionAccess access, string[] pathList);
member this.SetPathList : System.Security.Permissions.FileIOPermissionAccess * string[] -> unit
Public Sub SetPathList (access As FileIOPermissionAccess, pathList As String())
Parameters
pathList
String[]

An array containing the absolute paths of the files and directories.

Exceptions

The access parameter is not a valid value of FileIOPermissionAccess.

-or-

An entry in the pathList parameter is not a valid string.

Remarks

The previous state of the current permission for the specified access type is overwritten. The following code sets the access for C:\temp to Read.

This access will not be overwritten by the following code because the access types are not the same.

fileIOPerm1->SetPathList(FileIOPermissionAccess::Write, gcnew array<String^> {"C:\\pictures", "C:\\music"});
fileIOPerm1.SetPathList(FileIOPermissionAccess.Write, new string[] {"C:\\pictures", "C:\\music"});
