ReflectionPermission.IsSubsetOf(IPermission) ReflectionPermission.IsSubsetOf(IPermission) ReflectionPermission.IsSubsetOf(IPermission) ReflectionPermission.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 that is to be tested for the subset relationship. This permission must be of the same type as the current permission.

Returns

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

Exceptions

The target parameter is not null and is not of the same type as the current permission.

Examples

The following code example shows the behavior of the IsSubsetOf method. This example is part of a larger example provided for the ReflectionPermission 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.

private static void IsSubsetOfDemo()
{
    ReflectionPermission memberAccessPerm = new ReflectionPermission(ReflectionPermissionFlag.MemberAccess);
    ReflectionPermission restrictedMemberAccessPerm = new ReflectionPermission(ReflectionPermissionFlag.RestrictedMemberAccess);

    if (restrictedMemberAccessPerm.IsSubsetOf(memberAccessPerm))
    {
        Console.WriteLine(restrictedMemberAccessPerm.Flags + " is a subset of " +
            memberAccessPerm.Flags);
    }
    else
    {
        Console.WriteLine(restrictedMemberAccessPerm.Flags + " is not a subset of " +
            memberAccessPerm.Flags);
    }
}
Private Shared Sub IsSubsetOfDemo()

    Dim memberAccessPerm As New ReflectionPermission(ReflectionPermissionFlag.MemberAccess)
    Dim restrictedMemberAccessPerm As New ReflectionPermission(ReflectionPermissionFlag.RestrictedMemberAccess)
    If restrictedMemberAccessPerm.IsSubsetOf(memberAccessPerm) Then
        Console.WriteLine(restrictedMemberAccessPerm.Flags + " is a subset of " + memberAccessPerm.Flags)
    Else
        Console.WriteLine(restrictedMemberAccessPerm.Flags.ToString() + _
        " is not a subset of " + memberAccessPerm.Flags.ToString())
    End If

End Sub 'IsSubsetOfDemo

Remarks

The current permission is a subset of the specified permission if the current permission specifies a set of operations that is wholly contained by the specified permission. For example, a permission that represents access to C:\example.txt is a subset of a permission that represents access to C:\. If this method returns true, the current permission represents no more access to the protected resource than does the specified permission.
