Public Overrides Function Copy () As IPermission

Examples

The following code example shows the behavior of the Copy method. This example is part of a larger example provided for the StrongNameIdentityPermission class. The best use for this example is to build and execute the entire example, and view its output.

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.

//Copy creates and returns an identical copy of the current permission.
bool CopyDemo()
{
    bool returnValue = true;
    StrongNameIdentityPermission^ snIdPerm1;
    StrongNameIdentityPermission^ snIdPerm2;
    snIdPerm1 = gcnew StrongNameIdentityPermission(blob, "MyCompany.MyDepartment.*", gcnew Version("1.0.0.0"));
    snIdPerm2 = gcnew StrongNameIdentityPermission(PermissionState::None);

    snIdPerm2 = dynamic_cast<StrongNameIdentityPermission^>(snIdPerm1->Copy());
    Console::WriteLine("Result of copy = " + snIdPerm2->ToString() + "\n");

    return returnValue;
}


//Copy creates and returns an identical copy of the current permission.
private bool CopyDemo()
{
    bool returnValue = true;

    StrongNameIdentityPermission snIdPerm1, snIdPerm2;

    snIdPerm1 = new StrongNameIdentityPermission(blob, "MyCompany.MyDepartment.*", new Version("1.0.0.0"));
    snIdPerm2 = new StrongNameIdentityPermission(PermissionState.None);

    snIdPerm2 = (StrongNameIdentityPermission)snIdPerm1.Copy();
    Console.WriteLine("Result of copy = " + snIdPerm2.ToString() + "\n");

    return returnValue;
}
'Copy creates and returns an identical copy of the current permission.
Private Function CopyDemo() As Boolean 
    Dim returnValue As Boolean = True
    
    Dim snIdPerm1, snIdPerm2 As StrongNameIdentityPermission
    
    snIdPerm1 = New StrongNameIdentityPermission(blob, "MyCompany.MyDepartment.*", New Version("1.0.0.0"))
    snIdPerm2 = New StrongNameIdentityPermission(PermissionState.None)
    snIdPerm2 = CType(snIdPerm1.Copy(), StrongNameIdentityPermission)
    Console.WriteLine("Result of copy = " + snIdPerm2.ToString() + vbLf)
    
    Return returnValue

End Function 'CopyDemo

Remarks

A copy of a permission represents the same access to resources as the original permission.
