StrongNameIdentityPermission.Intersect(IPermission) Method

Definition

Creates and returns a permission that is the intersection of the current permission and the specified permission.

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

Parameters

target
IPermission

A permission to intersect with the current permission. It must be of the same type as the current permission.

Returns

A new permission that represents the intersection of the current permission and the specified permission, or null if the intersection is empty.

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 results of the use of the Intersect method, not how to use the 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.

// permission and the permission specified.

Remarks

The intersection of two permissions is a permission that describes the set of operations they both describe in common. Only a demand that passes both original permissions will pass the intersection.

The intersection of two identical strong name identity permissions is the same permission. The intersection of two different (not wildcard) expressions is an empty permission. The intersection of a wildcard expression and a matching strong name is the strong name. The intersection of two wildcard expressions that match is the longer, more specific of the two expressions.
