StrongNameIdentityPermission.Union(IPermission) Method

Definition

Creates a permission that is the union of the current permission and the specified permission.

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

Parameters

target
IPermission

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

Returns

A new permission that represents the union of the current permission and the specified permission.

Exceptions

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

-or-

The two permissions are not equal and one is a subset of the other.

Examples

The following code example shows the results of the use of the Union 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.

Remarks

The result of a call to Union is a permission that represents all the operations represented by both the current permission and the specified permission. Any demand that passes either permission passes their union.

The union of a permission and null is the permission that is not null. The union of a permission and a subset of that permission is the permission that contains the other. Any other combination results in an ArgumentException exception being thrown.
