UIPermission.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

A permission to test for the subset relationship. This permission must be 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 UIPermission 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.

Remarks

The current permission is a subset of the specified permission if all demands that succeed for the current permission also succeed for the specified permission. That is, the specified permission contains at least the permissions contained in the subset. For IsSubsetOf to return true, both the UIPermissionWindow and UIPermissionClipboard values of the current permission must be equal to or less permissive than the values of the specified permission.
