Examples

The following example shows how to use Owner property to assign a variable of this type.

WriteStatus("   Reading '" + xrmlFilename + "' permissions.");
try
{
    StreamReader sr = File.OpenText(xrmlFile);
    xrmlString = sr.ReadToEnd();
}
catch (Exception ex)
{
    MessageBox.Show("ERROR: '"+xrmlFilename+"' open failed.\n"+
        "Exception: " + ex.Message, "XrML File Error",
        MessageBoxButton.OK, MessageBoxImage.Error);
    return false;
}

WriteStatus("   Building UnsignedPublishLicense");
WriteStatus("       from '" + xrmlFilename + "'.");
UnsignedPublishLicense unsignedLicense =
    new UnsignedPublishLicense(xrmlString);
ContentUser author = unsignedLicense.Owner;
WriteStatus("   Reading '" & xrmlFilename & "' permissions.")
Try
    Dim sr As StreamReader = File.OpenText(xrmlFile)
    xrmlString = sr.ReadToEnd()
Catch ex As Exception
    MessageBox.Show("ERROR: '" & xrmlFilename &"' open failed." & vbLf & "Exception: " & ex.Message, "XrML File Error", MessageBoxButton.OK, MessageBoxImage.Error)
    Return False
End Try

WriteStatus("   Building UnsignedPublishLicense")
WriteStatus("       from '" & xrmlFilename & "'.")
Dim unsignedLicense As New UnsignedPublishLicense(xrmlString)
Dim author As ContentUser = unsignedLicense.Owner
