<permission> (C# programming guide)


<permission cref="member">description</permission>


  • cref = " member"

    A reference to a member or field that is available to be called from the current compilation environment. The compiler checks that the given code element exists and translates member to the canonical element name in the output XML. member must appear within double quotation marks (" ").

    For information on how to create a cref reference to a generic type, see cref attribute.

  • description

    A description of the access to the member.


The <permission> tag lets you document the access of a member. The PermissionSet class lets you specify access to a member.

Compile with -doc to process documentation comments to a file.


// compile with: -doc:DocFileName.xml

class TestClass
    /// <permission cref="System.Security.PermissionSet">Everyone can access this method.</permission>
    public static void Test()

    static void Main()
