Requesting XML-Encoded Permissions 

If you need to request a custom permission set (using RequestMinimum, RequestOptional, or RequestRefuse), you can use an XML representation of the desired permission set in one of two ways: either you can pass a string that contains the actual XML-encoded permission set or you can provide the location of an XML file containing the encoded permission set. The following example uses XML with the PermissionSetAttribute. The XML flag is a string containing an XML-encoded permission set, which in this case represents an unrestricted UIPermission and an unrestricted RegistryPermission.

Example

//The attribute is placed at the assembly level.
using System.Security.Permissions;
[assembly:PermissionSetAttribute(SecurityAction.RequestMinimum, XML="<PermissionSet class=\"System.Security.PermissionSet\" version=\"1\"><Permission class=\"System.Security.Permissions.UIPermission, mscorlib\" version=\"1\"><AllWindows/></Permission><Permission class=\"System.Security.Permissions.RegistryPermission, mscorlib\" version=\"1\"><Unrestricted/></Permission></PermissionSet>")]
namespace MyNamespace 
{
   using System;
   using System.Runtime.InteropServices;
   public class MyClass 
   {
      public MyClass() 
      {
      }
      public void MyMethod() 
      {
        //Perform user interface operations here.
      }
   }
}

The following example shows a request for a custom permission set by providing the location and name of the file that contains the same XML-encoded permission set. If you do not specify the location of your XML file, the runtime looks for it in the same directory as the application.

//The attribute is placed at the assembly level.
using System.Security.Permissions;
[assembly:PermissionSetAttribute(SecurityAction.RequestMinimum, File = "pset.xml")]
namespace MyNamespace 
{
   using System;
   using System.Runtime.InteropServices;
   
   public class MyClass 
   {
      public MyClass() 
      {
      }
      public void MyMethod() 
      {
          //Perform operations that require permissions here.
      }
   }
}

Creating an XML-Encoded Permission Set

You can create an XML encoding of a permission set by creating an instance of the PermissionSet object, adding instances of the permissions you want to the object, and then calling the ToXml method to return a SecurityElement object that represents the XML encoding or calling the ToString method to return a string representation of the XML encoding.
