LicFileLicenseProvider Class

Provides an implementation of a LicenseProvider. The provider works in a similar fashion to the Microsoft .NET Framework standard licensing model.

Namespace: System.ComponentModel
Assembly: System (in system.dll)

public class LicFileLicenseProvider : LicenseProvider
public class LicFileLicenseProvider extends LicenseProvider
public class LicFileLicenseProvider extends LicenseProvider
Not applicable.

The LicFileLicenseProvider offers GetLicense and IsKeyValid methods. The IsKeyValid method determines whether the LicenseKey retrieved by the GetLicense method is valid. When you inherit from this class, you can override the IsKeyValid method to provide your own validation logic.

This class exists to provide similar licensing functionality to COM licensing and uses text license files.

For more information on licensing, see How to: License Components and Controls.

The following example creates a licensed control using the Validate method. It uses LicFileLicenseProvider for the license manager.

using System;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Windows.Forms;


// Adds the LicenseProviderAttribute to the control.
[LicenseProvider(typeof(LicFileLicenseProvider))]
public class MyControl : Control 
{
 
   // Creates a new, null license.
   private License license = null;
 
   public MyControl () 
   {
 
      // Adds Validate to the control's constructor.
      license = LicenseManager.Validate(typeof(MyControl), this);
 
      // Insert code to perform other instance creation tasks here.
   }
 
   protected override void Dispose(bool disposing) 
   {
      if(disposing)
      {
         if (license != null) 
         {
            license.Dispose();
            license = null;
         }
      }
   }
 
}

import System.*;
import System.ComponentModel.*;
import System.Windows.Forms.*;


// Adds the LicenseProviderAttribute to the control.
/** @attribute LicenseProvider(LicFileLicenseProvider.class)
 */
public class MyControl extends Control
{
    // Creates a new, null license.
    private License license = null;

    public MyControl()
    {
        // Adds Validate to the control's constructor.
        license = LicenseManager.Validate(MyControl.class.ToType(), this);

        // Insert code to perform other instance creation tasks here.
    } 
    
    protected void Dispose(boolean disposing)
    {
        if (disposing) {
            if (license != null) {
                license.Dispose();
                license = null;
            }
        }
    } 
}
