public sealed class X509Certificate2UI
public final class X509Certificate2UI
public final class X509Certificate2UI

Use the methods of the X509Certificate2UI class to present user interface dialogs that display detailed information about an X.509 certificate or allow users to select one or more certificates from a collection of X.509 certificates.

The following code example demonstrates how to display user interface dialogs to select and view X.509 certificates.

using System;
using System.Security.Cryptography;
using System.Security.Permissions;
using System.IO;
using System.Security.Cryptography.X509Certificates;

class CertSelect
{
	static void Main()
	{
		try
		{
			X509Store store = new X509Store("MY",StoreLocation.CurrentUser);
			store.Open(OpenFlags.ReadOnly | OpenFlags.OpenExistingOnly);
			X509Certificate2Collection collection = (X509Certificate2Collection)store.Certificates;
			X509Certificate2Collection fcollection = (X509Certificate2Collection)collection.Find(X509FindType.FindByTimeValid,DateTime.Now,false);
			X509Certificate2Collection scollection = X509Certificate2UI.SelectFromCollection(fcollection, "Test Certificate Select","Select a certificate from the following list to get information on that certificate",X509SelectionFlag.MultiSelection);
			Console.WriteLine("Number of certificates: {0}{1}",scollection.Count,Environment.NewLine);
				foreach (X509Certificate2 x509 in scollection)
				{
					byte[] rawdata = x509.RawData;
					Console.WriteLine("Content Type: {0}{1}",X509Certificate2.GetCertContentType(rawdata),Environment.NewLine);
					Console.WriteLine("Friendly Name: {0}{1}",x509.FriendlyName,Environment.NewLine);
					Console.WriteLine("Certificate Verified?: {0}{1}",x509.Verify(),Environment.NewLine);
					Console.WriteLine("Simple Name: {0}{1}",x509.GetNameInfo(X509NameType.SimpleName,true),Environment.NewLine);
					Console.WriteLine("Signature Algorithm: {0}{1}",x509.SignatureAlgorithm.FriendlyName,Environment.NewLine);
					Console.WriteLine("Private Key: {0}{1}",x509.PrivateKey.ToXmlString(false),Environment.NewLine);
					Console.WriteLine("Public Key: {0}{1}",x509.PublicKey.Key.ToXmlString(false),Environment.NewLine);
					Console.WriteLine("Certificate Archived?: {0}{1}",x509.Archived,Environment.NewLine);
					Console.WriteLine("Length of Raw Data: {0}{1}",x509.RawData.Length,Environment.NewLine);
					X509Certificate2UI.DisplayCertificate(x509);
					x509.Reset();
				}
			store.Close();
			}
		catch (CryptographicException)
			{
				   Console.WriteLine("Information could not be written out for this certificate.");
			}
