X509Store Constructor (String)

Initializes a new instance of the X509Store class using the specified store name.

Namespace:  System.Security.Cryptography.X509Certificates
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

public:
X509Store(
	String^ storeName
)

Parameters

storeName
Type: System::String

A string value that represents the store name. See StoreName for more information.

Use this constructor to create an X509Store object using a particular X.509 store name for the current user. To create a new store, specify a name that does not exist. A new store will be created with that name.

The following code example opens an X.509 certificate store, adds and deletes certificates, and then closes the store. It assumes that you have three certificates to add to and remove from a local store.

#using <System.dll>
#using <System.Security.dll>

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Security::Cryptography;
using namespace System::Security::Cryptography::X509Certificates;

   //Create new X509 store called teststore from the local certificate store.
   X509Store ^ store = gcnew X509Store( "teststore",StoreLocation::CurrentUser );
   store->Open( OpenFlags::ReadWrite );
   X509Certificate2 ^ certificate = gcnew X509Certificate2;

   //Create certificates from certificate files. 
   //You must put in a valid path to three certificates in the following constructors.
   X509Certificate2 ^ certificate1 = gcnew X509Certificate2( "c:\\mycerts\\*****.cer" );
   X509Certificate2 ^ certificate2 = gcnew X509Certificate2( "c:\\mycerts\\*****.cer" );
   X509Certificate2 ^ certificate5 = gcnew X509Certificate2( "c:\\mycerts\\*****.cer" );

   //Create a collection and add two of the certificates.
   X509Certificate2Collection ^ collection = gcnew X509Certificate2Collection;
   collection->Add( certificate2 );
   collection->Add( certificate5 );

   //Add certificates to the store.
   store->Add( certificate1 );
   store->AddRange( collection );

   //Remove a certificate.
   store->Remove( certificate1 );

   //Remove a range of certificates.
   store->RemoveRange( collection );

   Console::WriteLine( "{1}Store name: {0}", store->Name, Environment::NewLine );
   if ( storecollection3->Count == 0 )
   {
      Console::WriteLine( "Store contains no certificates." );

   //Close the store.
