This content is no longer actively maintained. It is provided as is, for anyone who may still be using these technologies, with no warranties or claims of accuracy with regard to the most recent product version or service release.

Returns an entity object whose masks are equal to the specified masks.

Applies To


objEntity  objDACL.SearchForObjectForAnEqualMask(Masks);


An array of one or more hexadecimal values. Each mask is the 32-bit access mask for the Access Control Entry (ACE).

Return Value

A returned entity object.


This method differs from SearchForObjectByMask in that only a set of masks that are equal in number to the specified masks will result in a match. This method calls the entity object's IsEqualMask Method for searching.

If there is more than one entity in the DACL with an equal number of masks, this method only returns one object of the first matched set of masks.


var objEntity = objDacl.SearchForObjectForAnEqualMask([0x1, 0x2, 0x3, 0x4, 0x5, 0x6]);
if(null == objEntity){
    //no one had this mask
