LicenseProvider Class

Provides the abstract base class for implementing a license provider.

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

public abstract class LicenseProvider
public abstract class LicenseProvider
public abstract class LicenseProvider
Not applicable.

Notes to Inheritors: When you inherit from LicenseProvider, you must override the GetLicense method. See LicFileLicenseProvider for an implementation of this class. For more information on licensing, see How to: License Components and Controls.

The following code example creates a licensed control using the Validate method. It uses a LicenseProvider that is implemented by the LicFileLicenseProvider class.

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;
         }
      }
   }
 
}

    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) {

                license = null;
