SocketPermission.ToXml Method

Creates an XML encoding of a SocketPermission instance and its current state.

Namespace:  System.Net
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)
public override SecurityElement ToXml()

Return Value

Type: System.Security.SecurityElement
A SecurityElement instance that contains an XML-encoded representation of the SocketPermission instance, including state information.

Implements

ISecurityEncodable.ToXml()

The ToXml method creates a SecurityElement instance to encode a representation of the SocketPermission instance, including state information, in XML.

Use the FromXml method to restore the state information from a SecurityElement instance.

The following example uses the ToXml method to convert a SocketPermission to XML.
