CodeAccessPermission.Union Method

When overridden in a derived class, creates a permission that is the union of the current permission and the specified permission.

Namespace:  System.Security
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public virtual IPermission Union(
	IPermission other
)

Parameters

other
Type: System.Security.IPermission

A permission to combine with the current permission. It must be of the same type as the current permission.

Return Value

Type: System.Security.IPermission
A new permission that represents the union of the current permission and the specified permission.

Implements

IPermission.Union(IPermission)

ExceptionCondition
NotSupportedException

The other parameter is not null. This method is only supported at this level when passed null.

The result of a call to Union is a permission that represents all the operations represented by both the current permission and the specified permission. Any demand that passes either permission passes their union.

Notes to Inheritors:

You must override this method in a derived class. You should return a copy of the permission if the value of the other parameter is null.

The following code example shows an override of the Union method. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the CodeAccessPermission class.

        public override IPermission Union(IPermission target)
        {
#if(debug)
            Console.WriteLine ("************* Entering Union *********************");
#endif
            if (target == null)
            {
                return this;
            }
#if(debug)
            Console.WriteLine ("This is = " + (( NameIdPermission)this).Name);
            Console.WriteLine ("Target is " + (( NameIdPermission)target).m_Name);
#endif
            if (!VerifyType(target))
            {
                throw new ArgumentException (String.Format ("Argument_WrongType", this.GetType ().FullName));
            }

             NameIdPermission operand = ( NameIdPermission)target;

            if (operand.IsSubsetOf (this)) return this.Copy ();
            else if (this.IsSubsetOf (operand)) return operand.Copy ();
            else 
                return null;
        }
