ISecurityEncodable.FromXml Method

Reconstructs a security object with a specified state from an XML encoding.

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

Sub FromXml ( _
	e As SecurityElement _


Type: System.Security.SecurityElement

The XML encoding to use to reconstruct the security object.

Custom code that extends security objects needs to implement the ToXml and FromXml methods to make the objects security-encodable.

The following code example demonstrates implementing the FromXml method. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the ISecurityEncodable class.

    ' Populate the permission's fields from XML. 
    Public Overrides Sub FromXml(ByVal e As SecurityElement)
        m_specifiedAsUnrestricted = False
        m_flags = 0

        ' If XML indicates an unrestricted permission, make this permission unrestricted. 
        Dim s As String = CStr(e.Attributes("Unrestricted"))
        If Not (s Is Nothing) Then
            m_specifiedAsUnrestricted = Convert.ToBoolean(s)
            If m_specifiedAsUnrestricted Then
                m_flags = SoundPermissionState.PlayAnySound
            End If 
        End If 
        ' If XML indicates a restricted permission, parse the flags. 
        If Not m_specifiedAsUnrestricted Then
            s = CStr(e.Attributes("Flags"))
            If Not (s Is Nothing) Then
                m_flags = CType(Convert.ToInt32([Enum].Parse(GetType(SoundPermission), s, True)), SoundPermissionState)
            End If 
        End If 

    End Sub 'FromXml
