PermissionSetAttribute Class

Allows security actions for a PermissionSet to be applied to code using declarative security. This class cannot be inherited.

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

[SerializableAttribute]
[ComVisibleAttribute(true)]
[AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Assembly|AttributeTargets.Class|AttributeTargets.Struct|AttributeTargets.Constructor|AttributeTargets.Method, AllowMultiple = true, 
	Inherited = false)]
public sealed class PermissionSetAttribute : CodeAccessSecurityAttribute

The PermissionSetAttribute type exposes the following members.

  NameDescription
Public methodPermissionSetAttributeInitializes a new instance of the PermissionSetAttribute class with the specified SecurityAction.
Top

  NameDescription
Public propertyActionGets or sets a security action. (Inherited from SecurityAttribute.)
Public propertyFileGets or sets a file containing the XML representation of a custom permission set to be declared.
Public propertyHexGets or sets the hexadecimal representation of the XML encoded permission set.
Public propertyNameGets or sets the name of the permission set.
Public propertyTypeIdWhen implemented in a derived class, gets a unique identifier for this Attribute. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Public propertyUnicodeEncodedGets or sets a value indicating whether the file specified by File is Unicode or ASCII encoded.
Public propertyUnrestrictedGets or sets a value indicating whether full (unrestricted) permission to the resource protected by the attribute is declared. (Inherited from SecurityAttribute.)
Public propertyXMLGets or sets the XML representation of a permission set.

  NameDescription
Public methodCreatePermissionCreates and returns a new IPermission. (Overrides SecurityAttribute.CreatePermission().)
Public methodCreatePermissionSetCreates and returns a new PermissionSet.
Public methodEqualsInfrastructure. Returns a value that indicates whether this instance is equal to a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeReturns the hash code for this instance. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodIsDefaultAttributeWhen overridden in a derived class, indicates whether the value of this instance is the default value for the derived class. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Public methodMatchWhen overridden in a derived class, returns a value that indicates whether this instance equals a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

  NameDescription
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate method_Attribute.GetIDsOfNamesMaps a set of names to a corresponding set of dispatch identifiers. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate method_Attribute.GetTypeInfoRetrieves the type information for an object, which can be used to get the type information for an interface. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate method_Attribute.GetTypeInfoCountRetrieves the number of type information interfaces that an object provides (either 0 or 1). (Inherited from Attribute.)
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate method_Attribute.InvokeProvides access to properties and methods exposed by an object. (Inherited from Attribute.)

The PermissionSetAttribute properties Name, File, and XML are mutually exclusive, meaning that a permission set can have as its source only one of the following: a named permission set, a file containing an XML representation of a permission set, or a string containing an XML representation of a permission set.

The scope of the declaration that is allowed depends on the SecurityAction that is used. A SecurityAction performed on a PermissionSet is the equivalent of performing that action on each of the permissions within the set.

The security information declared by a security attribute is stored in the metadata of the attribute target and is accessed by the system at run time. Security attributes are used only for declarative security. For imperative security, use the corresponding permission class.

The following example shows the use of the PermissionSetAttribute Class.


// The #define statement for BuildFile must be included the first time this sample is run.  
// This causes the sample to create a file named 'LocalIntranet.xml' in the c:\temp folder.  
// After creating the LocalInternet.xml file, comment out the #define statement and rerun 
// the sample to demonstrate the use of the permission set attribute.
#define BuildFile
