FileIOPermission Constructor (FileIOPermissionAccess, AccessControlActions, String[])

Initializes a new instance of the FileIOPermission class with the specified access to the designated files and directories and the specified access rights to file control information.

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

public FileIOPermission(
	FileIOPermissionAccess access,
	AccessControlActions control,
	string[] pathList
)

Parameters

access
Type: System.Security.Permissions.FileIOPermissionAccess

A bitwise combination of the FileIOPermissionAccess enumeration values.

control
Type: System.Security.AccessControl.AccessControlActions

A bitwise combination of the AccessControlActions enumeration values.

pathList
Type: System.String[]

An array containing the absolute paths of the files and directories.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentException

The access parameter is not a valid value of FileIOPermissionAccess.

-or-

An entry in the pathList array is not a valid string.

This constructor allows only one FileIOPermissionAccess value to be specified for the specified files and directories. Use the AddPathList method to define complex permissions.

The control parameter specifies whether the access control list (ACL) for the file or directory specified by path can be changed, viewed, or cannot be accessed.

Important noteImportant

An access control list (ACL) describes individuals or groups who have, or do not have, rights to specific actions on the given file and its properties. The ability to change or view an ACL is an important permission and should be granted with caution.
