Creates and returns a new instance of the SocketPermission class.

Namespace: System.Net
Assembly: System (in system.dll)

Public Overrides Function CreatePermission As IPermission
Dim instance As SocketPermissionAttribute
Dim returnValue As IPermission

returnValue = instance.CreatePermission
public IPermission CreatePermission ()
public override function CreatePermission () : IPermission

Return Value

An instance of the SocketPermission class that corresponds to the security declaration.

Exception typeCondition


One or more of the current instance's Access, Host, Transport, or Port properties is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

The CreatePermission method is called by the security system, not by the application code. The security information described by SocketPermissionAttribute is stored in the metadata of the attribute target, which is the class to which the SocketPermissionAttribute is applied. The system then accesses the information at run-time and calls CreatePermission. The system uses the returned IPermission to enforce the specified security requirements.
