FromXml Method

CodeAccessPermission.FromXml Method (SecurityElement)


When overridden in a derived class, reconstructs a security object with a specified state from an XML encoding.

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

public abstract void FromXml(
	SecurityElement elem


Type: System.Security.SecurityElement

The XML encoding to use to reconstruct the security object.

Exception Condition

The elem parameter is null.


The elem parameter does not contain the XML encoding for an instance of the same type as the current instance.


The version number of the elem parameter is not supported.

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

Notes to Inheritors:

You must override this method in a derived class.

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

public override void FromXml(SecurityElement e)
     // The following code for unrestricted permission is only included as an example for
     // permissions that allow the unrestricted state. It is of no value for this permission.
     String elUnrestricted = e.Attribute("Unrestricted");
     if (null != elUnrestricted)
         m_Unrestricted = bool.Parse(elUnrestricted);

     String elName = e.Attribute( "Name" );
     m_Name = elName == null ? null : elName;
