This enumeration is used by the HostProtectionAttribute attribute.

The following code example shows the use of the HostProtectionResource enumeration with the HostProtectionAttribute attribute. This example is part of a larger example provided for the HostProtectionAttribute class.

' Use the enumeration flags to indicate that this method exposes 
' shared state and self-affecting process management.
' Either of the following attribute statements can be used to set the 
' resource flags.
<HostProtectionAttribute(SharedState := True, _
    SelfAffectingProcessMgmt := True), _
    HostProtectionAttribute( _
    Resources := HostProtectionResource.SharedState Or _
    HostProtectionResource.SelfAffectingProcessMgmt)> _
Private Shared Sub [Exit](ByVal Message As String, ByVal Code As Integer)

    ' Exit the sample when an exception is thrown.
    Console.WriteLine((ControlChars.Lf & "FAILED: " & Message & " " & _
    Environment.ExitCode = Code
End Sub 'Exit
