SocketPermission Constructor (PermissionState)

 
System_CAPS_noteNote

The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on docs.microsoft.com to see the new experience.

Initializes a new instance of the SocketPermission class that allows unrestricted access to the Socket or disallows access to the Socket.

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

Public Sub New (
	state As PermissionState
)

Parameters

state
Type: System.Security.Permissions.PermissionState

One of the PermissionState values.

If the SocketPermission instance is created with the Unrestricted value from PermissionState then the SocketPermission instance passes all demands. Any other value for state results in a SocketPermission instance that fails all demands unless a transport address permission is added with AddPermission.

The following example creates a SocketPermission using a PermissionState enumerated value.


Dim socketPermission1 As New SocketPermission(PermissionState.Unrestricted)

'Create a 'SocketPermission' object for two ip addresses.
Dim socketPermission2 As New SocketPermission(PermissionState.None)
Dim securityElement1 As SecurityElement = socketPermission2.ToXml()
''SocketPermission' object for 'Connect' permission
Dim securityElement2 As New SecurityElement("ConnectAccess")
'Format to specify ip address are <ip-address>#<port>#<transport-type>
'First 'SocketPermission' ip-address is '192.168.144.238' for 'All' transport types and for 'All'
' ports for the ip-address.
Dim securityElement3 As New SecurityElement("URI", "192.168.144.238#-1#3")
'Second 'SocketPermission' ip-address is '192.168.144.240' for 'All' transport types and for 'All' ports for the ip-address.
Dim securityElement4 As New SecurityElement("URI", "192.168.144.240#-1#3")
securityElement2.AddChild(securityElement3)
securityElement2.AddChild(securityElement4)
securityElement1.AddChild(securityElement2)


'Obtain a 'SocketPermission' object using 'FromXml' method.
socketPermission2.FromXml(securityElement1)

Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.Cr + "Displays the result of FromXml method : " + ControlChars.Cr)
Console.WriteLine(socketPermission2.ToString())

'Create another 'SocketPermission' object with two ip addresses.
'First 'SocketPermission' ip-address is '192.168.144.238' for 'All' transport types and for 'All' ports for the ip-address.
Dim socketPermission3 As New SocketPermission(NetworkAccess.Connect, TransportType.All, "192.168.144.238", SocketPermission.AllPorts)

'Second 'SocketPermission' ip-address is '192.168.144.239' for 'All' transport types and for 'All' ports for the ip-address.
socketPermission3.AddPermission(NetworkAccess.Connect, TransportType.All, "192.168.144.239", SocketPermission.AllPorts)

Console.WriteLine("Displays the result of AddPermission method : " + ControlChars.Cr)
Console.WriteLine(socketPermission3.ToString())

'Find the intersection between two 'SocketPermission' objects.
socketPermission1 = CType(socketPermission2.Intersect(socketPermission3), SocketPermission)

Console.WriteLine("Displays the result of Intersect method :" + ControlChars.Cr + " ")
Console.WriteLine(socketPermission1.ToString())
'Demand that the calling method have the requsite socket permission.
socketPermission1.Demand()
