ApplicationDirectoryMembershipCondition Class

Determines whether an assembly belongs to a code group by testing its application directory. This class cannot be inherited.


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

public sealed class ApplicationDirectoryMembershipCondition : IMembershipCondition, 
	ISecurityEncodable, ISecurityPolicyEncodable

The ApplicationDirectoryMembershipCondition type exposes the following members.

Public methodApplicationDirectoryMembershipConditionInitializes a new instance of the ApplicationDirectoryMembershipCondition class.

Public methodCheckDetermines whether the membership condition is satisfied by the specified evidence.
Public methodCopyCreates an equivalent copy of the membership condition.
Public methodEqualsDetermines whether the specified membership condition is an ApplicationDirectoryMembershipCondition. (Overrides Object.Equals(Object).)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodFromXml(SecurityElement)Reconstructs a security object with a specified state from an XML encoding.
Public methodFromXml(SecurityElement, PolicyLevel)Reconstructs a security object with a specified state from an XML encoding.
Public methodGetHashCodeGets the hash code for the current membership condition. (Overrides Object.GetHashCode().)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringCreates and returns a string representation of the membership condition. (Overrides Object.ToString().)
Public methodToXml()Creates an XML encoding of the security object and its current state.
Public methodToXml(PolicyLevel)Creates an XML encoding of the security object and its current state with the specified PolicyLevel.

ApplicationDirectoryMembershipCondition determines whether an ApplicationDirectory Directory property contains the assembly URL evidence path. For example, if the ApplicationDirectory is C:\app1, assemblies with URL evidence such as C:\app1, C:\app1\main.aspx, C:\app1\folder1, or C:\app1\folder1\main1.aspx match this membership condition. Code that is not in the C:\app1 directory or in one of its subdirectories fails this membership condition test.

Code without either ApplicationDirectory or Url evidence always fails this membership condition test.


The membership condition is determined by the URL evidence for the application. You cannot configure the ApplicationDirectoryMembershipCondition object; it is predetermined by the location of the application.
