public abstract PermissionType Permission { get; set; }

Property value

Type: Microsoft.Office.InfoPath.PermissionType
One or a combination of PermissionType constants.

An instance of the UserPermission class associates a set of permissions on the current form with a single user and an optional expiration date. The Permission property gets or sets the set of user permissions specified by this UserPermission object. While some permissions granted through the user interface apply to all users, you can use the UserPermission object to assign them on a per-user basis with per-user expiration dates.

This member can be accessed only by forms running in the same domain as the currently open form, or by forms that have been granted cross-domain permissions.

This type or member can be accessed only from code running in forms opened in Microsoft InfoPath Filler.

In the following example, clicking the Button control gets the specified user from UserPermissionsCollection for the current form, and then displays that user's permissions.

public void CTRL1_Clicked(object sender, ClickedEventArgs e)
   UserPermission thisUser =
