Permission.Enabled property

Office 2013 and later

Gets or sets whether the permission settings represented by the Permission object are enabled for the current form.

Namespace:  Microsoft.Office.Interop.InfoPath.SemiTrust
Assembly:  Microsoft.Office.Interop.InfoPath.SemiTrust (in Microsoft.Office.Interop.InfoPath.SemiTrust.dll)

bool Enabled { get; set; }

Property value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the permission settings are enabled; otherwise false.

Use the Enabled property to determine whether permissions are restricted on the active form, and to enable or disable permissions. Set Enabled to false to disable permissions and to remove all users, other than the form author, and their permissions.


In preview mode, the Enabled property will always return false, and if code attempts to change this setting, a System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException is raised and the message "The property/method is not available in preview mode" is returned.

Because the Permission object and its members are new to Microsoft InfoPath, you must cast the object returned by the thisXDocument variable to the _XDocument3 type to access this object and its members. For more information, see How to: Use Microsoft.Office.Interop.InfoPath.SemiTrust Members That Are Not Compatible with InfoPath 2003.

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.

In the following example, the Enabled property is used to display whether permission settings are enabled for the current form.

_XDocument3 thisDoc = (_XDocument3)thisXDocument;
