Initializes a new instance of the X509Store class using the specified StoreName and StoreLocation values.

Namespace:   System.Security.Cryptography.X509Certificates
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

public X509Store(
	StoreName storeName,
	StoreLocation storeLocation
)

Parameters

storeName
Type: System.Security.Cryptography.X509Certificates.StoreName

One of the enumeration values that specifies the name of the X.509 certificate store.

storeLocation
Type: System.Security.Cryptography.X509Certificates.StoreLocation

One of the enumeration values that specifies the location of the X.509 certificate store.

Exception Condition
ArgumentException

storeLocation is not a valid location or storeName is not a valid name.

Use this constructor to create an X509Store object, specifying both the store name and the store location.

The following code example opens an X.509 certificate store, adds and deletes certificates, and then closes the store. It assumes that you have three certificates to add to and remove from a local store.

using System;
using System.Security.Cryptography;
using System.Security.Cryptography.X509Certificates;
using System.IO;

public class X509store2
{
	public static void Main (string[] args)
	{
		//Create new X509 store called teststore from the local certificate store.
		X509Store store = new X509Store ("teststore", StoreLocation.CurrentUser);
		store.Open (OpenFlags.ReadWrite);
		X509Certificate2 certificate = new X509Certificate2 ();

		//Create certificates from certificate files.
		//You must put in a valid path to three certificates in the following constructors.
		X509Certificate2 certificate1 = new X509Certificate2 ("c:\\mycerts\\*****.cer");
		X509Certificate2 certificate2 = new X509Certificate2 ("c:\\mycerts\\*****.cer");
		X509Certificate2 certificate5 = new X509Certificate2 ("c:\\mycerts\\*****.cer");

		//Create a collection and add two of the certificates.
		X509Certificate2Collection collection = new X509Certificate2Collection ();
		collection.Add (certificate2);
		collection.Add (certificate5);

		//Add certificates to the store.
		store.Add (certificate1);
		store.AddRange (collection);

		X509Certificate2Collection storecollection = (X509Certificate2Collection)store.Certificates;
		Console.WriteLine ("Store name: {0}", store.Name);
		Console.WriteLine ("Store location: {0}", store.Location);
		foreach (X509Certificate2 x509 in storecollection)
		{
			Console.WriteLine("certificate name: {0}",x509.Subject);
		}

		//Remove a certificate.
		store.Remove (certificate1);
		X509Certificate2Collection storecollection2 = (X509Certificate2Collection)store.Certificates;
		Console.WriteLine ("{1}Store name: {0}", store.Name, Environment.NewLine);
		foreach (X509Certificate2 x509 in storecollection2)
		{
			Console.WriteLine ("certificate name: {0}", x509.Subject);
		}

		//Remove a range of certificates.
		store.RemoveRange (collection);
		X509Certificate2Collection storecollection3 = (X509Certificate2Collection)store.Certificates;
		Console.WriteLine ("{1}Store name: {0}", store.Name, Environment.NewLine);
		if (storecollection3.Count == 0)
		{
			Console.WriteLine ("Store contains no certificates.");
		}
		else
		{
			foreach (X509Certificate2 x509 in storecollection3)
			{
				Console.WriteLine ("certificate name: {0}", x509.Subject);
			}
		}

		//Close the store.
		store.Close ();
	}	
}
