EContextType Enumeration

Describes the security context of the currently executing thread.

typedef enum {
    eCurrentContext    = 0x00,
    eRestrictedContext = 0x01
} EContextType;




Indicates the context on the current thread at the time the common language runtime (CLR) calls the IHostSecurityManager::GetSecurityContext method, or the context requested by the CLR in a call to the IHostSecurityManager::SetSecurityContext method.


Indicates a context over which the host has lower privileges, such as the garbage collector, or class or module constructors.

The CLR supplies one of the EContextType values as a parameter value in calls to the IHostSecurityManager::GetSecurityContext and IHostSecurityManager::SetSecurityContext methods.
