This method uses the SecurityAction.LinkDemand flag to prevent being called from untrusted code; only the immediate caller is required to have SecurityPermissionAttribute.UnmanagedCode permission. If your code can be called from partially trusted code, do not pass the user input to Marshal class methods without validation.
The following code example creates a BooleanSwitch and uses the switch to determine whether to print an error message. The switch is created at the class level. The Main method passes its location to MyMethod, which prints an error message and the location where the error occurred.
'Class level declaration. ' Create a BooleanSwitch for data. Private Shared dataSwitch As New BooleanSwitch("Data", "DataAccess module") Public Shared Sub MyMethod(location As String) 'Insert code here to handle processing. If dataSwitch.Enabled Then Console.WriteLine(("Error happened at " + location)) End If End Sub 'MyMethod 'Entry point which delegates to C-style main Private Function Public Overloads Shared Sub Main() Main(System.Environment.GetCommandLineArgs()) End Sub Overloads Public Shared Sub Main(args() As String) 'Run the method that writes an error message specifying the location of the error. MyMethod("in Main") End Sub 'Main
