Principal Constructor

Initializes a new instance of the Principal class. This constructor is called by derived-class constructors to initialize the base class and is not intended to be called directly from your code.

Namespace:  System.DirectoryServices.AccountManagement
Assembly:  System.DirectoryServices.AccountManagement (in System.DirectoryServices.AccountManagement.dll)

protected Principal()

Custom extension classes that derive from this class can call this constructor from the derived class constructor to initialize the base class. For more information, see the Principal Extensions overview topic.
