Return Value

Type: System.Security.IPermission
A new instance of the DnsPermission class that is an identical copy of the current instance.



A copy of a DnsPermission instance provides the same access to DNS servers as the original permission instance.

The following example creates an identical copy of an existing DnsPermission instance.

Public Sub UseDns()
    ' Create a DnsPermission instance. 
    Dim myPermission As New DnsPermission(PermissionState.Unrestricted)
    ' Check for permission.
    ' Create an identical copy of the above DnsPermission object. 
    Dim myPermissionCopy As DnsPermission = CType(myPermission.Copy(), DnsPermission)
    Console.WriteLine("Attributes and Values of 'DnsPermission' instance :")
    ' Print the attributes and values.
    Console.WriteLine("Attribute and values of copied instance :")
End Sub 'UseDns

Private Sub PrintKeysAndValues(myHashtable As Hashtable)
    ' Get the enumerator that can iterate through he hash table. 
    Dim myEnumerator As IDictionaryEnumerator = myHashtable.GetEnumerator()
    Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.Tab + "-KEY-" + ControlChars.Tab + "-VALUE-")
    While myEnumerator.MoveNext()
        Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.Tab + "{0}:" + ControlChars.Tab + "{1}", myEnumerator.Key, myEnumerator.Value)
    End While
End Sub 'PrintKeysAndValues
   void UseDns() 
      // Create a DnsPermission instance.
      DnsPermission* myPermission = new DnsPermission(PermissionState::Unrestricted);
      // Check for permission.
      // Create an identical copy of the above 'DnsPermission' Object*.
      DnsPermission* myPermissionCopy = dynamic_cast<DnsPermission*>(myPermission->Copy());
      Console::WriteLine(S"Attributes and Values of 'DnsPermission' instance :");
      // Print the attributes and values.
      Console::WriteLine(S"Attribute and values of copied instance :");

   void PrintKeysAndValues(Hashtable* myHashtable) 
      // Get the enumerator that can iterate through the hash table.
      IDictionaryEnumerator* myEnumerator = myHashtable->GetEnumerator();
      while (myEnumerator->MoveNext())
         Console::WriteLine(S"\t {0}:\t {1}", myEnumerator->Key, myEnumerator->Value);
