Return Value

Type: System.Security.IPermission
A new instance of the SocketPermission class that is a copy of the current instance.



The object returned by this method represents the same level of access as the current instance. This method overrides Copy and is implemented to support the IPermission interface.

The following example creates a SocketPermission by taking a copy of an existing SocketPermission.

' Creates a copy of the intersect SocketPermission. 
Dim mySocketPermissionIntersectCopy As SocketPermission = CType(mySocketPermissionIntersect.Copy(), SocketPermission)

If mySocketPermissionIntersectCopy.Equals(mySocketPermissionIntersect) Then
   Console.WriteLine("Copy successfull")
End If
// Creates a copy of the intersect SocketPermission.
SocketPermission *mySocketPermissionIntersectCopy = 
    __try_cast<SocketPermission *>(mySocketPermissionIntersect->Copy());

if (mySocketPermissionIntersectCopy->Equals(mySocketPermissionIntersect)){
    Console::WriteLine("Copy successfull");
