SocketPermission::FromXml Method (SecurityElement^)


Reconstructs a SocketPermission instance for an XML encoding.

Namespace:   System.Net
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

virtual void FromXml(
	SecurityElement^ securityElement
) override


Type: System.Security::SecurityElement^

The XML encoding used to reconstruct the SocketPermission instance.

Exception Condition

The securityElement is null.


The securityElement is not a permission element for this type.

The FromXml method reconstructs a SocketPermission instance from an XML encoding defined by the SecurityElement class.

Use the ToXml method to encode the SocketPermission instance, including state information, in XML.

The following example uses the FromXml method to convert XML encoded data to a SocketPermission instance.

SocketPermission^ socketPermission1 = gcnew SocketPermission( PermissionState::Unrestricted );

// Create a 'SocketPermission' Object* for two ip addresses.
SocketPermission^ socketPermission2 = gcnew SocketPermission( PermissionState::None );
SecurityElement^ securityElement1 = socketPermission2->ToXml();
// 'SocketPermission' Object* for 'Connect' permission
SecurityElement^ securityElement2 = gcnew SecurityElement( "ConnectAccess" );
// Format to specify ip address are <ip-address>#<port>#<transport-type>
// First 'SocketPermission' ip-address is '' for 'All' transport types and
// for 'All'ports for the ip-address.
SecurityElement^ securityElement3 = gcnew SecurityElement( "URI","" );
// Second 'SocketPermission' ip-address is '' for 'All' transport types and
// for 'All' ports for the ip-address.
SecurityElement^ securityElement4 = gcnew SecurityElement( "URI","" );
securityElement2->AddChild( securityElement3 );
securityElement2->AddChild( securityElement4 );
securityElement1->AddChild( securityElement2 );

// Obtain a 'SocketPermission' Object* using 'FromXml' method.
socketPermission2->FromXml( securityElement1 );

Console::WriteLine( "\nDisplays the result of FromXml method : \n" );
Console::WriteLine( socketPermission2 );

// Create another 'SocketPermission' Object* with two ip addresses.
// First 'SocketPermission' ip-address is '' for 'All' transport types and for 'All' ports for the ip-address.
SocketPermission^ socketPermission3 =
   gcnew SocketPermission( NetworkAccess::Connect,
      SocketPermission::AllPorts );

// Second 'SocketPermission' ip-address is '' for 'All' transport types and for 'All' ports for the ip-address.
socketPermission3->AddPermission( NetworkAccess::Connect,
   SocketPermission::AllPorts );

Console::WriteLine( "Displays the result of AddPermission method : \n" );
Console::WriteLine( socketPermission3 );

// Find the intersection between two 'SocketPermission' objects.
socketPermission1 = dynamic_cast<SocketPermission^>(socketPermission2->Intersect( socketPermission3 ));

Console::WriteLine( "Displays the result of Intersect method :\n " );
Console::WriteLine( socketPermission1 );

// Demand that the calling method have the requsite socket permission.
