SocketPermission.FromXml Method (SecurityElement)


Reconstructs a SocketPermission instance for an XML encoding.

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

Public Overrides Sub FromXml (
	securityElement As SecurityElement


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.

Dim socketPermission1 As New SocketPermission(PermissionState.Unrestricted)

'Create a 'SocketPermission' object for two ip addresses.
Dim socketPermission2 As New SocketPermission(PermissionState.None)
Dim securityElement1 As SecurityElement = socketPermission2.ToXml()
''SocketPermission' object for 'Connect' permission
Dim securityElement2 As New 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.
Dim securityElement3 As New SecurityElement("URI", "")
'Second 'SocketPermission' ip-address is '' for 'All' transport types and for 'All' ports for the ip-address.
Dim securityElement4 As New SecurityElement("URI", "")

'Obtain a 'SocketPermission' object using 'FromXml' method.

Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.Cr + "Displays the result of FromXml method : " + ControlChars.Cr)

'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.
Dim socketPermission3 As New SocketPermission(NetworkAccess.Connect, TransportType.All, "", SocketPermission.AllPorts)

'Second 'SocketPermission' ip-address is '' for 'All' transport types and for 'All' ports for the ip-address.
socketPermission3.AddPermission(NetworkAccess.Connect, TransportType.All, "", SocketPermission.AllPorts)

Console.WriteLine("Displays the result of AddPermission method : " + ControlChars.Cr)

'Find the intersection between two 'SocketPermission' objects.
socketPermission1 = CType(socketPermission2.Intersect(socketPermission3), SocketPermission)

Console.WriteLine("Displays the result of Intersect method :" + ControlChars.Cr + " ")
'Demand that the calling method have the requsite socket permission.
