The FromXml method reconstructs a WebPermission from an XML encoding that is defined by the SecurityElement class.

Use the ToXml method to XML-encode the WebPermission, including state information.

The following example creates a System.Security.SecurityElement, populates its attributes, and uses FromXml to transfer this information to an instance of WebPermission.

// Create  a WebPermission without permission on the protected resource.
WebPermission myWebPermission1 = new WebPermission(PermissionState.None);

// Create a SecurityElement by calling the ToXml method on the WebPermission 
// instance and display its attributes (which hold the XML encoding of 
// the WebPermission).
Console.WriteLine("Attributes and Values of the WebPermission are :");

// Create another WebPermission with no permission on the protected resource.
WebPermission myWebPermission2 = new WebPermission(PermissionState.None);

//Converts the new WebPermission from XML using myWebPermission1.
