ToXml Method

WebPermission.ToXml Method

Creates an XML encoding of a WebPermission and its current state.

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

public override SecurityElement ToXml()

Return Value

Type: System.Security.SecurityElement
A SecurityElement that contains an XML-encoded representation of the WebPermission, including state information.



Use the FromXml method to restore the state information from a SecurityElement.

The following example demonstrates how to use ToXml to create a System.Security.SecurityElement and print its attributes to the console.

    // 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.
