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

Public Overrides Function ToXml As SecurityElement

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.
Dim myWebPermission1 As 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.
Dim myWebPermission2 As New WebPermission(PermissionState.None)

'Converts the new WebPermission from XML using myWebPermission1.
