WebPermission.Union Method

Returns the logical union between two instances of the WebPermission class.

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

virtual IPermission^ Union (
	IPermission^ target
) override
public IPermission Union (
	IPermission target
public override function Union (
	target : IPermission
) : IPermission



The WebPermission to combine with the current WebPermission.

Return Value

A WebPermission that represents the union of the current instance and the target parameter. If either WebPermission is Unrestricted, the method returns a WebPermission that is Unrestricted. If the target is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic), the method returns a copy of the current WebPermission.

Exception typeCondition


target is not a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) or of type WebPermission.

Union returns a WebPermission that contains all the permissions in both target and the current instance.

The following example takes the logical union of two WebPermission instances to create a third instance of WebPermission.

// Create another WebPermission that is the Union of previous two WebPermission
// instances.
WebPermission^ myWebPermission3 = (WebPermission^)(myWebPermission1->Union( myWebPermission2 ));
Console::WriteLine( "\nAttributes and values of the WebPermission after the Union are : " );
// Display the attributes, values and children.
Console::WriteLine( myWebPermission3->ToXml() );

// Create another WebPermission that is the Union of previous two 
// WebPermission instances.
WebPermission myWebPermission3 = 
    (WebPermission) myWebPermission1.Union(myWebPermission2);
Console.WriteLine("\nAttributes and values of the WebPermission after" 
    + " the Union are : ");
// Display the attributes,values and children.
