The WebPermission to combine with the current WebPermission.

Return Value

Type: System.Security::IPermission^

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 null, the method returns a copy of the current WebPermission.

Exception Condition

target is not null 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() );
