WebPermissionAttribute.Accept Property

Gets or sets the URI string accepted by the current WebPermissionAttribute.

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

public function get Accept () : String 
public function set Accept (value : String)

Property Value

Type: System.String
A string containing the URI accepted by the current WebPermissionAttribute.


Accept is not a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) when you attempt to set the value. If you wish to specify more than one Accept URI, use an additional attribute declaration statement.

When applying WebPermissionAttribute to your class, this property specifies what URI string will be accepted for use within your class. This permission is applied when the security system calls CreatePermission. This property is write-once.

The following example demonstrates how to use WebPermissionAttribute to specify an allowable Accept string.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.
   // Deny access to a specific resource by setting the Accept property.
   [method:WebPermission(SecurityAction::Deny, Accept="")]
   static void CheckAcceptPermission(String* uriToCheck) {
      WebPermission* permissionToCheck = new WebPermission();
      permissionToCheck->AddPermission(NetworkAccess::Accept, uriToCheck);

   static void demoDenySite() {
      // Pass the security check when accessing allowed resources.
      Console::WriteLine(S"Public page has passed Accept permission check");

      try {
         // Throw a SecurityException when trying to access not allowed resources.
         Console::WriteLine(S"This line will not be printed");
      } catch (SecurityException* e) {
         Console::WriteLine(S"Exception trying to access private resource: {0}",
