CodeAccessPermission.Intersect Method

When implemented by a derived class, creates and returns a permission that is the intersection of the current permission and the specified permission.

Namespace: System.Security
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

Public MustOverride Function Intersect ( _
	target As IPermission _
) As IPermission
Dim instance As CodeAccessPermission
Dim target As IPermission
Dim returnValue As IPermission

returnValue = instance.Intersect(target)
public abstract IPermission Intersect (
	IPermission target
public abstract function Intersect (
	target : IPermission
) : IPermission



A permission to intersect with the current permission. It must be of the same type as the current permission.

Return Value

A new permission that represents the intersection of the current permission and the specified permission. This new permission is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) if the intersection is empty.

Exception typeCondition


The target parameter is not a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) and is not an instance of the same class as the current permission.

The intersection of two permissions is a permission that describes the set of operations they both describe in common. Only a demand that passes both original permissions will pass the intersection.

Notes to Inheritors You must override this method in a derived class.

The following code example shows an override of the Intersect method. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the CodeAccessPermission class.

        Public Overrides Function Intersect(ByVal target As IPermission) As IPermission
            Console.WriteLine("************* Entering Intersect *********************")
            If target Is Nothing Then
                Return Nothing
            End If
#If (Debug) Then

            Console.WriteLine(("This is = " + CType(Me, NameIdPermission).Name))
            Console.WriteLine(("Target is " + CType(target, NameIdPermission).m_name))
#End If
            If Not VerifyType(target) Then
                Throw New ArgumentException(String.Format("Argument is wrong type.", Me.GetType().FullName))
            End If

            Dim operand As NameIdPermission = CType(target, NameIdPermission)

            If operand.IsSubsetOf(Me) Then
                Return operand.Copy()
            ElseIf Me.IsSubsetOf(operand) Then
                Return Me.Copy()
                Return Nothing
            End If
        End Function 'Intersect
