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)

virtual IPermission^ Intersect (
	IPermission^ target
) abstract
public abstract IPermission Intersect (
	IPermission target
public abstract function Intersect (
	target : IPermission
) : IPermission
Not applicable.



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.

   virtual IPermission^ Intersect( IPermission^ target ) override
      Console::WriteLine( "************* Entering Intersect *********************" );
      if ( target == nullptr )
         return nullptr;

#if ( debug ) 
      Console::WriteLine( "This is = {0}", ((NameIdPermission)this).Name );
      Console::WriteLine( "Target is {0}", ((NameIdPermission)target).m_Name );

      if (  !VerifyType( target ) )
         throw gcnew ArgumentException( String::Format( "Argument is wrong type.", this->GetType()->FullName ) );

      NameIdPermission^ operand = dynamic_cast<NameIdPermission^>(target);

      if ( operand->IsSubsetOf( this ) )
         return operand->Copy();
      else if ( this->IsSubsetOf( operand ) )
         return this->Copy();
         return nullptr;
