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


Type: System.Security::IPermission

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

Return Value

Type: System.Security::IPermission
A new permission that represents the intersection of the current permission and the specified permission. This new permission is nullptr if the intersection is empty.




The target parameter is not nullptr 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;
