CodeAccessPermission.IsSubsetOf Method (IPermission)
When implemented by a derived class, determines whether the current permission is a subset of the specified permission.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
A permission that is to be tested for the subset relationship. This permission must be of the same type as the current permission.
Return ValueType: System.Boolean
true if the current permission is a subset of the specified permission; otherwise, false.
The target parameter is not null and is not of the same type as the current permission.
The current permission is a subset of the specified permission if the current permission specifies a set of operations that is wholly contained by the specified permission. For example, a permission that represents access to C:\example.txt is a subset of a permission that represents access to C:\. If this method returns true, the current permission represents no more access to the protected resource than does the specified permission.
X.IsSubsetOf(X) returns true.
X.IsSubsetOf(Y) returns the same value as Y.IsSubsetOf(X) if and only if X and Y represent the same set of permissions.
If X.IsSubsetOf(Y) and Y.IsSubsetOf(Z) both return true, X.IsSubsetOf(Z) returns true.
X.IsSubsetOf(U) returns true.
X.IsSubsetOf(N) returns false.
N.IsSubsetOf(X) returns true.
If X and Y represent custom code access permission objects that are null references, X.IsSubsetOf(Y) returns true. If Z is also null, the compound set operation X.Union(Y).IsSubsetOf(Z) also returns true because the union of two null permissions is a null permission.
Notes to Inheritors:
You must override this method in a derived class.
