AsnEncodedData::CopyFrom Method (AsnEncodedData^)

 

Copies information from an AsnEncodedData object.

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

public:
virtual void CopyFrom(
	AsnEncodedData^ asnEncodedData
)

Parameters

asnEncodedData
Type: System.Security.Cryptography::AsnEncodedData^

The AsnEncodedData object to base the new object on.

Exception Condition
ArgumentNullException

asnEncodedData is null.

This method copies information to an AsnEncodedData object based on the specified AsnEncodedData object.

The following code example shows how to use the AsnEncodedData class.

#using <System.dll>
#using <System.Security.dll>

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Security::Cryptography;
using namespace System::Security::Cryptography::X509Certificates;

int main()
{

   //The following example demonstrates the usage of the AsnEncodedData classes.
   // Asn encoded data is read from the extensions of an X509 certificate.
   try
   {

      // Open the certificate store.
      X509Store^ store = gcnew X509Store( L"MY",StoreLocation::CurrentUser );

      X509Certificate2Collection^ fcollection = dynamic_cast<X509Certificate2Collection^>(collection->Find( X509FindType::FindByTimeValid, DateTime::Now, false ));

      // Select one or more certificates to display extensions information.
      X509Certificate2Collection^ scollection = X509Certificate2UI::SelectFromCollection(fcollection, L"Certificate Select",L"Select certificates from the following list to get extension information on that certificate",X509SelectionFlag::MultiSelection);

      // Create a new AsnEncodedDataCollection object.
      AsnEncodedDataCollection^ asncoll = gcnew AsnEncodedDataCollection;

      Console::WriteLine( L"Second AsnEncodedData in the collection: {0}", asne->Current->Format(true) );
      Console::ResetColor();

      //Return index in the collection to the beginning.
      asne->Reset();
   }
   catch ( CryptographicException^ )
