AsnEncodedDataEnumerator.Current Property


The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on to see the new experience.

Gets the current AsnEncodedData object in an AsnEncodedDataCollection object.

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

public AsnEncodedData Current { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Security.Cryptography.AsnEncodedData

The current AsnEncodedData object in the collection.

After an enumerator is created, the MoveNext method must be called to advance the enumerator to the first element of the collection before reading the value of the Current property; otherwise, Current returns null or throws an exception.

Current also returns null or throws an exception if the last call to MoveNext returns false, which indicates that the end of the collection has been reached.

Current does not move the position of the enumerator, and consecutive calls to Current return the same object until MoveNext is called.

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

using System;
using System.Security.Cryptography;
using System.Security.Cryptography.X509Certificates;

class AsnEncodedDataSample
	static void Main()
		//The following example demonstrates the usage the AsnEncodedData classes.
		// Asn encoded data is read from the extensions of an X509 certificate.
			// Open the certificate store.
			X509Store store = new X509Store("MY", StoreLocation.CurrentUser);
			store.Open(OpenFlags.ReadOnly | OpenFlags.OpenExistingOnly);
			X509Certificate2Collection collection = (X509Certificate2Collection)store.Certificates;
			X509Certificate2Collection fcollection = (X509Certificate2Collection)collection.Find(X509FindType.FindByTimeValid, DateTime.Now, false);
			// Select one or more certificates to display extensions information.
			X509Certificate2Collection scollection = X509Certificate2UI.SelectFromCollection(fcollection, "Certificate Select", "Select certificates from the following list to get extension information on that certificate", X509SelectionFlag.MultiSelection);

			// Create a new AsnEncodedDataCollection object.
			AsnEncodedDataCollection asncoll = new AsnEncodedDataCollection();
			for (int i = 0; i < scollection.Count; i++)
				// Display certificate information.
				Console.ForegroundColor = ConsoleColor.Red;
				Console.WriteLine("Certificate name: {0}", scollection[i].GetName());
				// Display extensions information.
				foreach (X509Extension extension in scollection[i].Extensions)
					// Create an AsnEncodedData object using the extensions information.
					AsnEncodedData asndata = new AsnEncodedData(extension.Oid, extension.RawData);
					Console.ForegroundColor = ConsoleColor.Green;
					Console.WriteLine("Extension type: {0}", extension.Oid.FriendlyName);
					Console.WriteLine("Oid value: {0}",asndata.Oid.Value);
					Console.WriteLine("Raw data length: {0} {1}", asndata.RawData.Length, Environment.NewLine);
					// Add the AsnEncodedData object to the AsnEncodedDataCollection object.
			Console.ForegroundColor = ConsoleColor.Red;
			Console.WriteLine("Number of AsnEncodedData items in the collection: {0} {1}", asncoll.Count, Environment.NewLine);

			//Create an enumerator for moving through the collection.
			AsnEncodedDataEnumerator asne = asncoll.GetEnumerator();
			//You must execute a MoveNext() to get to the first item in the collection.
			// Write out AsnEncodedData in the collection.
			Console.ForegroundColor = ConsoleColor.Blue;
			Console.WriteLine("First AsnEncodedData in the collection: {0}", asne.Current.Format(true));

			Console.ForegroundColor = ConsoleColor.DarkBlue;
			Console.WriteLine("Second AsnEncodedData in the collection: {0}", asne.Current.Format(true));
			//Return index in the collection to the beginning.
		catch (CryptographicException)
			Console.WriteLine("Information could not be written out for this certificate.");
