X509CertificateCollection.X509CertificateEnumerator Class

Enumerates the X509Certificate objects in an X509CertificateCollection.


Namespace:  System.Security.Cryptography.X509Certificates
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

public class X509CertificateEnumerator : IEnumerator

The X509CertificateCollection.X509CertificateEnumerator type exposes the following members.

Public methodX509CertificateCollection.X509CertificateEnumeratorInitializes a new instance of the X509CertificateCollection.X509CertificateEnumerator class for the specified X509CertificateCollection.

Public propertyCurrentGets the current X509Certificate in the X509CertificateCollection.

Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodMoveNextAdvances the enumerator to the next element of the collection.
Public methodResetSets the enumerator to its initial position, which is before the first element in the collection.
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

Explicit interface implemetationPrivate propertyIEnumerator.CurrentInfrastructure. For a description of this member, see IEnumerator.Current.
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate methodIEnumerator.MoveNextInfrastructure. For a description of this member, see IEnumerator.MoveNext.
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate methodIEnumerator.ResetInfrastructure. For a description of this member, see IEnumerator.Reset.

Enumerators provide read-only access to the data in the collection. Enumerators cannot be used to modify the underlying collection.

Initially, the enumerator is positioned before the first element in the collection. The Reset method also brings the enumerator back to this position. At this position, calling the Current property throws an exception. Therefore, you must call the MoveNext method to advance the enumerator to the first element of the collection before reading the value of Current.

This class inherits from the IEnumerator interface. For more information about enumerating over a collection, see IEnumerator.
