ISecurityEncodable.FromXml Method (SecurityElement)


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

Reconstructs a security object with a specified state from an XML encoding.

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

Sub FromXml (
	e As SecurityElement


Type: System.Security.SecurityElement

The XML encoding to use to reconstruct the security object.

Custom code that extends security objects needs to implement the ToXml and FromXml methods to make the objects security-encodable.

The following code example demonstrates implementing the FromXml method. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the ISecurityEncodable class.

' Populate the permission's fields from XML.
Public Overrides Sub FromXml(ByVal e As SecurityElement)
    m_specifiedAsUnrestricted = False
    m_flags = 0

    ' If XML indicates an unrestricted permission, make this permission unrestricted.
    Dim s As String = CStr(e.Attributes("Unrestricted"))
    If Not (s Is Nothing) Then
        m_specifiedAsUnrestricted = Convert.ToBoolean(s)
        If m_specifiedAsUnrestricted Then
            m_flags = SoundPermissionState.PlayAnySound
        End If
    End If
    ' If XML indicates a restricted permission, parse the flags.
    If Not m_specifiedAsUnrestricted Then
        s = CStr(e.Attributes("Flags"))
        If Not (s Is Nothing) Then
            m_flags = CType(Convert.ToInt32([Enum].Parse(GetType(SoundPermission), s, True)), SoundPermissionState)
        End If
    End If

End Sub 'FromXml
