Return Value

Type: System.Security.IPermission

A copy of the current permission.

A copy of the permission represents the same access to resources as the original permission.

The following code example shows the use of the Copy method. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the DataProtectionPermission class.


The code example is intended to show the behavior of the method, not to demonstrate its use. In general, the methods of permission classes are used by the security infrastructure; they are not typically used in applications.

Console.WriteLine("Copying the second permission to the fourth " +
sp4 = (DataProtectionPermission)sp2.Copy();
rc = sp4.Equals(sp2);
Console.WriteLine("Is the fourth permission equal to the second " +
    "permission? " + (rc ? "Yes" : "No"));
