Determines whether the current permission is a subset of the specified permission.

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

override IsSubsetOf : 
        target:IPermission -> bool

Parameters

target
Type: System.Security.IPermission

A permission that is to be tested for the subset relationship. This permission must be the same type as the current permission.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if the current permission is a subset of the specified permission; otherwise, false.

Exception Condition
ArgumentException

The target parameter is not null and is not of the same type as the current permission.

The current permission is a subset of the specified permission if the current permission specifies a set of operations that is contained by the specified permission. For example, a permission that represents read access to C:\example.txt is a subset of a permission that represents read access to C:\. If this method returns true, the current permission represents no more access to the protected resource than does the specified permission.
