Public Enumeration FileIOPermissionAccess

Member nameDescription
AllAccess

Append, Read, Write, and PathDiscovery access to a file or directory. AllAccess represents multiple FileIOPermissionAccess values and causes an ArgumentException when used as the access parameter for the GetPathList method, which expects a single value.

Append

Access to append material to a file or directory. Append access includes the ability to create a new file or directory.

NoAccess

No access to a file or directory. NoAccess represents no valid FileIOPermissionAccess values and causes an ArgumentException when used as the parameter for GetPathList, which expects a single value.

PathDiscovery

Access to the information in the path itself. This helps protect sensitive information in the path, such as user names, as well as information about the directory structure revealed in the path. This value does not grant access to files or folders represented by the path.

Read

Access to read from a file or directory.

Write

Access to write to or delete a file or directory. Write access includes deleting and overwriting files or directories.

This enumeration is used with the FileIOPermission class.

System_CAPS_noteNote

Although NoAccess and AllAccess are members of FileIOPermissionAccess, they are not valid for use as the parameter for GetPathList because they describe no file access types or all file access types, respectively, and GetPathList expects a single file access type.

System_CAPS_noteNote

Giving Write access to an assembly is similar to granting it Full Trust. If an application should not write to the file system it should not have Write access.
