Return Value

A copy of the current permission.

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

The following code example shows the behavior of the Copy method. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the RegistryPermission 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.

//Copy creates and returns an identical copy of the current permission.
private bool CopyDemo()

    bool returnValue = true;
    readPerm4 = (RegistryPermission)readPerm1.Copy();
    if (readPerm4 != null)
        Console.WriteLine("Result of copy = " + readPerm4.ToString() + "\n");
        Console.WriteLine("Result of copy is null. \n");
    return returnValue;
