ResourcePermissionBase.IsSubsetOf Method (IPermission)

 

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

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

public override bool IsSubsetOf(
	IPermission target
)

Parameters

target
Type: System.Security.IPermission

A permission object that is to be tested for the subset relationship.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean

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

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

This method always returns false when the specified permission object is of a different type than that of the current permission object.
