StrongNameIdentityPermission.Name Property

Gets or sets the simple name portion of the strong name identity.

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

public string Name { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.String
The simple name of the identity.


The value is an empty string ("").


The property value cannot be retrieved because it contains an ambiguous identity.

The value of the Name property can be an exact name or can be modified by a wildcard character in the final position; for example, both MyCompany.MyDepartment.MyFile and MyCompany.MyDepartment.* are valid names. If you attempt to set the Name property to an empty string (""), an ArgumentException is thrown.
