PermissionSet.AddPermissionImpl Method

Adds a specified permission to the PermissionSet.

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

protected virtual IPermission AddPermissionImpl(
	IPermission perm


Type: System.Security.IPermission
The permission to add.

Return Value

Type: System.Security.IPermission
The union of the permission added and any permission of the same type that already exists in the PermissionSet, or null if perm is null.


The method is called from a ReadOnlyPermissionSet.

The AddPermissionImpl method is the implementation for the AddPermission method.

If a permission of the same type as the added permission already exists in the PermissionSet, the new permission is the union of the existing permission object and the specified permission object. For example, if a permission that implements IUnrestrictedPermission is added to an Unrestricted PermissionSet, the resulting union is the original Unrestricted PermissionSet.
