PermissionSet.SetPermission Method

Sets a permission to the PermissionSet, replacing any existing permission of the same type.

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

public IPermission SetPermission(
	IPermission perm
)

Parameters

perm
Type: System.Security.IPermission

The permission to set.

Return Value

Type: System.Security.IPermission
The set permission.

This method removes any existing permission object of the same type from the PermissionSet and replaces it with the perm parameter. If a permission that implements IUnrestrictedPermission is set on a PermissionSet that is Unrestricted, the resulting PermissionSet is no longer Unrestricted.

The following code example shows the use of the SetPermission method. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the PermissionSet class.

// Change the permission set using SetPermission.
ps5.SetPermission(new EnvironmentPermission(EnvironmentPermissionAccess.AllAccess, "USERNAME"));
Console.WriteLine("Permission set after SetPermission = " + ps5.ToString());
