ReadOnlyPermissionSet.FromXml Method

Reconstructs a security object with a specified state from an XML encoding.

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

public override void FromXml(
	SecurityElement et


Type: System.Security.SecurityElement
The XML encoding to use to reconstruct the security object.




The et parameter is null.


The et parameter is not a valid permission element.


The et parameter's version number is not supported.


The object is not being deserialized; that is, PermissionSet did not call back into FromXml during deserialization.

This override of PermissionSet.FromXml is intended to be called by the base class PermissionSet when it is deserializing the permission set. An exception is thrown if you attempt to call FromXml directly. You cannot modify a read-only permission set with a FromXml call.
