SafeHandle Constructor (IntPtr, Boolean)

This type can be used only by trusted applications. If you try to use its members in a partial-trust application, your code will throw a MethodAccessException exception. This type is security-critical, which restricts its use.
[SECURITY CRITICAL]

Initializes a new instance of the SafeHandle class with the specified invalid handle value.

Namespace:  System.Runtime.InteropServices
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

'Declaration

Parameters

invalidHandleValue

The value of an invalid handle (usually 0 or -1). Your implementation of IsInvalid should return true for this value.
