Using the PolicyCategory object you can:

  • Create a policy category to which target objects can subscribe.

  • Specify the policy category to use in a subscription

C#

PolicyCategorySubscription policyCatSub = new PolicyCategorySubscription(ps);
policyCatSub.PolicyCategory = category;
policyCatSub.TargetType = targetType;
policyCatSub.Target = targetObject;
policyCatSub.Create();

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
