NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodEquals(Object)

Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_protmethodFinalize()

Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetBaseException()

When overridden in a derived class, returns the Exception that is the root cause of one or more subsequent exceptions.(Inherited from Exception.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetHashCode()

Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetObjectData(SerializationInfo, StreamingContext)

Sets the SerializationInfo with information about the SecurityException.(Overrides Exception.GetObjectData(SerializationInfo, StreamingContext).)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetType()

Gets the runtime type of the current instance.(Inherited from Exception.)

System_CAPS_protmethodMemberwiseClone()

Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodToString()

Returns a representation of the current SecurityException.(Overrides Exception.ToString().)

NameDescription
System_CAPS_proteventSerializeObjectState

Occurs when an exception is serialized to create an exception state object that contains serialized data about the exception.(Inherited from Exception.)

A SecurityException exception is thrown when a caller does not have the permissions required to access a resource. The following example instantiates a PermissionSet object that includes a UIPermission object to allow access to UI objects and the Clipboard and a RegistryPermission object to prevent registry access. The call to the PermissionSet.PermitOnly method means that these permissions will apply regardless of the permissions assigned to the caller. As a result, the attempt to create a registry key throws a SecurityException.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.

SecurityException uses the HRESULT COR_E_SECURITY, which has the value 0x8013150A.
