I’m trying to create a simple Windows Forms Application that allows to lock and unlock a folders access by providing a path from file explorer. I know what I need to do to create this app but this line of code is getting an error:
DirectorySecurity s1 = Directory.GetAccessControl(path);
The error states, ‘Directory’ does not contain definition for ‘GetAccessControl’
I am using the namespaces:
using System.Security.AccessControl; using System.IO;
Is there anyone who would know how to fix this error from happening or possibly know how to use an alternative to the GetAccessControl(); Method?
I tried using other ways of adding the GetAccessControl(); method into the code, but I had no luck.
You just need to get an instance of
System.IO.DirectoryInfo directoryInfo = new DirectoryInfo(path); System.Security.AccessControl.DirectorySecurity s1 = directoryInfo.GetAccessControl();
