Hi everybody,
Is it possible to require administrator rights for one single method?
Something like this:
private void TheMethod(){
    // Do something
I try to use it in this way:
[PrincipalPermission(SecurityAction.Demand, Role = @"BUILTIN\Administrators")]
public void MyMethod()
but i have any success.
I found it in this article[^]
Can anybody explain me how i can execute one method (start/stop service) with admin rights.
I want to do something like this:
user push button;
admin right request is occur;
if user allow it method execute.
Thanks, all!

I suspect you'd need to put the method in a dll to seperate it from the rest of your code. I know that C# loads the dll as it's needed, so perhaps it won't notice until then that it needs admin rights ?

As i understand in C# applications there is file with different preferences called manifest, where you can chose request level. But this preferences have only .exe files. I do not now how declare execute permission for single dll.
