Testing Permission in COM+

Testing Permission in COM+

Testing Permission in COM+

How do I test whether or not a method can be called on a particular COM+ object?

I am creating a COM+ application to support an intranet web site.  I would like to enable/disable buttons and hyperlinks on the site based on the user's security settings.  However, I don't want to use any programmatic security; declarative security meets the need.

How do I test whether or not the user can call the method without actually calling the method?

RE: Testing Permission in COM+

Directly?  You can't.  
What I suggest is put in a dummy method that returns true
Put in error hanling if you make the call and it errors then they don't have access to that interface.  Make sure you put the method in all the interfaces you want to use like this.
