Hi
Has anyone used the PolicyEngine in IE to enable Applet File IO and Url connections?
Methods like the following are used but I'm not sure where to find the apropriate classes / jar file :-
com.ms.security.PolicyEngine.assertPermission(PermissionID.UI);
I also need to find out what the paramters are such as :- PermissionID.UI
Here is a short example code using Netscape and IE. (below)
Any help appreciated.
Please reply ro

<code>
if (mBrowser.equals(kNetscape)) {
try {
PrivilegeManager.enablePrivilege("UniversalFileRead");
}
catch (Exception exc) { ... }
}
else if (mBrowser.equals(kMSIE)) {
/* --- The UI permission is required to use FileDialog --- */
com.ms.security.PolicyEngine.assertPermission(PermissionID.UI);
com.ms.security.PolicyEngine.assertPermission(PermissionID.FILEIO
);
}
