SecurityException when using XSLTArgumentList in webpart

  Asked By: Nicholas    Date: Nov 14    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 931

I am facing a problem in my webpart development.
I am using the XML web control in my webpart to perform
XSLT transformation. But in my xslt i am calling user defined functions
written in c#. for this i use XSLTArgumentList class and add it using

It is documented that the caller needs to have "FullTrust" to invoke the
AddExtensionObject method. if not a SecurityException occurs.

Though I am deploying my webpart in Gac i am getting this error.
So I modified my wss_minimaltrust.config file and added an IPermission tag with Strongname membership condition for my webpart assembly still same result.

The funny thing is it works fine when i use the same logic in a web application. but when i use it in a webpart it does not.

anyone can throw some light on this.

HOW to grant FULLTRUST privilege to a custom webpart assembly??

I'm not positive here, but I believe the limitations
listed here
are getting in the way of what you are attempting to
do as well.

So I don't think anything you do will help, you'll
need to figure out a different way to solve the

However, I'm all ears if someone has a solution.

I am able to get the webpart  to work if i set trust level="full" in the web.config. Therefore if I manage to give full trust to the webpart assembly  I should be able to get the webpart to work with XSLTArgumentList.
modified  the wss_mediumtrust.config file  as listed below but the webpart assembly is not fully trusted. Can anyone of you please take a look at this and point out the mistake.

Description ="Allows full access to all resources"

Why are you mandating that your assembly  be identified both by its
public key blob and UrlMembershipCondition of $AppDirUrl. I typically
only use the StrongNameMembershipCondition.
