Permission String for Security Trimmed Controls in SharePoint

Suppose you want to display certain WebPart (or the entire page) to limited audience. You can do this using Security Trimmed Controls. It looks like:

1
2
3
<Sharepoint:SPSecurityTrimmedControl runat=”server” Permissions=”DeleteListItems”>
Only users with DeleteListItems permissions will be able to see this content.
</SharePoint:SPSecurityTrimmedControl>

All you have to do is wrap your control with this security control and set the correct permissions in the Permissions attribute. The Permissions attribute, when used in Visual Studio or Designer, will have intellisense and will be filled with the following properties obtained from http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/microsoft.sharepoint.spbasepermissions.aspx. Whatever permissions you specify will be required by the user in order to view the control(s) inside of the SPSecurityTrimmedControl:
