Content Studio permissions

BROWSE permission on the documents selected is required if DraftsOnly is false otherwise READ permission is required. If permission on meta data is applied on the document category additional permissions on connected documents may apply.

The XmlFilter class provides a much more user friendly way of programming against the Content Studio Xml filter.

This is the backwards compatible implementation of this method. This implementation does not throw any exceptions, instead callers must examine the outcome of the call in the Status and StatusText output parameters.
