ApplicationSettingsBase.Context Property


Gets the application settings context associated with the settings group.

public override System.Configuration.SettingsContext Context { get; }
member this.Context : System.Configuration.SettingsContext
Public Overrides ReadOnly Property Context As SettingsContext

Property Value

A SettingsContext associated with the settings group.



Each settings wrapper class derived from ApplicationSettingsBase has a context associated with it. The context is passed to the settings provider for each property to identify how the property is used. Context therefore acts as a hint to help the settings provider determine how best to persist the associated application settings values.

In contrast, the SettingsKey property enables the settings provider to disambiguate multiple instances of the same wrapper class.
