Remarks

The .NET Framework contains a single default settings provider, LocalFileSettingsProvider, which stores configuration data to the local file system in files with the extension .config. The contents of configuration files are structured as XML documents. User-scoped settings are persisted in a file with the name username.config. Within this file, data is stored as elements within a <userSettings> section. Each of these sections is represented by a corresponding ClientSettingsSection. Each section object is owned and administered by a configuration section handler, which is an IConfigurationSectionHandler.

The ClientSettingsSection class represents a simple extension of the ConfigurationSection class, which is used in the .NET Framework support for general configuration files.

For more information about application settings, see the topic Application Settings for Windows Forms.
