ApplicationSettingsBase.Properties Property


Gets the collection of settings properties in the wrapper.

 virtual property System::Configuration::SettingsPropertyCollection ^ Properties { System::Configuration::SettingsPropertyCollection ^ get(); };
public override System.Configuration.SettingsPropertyCollection Properties { get; }
member this.Properties : System.Configuration.SettingsPropertyCollection
Public Overrides ReadOnly Property Properties As SettingsPropertyCollection

Property Value


A SettingsPropertyCollection containing all the SettingsProperty objects used in the current wrapper.



The associated settings provider could not be found or its instantiation failed.


The get accessor of the Properties property reflects over the metadata of the settings wrapper class, which is derived from ApplicationSettingsBase, to dynamically determine the set of available application settings properties.

The ApplicationSettingsBase class natively recognizes certain characteristics of an application setting, such as its name, property type, settings provider, default value, read only status, and a serialization preference. These characteristics are mirrored as properties in the SettingsProperty class. All other attributes of the settings property are just passed through to its associated settings provider.
