Custom configuration sections

Tue Mar 11 2003

Something I've found infinitely useful is custom configuration sections. By using custom configuration sections, you are allowed to store a richer amount of information in the application config file, than when you simply add values to the <appSettings> section. To add a custom config section, you must do 2 things: 1) declare the section group and section in the <configSections> portion of the app.config file, and 2) add the new sections to the config file. ...

Too cool Don! Honestly, something like this is going to be my very next endeavor - I'm adding a 'list' type container for my 'QuickLink'/'ImageLink' control. My plan isn't to use a NVC, but rather to hydrate a set amount of controls in an application/page using a custom config handler...this will have to wait a couple of days tho, since I've got to get my Risk app going into an installer by tomorrow 😦

Oh well, keep 'em coming, bloggers!
