'Declaration Public Shared Function GetAllSettings ( _ AppName As String, _ Section As String _ ) As String(,) 'Usage Dim AppName As String Dim Section As String Dim returnValue As String(,) returnValue = Interaction.GetAllSettings(AppName, Section)
public static function GetAllSettings ( AppName : String, Section : String ) : String[,]
Required. String expression containing the name of the application or project whose key settings are requested.
Required. String expression containing the name of the section whose key settings are requested. GetAllSettings returns an object that contains a two-dimensional array of strings. The strings contain all the key settings in the specified section, plus their corresponding values.
Return ValueReturns a list of key settings and their respective values (originally created with SaveSetting) from an application's entry in the Windows registry. Using the My feature gives you greater productivity and performance in registry operations than GetAllSettings. For more information, see My.Computer.Registry Object.
For more detailed information, see the Visual Basic topic GetAllSettings Function.
GetAllSettings returns an uninitialized Object if either AppName or Section does not exist.
Because it operates under the HKEY_LOCAL_USER registry key, which is not active until a user logs on interactively, GetAllSettings requires that a user be logged on.
Registry settings that are to be accessed from a non-interactive process (such as Mtx.exe) should be stored under either the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\ or the HKEY_USER\DEFAULT\Software registry keys.
This example first uses the SaveSetting function to make entries in the Windows registry for the application specified as AppName, then uses the GetAllSettings function to display the settings. Note that application names and Section names cannot be retrieved with GetAllSettings. Finally, the DeleteSetting function removes the application's entries.
