The ElementInformation object contains meta-information about an individual element within the configuration. This object can be used when validating and changing the properties of an individual element.

The following code example shows how to get the ElementInformation associated with a ConfigurationElement object.

static public ElementInformation
    GetElementInformation()
{

    // Get the current configuration file.
    System.Configuration.Configuration config =
            ConfigurationManager.OpenExeConfiguration(
            ConfigurationUserLevel.None);

    // Get the section.
    UrlsSection section =
        (UrlsSection)config.GetSection("MyUrls");

    // Get the element.
    UrlConfigElement url = section.Simple;

    ElementInformation eInfo =
        url.ElementInformation;

    return eInfo;



The following excerpt shows the configuration used by the previous code example.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<configuration>
  <configSections>
    <section name="MyUrls" type="Samples.AspNet.UrlsSection,
      ConfigurationElement, Version=1.0.0.0, Culture=neutral,
      PublicKeyToken=null" allowDefinition="Everywhere"
      allowExeDefinition="MachineToApplication"
      restartOnExternalChanges="true" />
  </configSections>
  <MyUrls name="MyFavorites">
    <simple name="Contoso" url="http://www.contoso.com" port="8080" />
    <urls>
      <clear />
      <add name="Microsoft" url="http://www.microsoft.com" port="0" />
