Application settings properties have a scope that is based either at the application or the user level. As the categories imply, application-scoped properties present uniform values to all users of the application, whereas user-scoped properties have dedicated values for each user of the application.
The UserScopedSettingAttribute indicates that a property should be considered a user level setting, and that appropriate storage decisions should be made accordingly by the settings provider.
A scope attribute is required for each application settings property. If a property is not applied with either a ApplicationScopedSettingAttribute or UserScopedSettingAttribute, the property is ignored by the settings provider—it is not serialized. It is invalid, however, to apply both attributes to the same settings property. Such an attempt will cause a ConfigurationErrorsException to be thrown.
The following code example demonstrates the use of the UserScopedSettingAttribute applied to all four properties of the FormSettings wrapper class, which is derived from the ApplicationSettingsBase class. This class is used to persist the location, size, background color, and text of form. The full code example is listed in the ApplicationSettingsBase class overview.
