Assembly:  System (in System.dll)
new : 
        providerTypeName:string -> SettingsProviderAttribute


Type: System.String

A String containing the name of the settings provider.

The type name is the name of the class, derived from SettingsProvider, that is being specified as the settings provider.

Caution noteCaution

Using custom settings providers from arbitrary third parties is inherently unsafe because these providers have full read/write access to your application's configuration information. A settings provider should be thoroughly vetted before it is adopted for general use.
