ConfigurationSection Class [IIS 7 and higher]
Serves as a base class for classes that represent configuration sections.
The following table lists the methods exposed by the ConfigurationSection class.
Retrieves the allowDefinition attribute for a configuration section.
Retrieves the allowLocation attribute for a configuration section.
Reverts configuration values in a section to those of its parent section.
Sets the allowDefinition attribute for a configuration section.
Sets the allowLocation attribute for a configuration section.
The following table lists the properties exposed by the ConfigurationSection class.
A read-only string value that contains the path to a target object relative to the current object. For example, in the object path "MACHINE/WEBROOT/APPHOST/MYSITE/APP/", the Location property would contain "MYSITE/APP/". A key property.
A read-only string value that contains the path to the current object. For example, in the object path "MACHINE/WEBROOT/APPHOST/MYSITE/APP/", the Path property would contain "MACHINE/WEBROOT/APPHOST/". A key property.
A SectionInformation object whose read/write properties provide metadata and control locking for a configuration section.
The following table lists the subclasses exposed by the ConfigurationSection class.
Specifies access permissions to content protected by Secure Sockets Layer (SSL).
Configures Anonymous authentication.
Specifies how cookies are used in a Web application.
Exposes Active Server Pages (ASP) configuration settings for ASP applications.
