ApplicationSettingsBase.Context Property

Gets the application settings context associated with the settings group.

Namespace:  System.Configuration
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

public override SettingsContext Context { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Configuration.SettingsContext
A SettingsContext associated with the settings group.

Each settings wrapper class derived from ApplicationSettingsBase has a context associated with it. The context is passed to the settings provider for each property to identify how the property is used. Context therefore acts as a hint to help the settings provider determine how best to persist the associated application settings values.

In contrast, the SettingsKey property enables the settings provider to disambiguate multiple instances of the same wrapper class.
