OverrideMode Enumeration

Specifies the override behavior of a configuration element for configuration elements in child directories.

Namespace:  System.Configuration
Assembly:  System.Configuration (in System.Configuration.dll)
public enum OverrideMode
Member nameDescription
InheritThe configuration setting of the element or group will be overridden by configuration settings that are in child directories if explicitly allowed by a parent element of the current configuration element or group. Permission to override is specified by using the OverrideMode attribute.
AllowThe configuration setting of the element or group can be overridden by configuration settings that are in child directories.
DenyThe configuration setting of the element or group cannot be overridden by configuration settings that are in child directories.

Use the OverrideMode enumeration values to set the OverrideMode property of the SectionInformation class. You set this property in order to programmatically specify override behavior of a configuration element or group. To declaratively set the override behavior for all configuration elements inside a location element, use the allowOverride attribute. The OverrideMode property gives you more granular control over the elements inside a location element.
