SectionInformation.IsLocked Property

Gets a value that indicates whether the associated configuration section is locked.

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

public bool IsLocked { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the section is locked; otherwise, false.

The IsLocked property returns true when the related section is locked by the AllowOverride or the AllowDefinition property. A section is locked if it cannot be overridden or defined in the current configuration file.

The examples in this section show how to get the IsLocked property value after accessing the related section information in the configuration file.

The following example gets the SectionInformation object.

// Get the current configuration file.
System.Configuration.Configuration config =
        ConfigurationManager.OpenExeConfiguration(
        ConfigurationUserLevel.None);

// Get the section.
UrlsSection section =
    (UrlsSection)config.GetSection("MyUrls");


SectionInformation sInfo =
    section.SectionInformation;

The following example gets the IsLocked value.

bool locked =
   sInfo.IsLocked;
Console.WriteLine("Section locked?: {0}",
    locked.ToString());
