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

public sealed class HostingEnvironmentSection : ConfigurationSection

The HostingEnvironmentSection type exposes the following members.

  NameDescription
Public methodHostingEnvironmentSectionInfrastructure. Initializes a new instance of the HostingEnvironmentSection class by using default settings.

Protected propertyPropertiesGets the collection of properties. (Inherited from ConfigurationElement.)
Public propertySectionInformationGets a SectionInformation object that contains the non-customizable information and functionality of the ConfigurationSection object. (Inherited from ConfigurationSection.)
Public propertyShadowCopyBinAssembliesGets or sets a value indicating whether the assemblies of an application in Bin are shadow copied to the application's ASP.NET Temporary Files directory.
Public propertyShutdownTimeoutGets or sets the amount of time, in seconds, to gracefully shut down the application.

The HostingEnvironmentSection class provides a way to programmatically access and modify the values of the HostingEnvironmentSection section in the configuration file.When an ASP.NET application is unused for a specified amount of time, it can be unloaded from memory based on the IdleTimeout and ShutdownTimeout properties.

This example demonstrates how to specify values declaratively for several attributes of the hostingEnvironment Element (ASP.NET Settings Schema) section, which can also be accessed as members of the HostingEnvironmentSection class.

The following configuration file example shows how to specify values declaratively for the hostingEnvironment Element (ASP.NET Settings Schema) section.

<system.web>
  <hostingEnvironment
    idleTimeout="20"
    shutdownTimeout="30"
  />
</system.web>

The following code example demonstrates how to use the HostingEnvironmentSection class.

        string configPath = "";

        // Get the section related object.
