ConfigurationLockCollection Class

Contains a collection of locked configuration objects. This class cannot be inherited.

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

public sealed class ConfigurationLockCollection : ICollection, 
	IEnumerable

In a configuration file, a configuration section contains both attributes and elements. A ConfigurationLockCollection collection exists for the locked attributes of a configuration section, and is accessed through the LockAttributes property of the ConfigurationElement class. Another ConfigurationLockCollection collection exists for the locked elements of a configuration section, and is accessed through the LockElements property of the ConfigurationElement class.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the ConfigurationLockCollection type.
