  NameDescription
Public methodCopyToCopies the entire PropertyInformationCollection collection to a compatible one-dimensional Array, starting at the specified index of the target array.
Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetEnumeratorGets an IEnumerator object, which is used to iterate through this PropertyInformationCollection collection. (Overrides NameObjectCollectionBase.GetEnumerator().)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetObjectDataPopulates a SerializationInfo object with the data needed to serialize the PropertyInformationCollection instance. (Overrides NameObjectCollectionBase.GetObjectData(SerializationInfo, StreamingContext).)

The PropertyInformationCollection object contains a collection of PropertyInformation objects. A PropertyInformation object contains the details of an individual attribute within the configuration. The PropertyInformationCollection object is derived from the associated NameObjectCollectionBase object.

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

// Create EllementInformation object.
ElementInformation elementInfo =
  configSection.ElementInformation;
// Create a PropertyInformationCollection object.
PropertyInformationCollection propertyInfoCollection =
  elementInfo.Properties;
// Create a PropertyInformation object.
PropertyInformation myPropertyInfo =
  propertyInfoCollection["enabled"];
// Display the property value.
Console.WriteLine
  ("anonymousIdentification Section - Enabled: {0}",
  myPropertyInfo.Value);
