ClientTargetSection Class

Configures the clientTarget section. This class cannot be inherited.

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

public sealed class ClientTargetSection : ConfigurationSection

The ClientTargetSection class provides a way to programmatically access and modify the clientTarget section of the configuration file. It belongs to a group that includes the ClientTargetCollection class and the ClientTarget class.

The ClientTargetSection class contains ClientTarget objects that define pairs of aliases and associated target user agents for which ASP.NET server controls should render content.

NoteNote:

The ClientTargetSection can read and write information from and to the related section of the configuration file according to the section property AllowDefinition whose value is Everywhere.

This section provides two code examples. The first displays a declarative representation of the ClientTargetSection class and also demonstrates how to declaratively specify values for several properties of the ClientTarget class. The second shows how to obtain the ClientTargetCollection object from the configuration file. You use this object to access the ClientTarget objects it contains.

The following code example shows how to declaratively specify values for several properties of the ClientTarget class.

<clientTarget>
  <add alias=
    "ie5" userAgent="Mozilla/4.0 (compatible;MSIE 5.5;Windows NT 4.0)"/>
  <add alias=
    "ie4" userAgent="Mozilla/4.0 (compatible;MSIE 4.0;Windows NT 4.0)"/>
  <add alias=
    "uplevel" userAgent="Mozilla/4.0 (compatible;MSIE 4.0;Windows NT 4.0)"/>
  <add alias="downlevel" userAgent="Unknown"/>
</clientTarget>

The following code example shows how to obtain the ClientTargetCollection object from the configuration file

// Get the Web application configuration.
System.Configuration.Configuration configuration =
    WebConfigurationManager.OpenWebConfiguration(
    "/aspnetTest");

// Get the <clientTarget> section.
ClientTargetSection clientTargetSection =
  (ClientTargetSection)configuration.GetSection(
  "system.web/clientTarget");


// Get the client target collection.
ClientTargetCollection clientTargets =
  clientTargetSection.ClientTargets;
