Use the ApplicationDataContainer.Values | values property to access the exampleSetting setting in the exampleContainer container.

Call the ApplicationDataContainer.DeleteContainer | deleteContainer method to delete the exampleContainer settings container when you have finished with it.


Windows.Storage.ApplicationDataContainer localSettings = Windows.Storage.ApplicationData.Current.LocalSettings;

// Create a setting in a container

Windows.Storage.ApplicationDataContainer container = 
   localSettings.CreateContainer("exampleContainer", Windows.Storage.ApplicationDataCreateDisposition.Always);

if (localSettings.Containers.ContainsKey("exampleContainer"))
{
   localSettings.Containers["exampleContainer"].Values["exampleSetting"] = "Hello Windows";
}

// Read data from a setting in a container

bool hasContainer = localSettings.Containers.ContainsKey("exampleContainer");
bool hasSetting = false;

if (hasContainer)
{
   hasSetting = localSettings.Containers["exampleContainer"].Values.ContainsKey("exampleSetting");
}

// Delete a container
