SettingsProvider Constructor

Note: This constructor is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Initializes an instance of the SettingsProvider class.

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

protected SettingsProvider ()
protected SettingsProvider ()
protected function SettingsProvider ()

This is this default protected constructor for this abstract class. Derived custom settings providers are not required to provide an explicit constructor because the Initialize method typically performs all initialization.

Client code typically does not directly instantiate a settings provider; instead, you use the following procedure to find a settings provider for a particular settings property:

  1. Call the GetService method on the current Component or ISite to return a reference to the current ISettingsProviderService.

  2. Call the GetSettingsProvider method of the ISettingsProviderService retrieved in the first step to return the settings provider.
