GetCollection Method (String, Type)
Returns the configuration element that has the specified name and type and is under the current configuration element.
Assembly: Microsoft.Web.Administration (in Microsoft.Web.Administration.dll)
public ConfigurationElement GetCollection( string collectionName, Type collectionType )
- Type: System..::..String
The name of the element this method should return.
- Type: System..::..Type
The common language runtime (CLR) type of the collection this method should return.
Return ValueType: Microsoft.Web.Administration..::..ConfigurationElement
A ConfigurationElement object.
A child element collection that is represented in the ChildElements property differs from a nested element collection that is represented by the return value of the GetCollection method. Both collections contain ConfigurationElement objects. However, you should use the ChildElements property when you query the configuration for unique child elements such as the system.webServer/asp configuration section. You should use the GetCollection method when you query the configuration for collection elements that contain a unique key or a multi-attribute key, such as the system.webServer/sites configuration section
