Managing Settings in LightSwitch

 

For the latest documentation on Visual Studio 2017 RC, see Visual Studio 2017 RC Documentation.

You manage several categories of settings in Visual Studio LightSwitch in several locations.

Global settings affect the development environment, such as the font size to display in the Code Editor or the number of items to show in a recently used list. You manage these settings in the Options dialog box, which you access by, on the menu bar, choosing Tools, Options.

Application settings affect only the application that you're working in. You manage these settings in the Application Designer, which you access from the shortcut menu for the Properties node in Solution Explorer.

The Application Designer is divided into several tabs:

  • The General Properties tab contains miscellaneous settings such as the Application version and the Default Language properties.

  • The Extensions tab contains settings to manage any extensions that you've installed.

  • The Access Control tab manages settings for authentication and authorization.

  • The SharePoint tab contains settings for debugging your application and deploying it to SharePoint.
