Property Value

Type: System.String

The following example demonstrates the Name property.

                manager.GetApplicationHostConfiguration().RootSectionGroup;
            ShowGroup(rootGroup, -1);

        }

        private void ShowGroup(SectionGroup group, int indentLevel)
        {
            Console.Write("".PadLeft(++indentLevel, ' '));
            string grpName = String.IsNullOrEmpty(group.Name) ? "{root}" : group.Name;
