Sections Property

IIS 7.0

Gets a collection of nested configuration section definitions.

Namespace:  Microsoft.Web.Administration
Assembly:  Microsoft.Web.Administration (in Microsoft.Web.Administration.dll)

public SectionDefinitionCollection Sections { get; }

If no section definitions are found, this property gets an empty collection.

The following example demonstrates the Sections property.


using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Text;
using Microsoft.Web.Administration;
using Microsoft.Web.Management;

namespace AdministrationSnippets
{
    public class AdministrationSectionDefinition
    {
        // List all configuration sections in applicationHost.config
        public void ShowAllSections()
        {
            ServerManager manager = new ServerManager();
            SectionGroup rootGroup = 
                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;
            Console.WriteLine("+ Section Group: {0}; Sub-groups: {1}; Sections: {2}",
                grpName, group.SectionGroups.Count, group.Sections.Count);

            foreach (SectionGroup grp in group.SectionGroups)
            {
                ShowGroup(grp, indentLevel);
            }

            string path = String.Concat(group.Name, "/");

            foreach (SectionDefinition def in group.Sections)
            {
                Console.Write("".PadLeft(indentLevel, ' '));
                Console.WriteLine("|_Name:                {0}", String.Concat(path,def.Name));
                Console.Write("".PadLeft(indentLevel, ' '));
                Console.WriteLine("|_AllowDefinition:     {0}", def.AllowDefinition);
                Console.Write("".PadLeft(indentLevel, ' '));
                Console.WriteLine("|_AllowLocation:       {0}", def.AllowLocation);
                Console.Write("".PadLeft(indentLevel, ' '));
                Console.WriteLine("|_OverrideModeDefault: {0}", def.OverrideModeDefault);
                Console.Write("".PadLeft(indentLevel, ' '));
                Console.WriteLine("|_Type:                {0}\r\n", 
                    String.IsNullOrEmpty(def.Type) ? "null" : def.Type);
            }
        }

    }
}
