SectionInformation.ForceDeclaration Method

Forces the associated configuration section to appear in the configuration file.

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

public void ForceDeclaration()

The ForceDeclaration method forces this SectionInformation declaration to be written to the configuration file.


The ForceDeclaration method can force a SectionInformation declaration to be written to a configuration file, even if the section is not required because it is already declared in a parent file. Using the ForceDeclaration method can make a configuration file more portable from one computer to another. It enables you to make sure that the section exists even when you do not have control over parent configuration files.
