ApplicationSettingsBase.Reload Method

Refreshes the application settings property values from persistent storage.

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

'Declaration
Public Sub Reload

The Reload method clears the currently cached property values, causing a reload of these values from persistent storage when they are subsequently accessed. This method performs the following actions:

Reload contrasts with Reset in that the former will load the last set of saved application settings values, whereas the latter will load the saved default values.

The following code example shows the Reload method being invoked in the body of the Click event handler for a button named btnReload. As a result of this call, the currently stored values for the application settings are reloaded into their corresponding properties. The full code example is listed in the ApplicationSettingsBase class overview.


Private Sub btnReload_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs) _
        Handles btnReload.Click
    frmSettings1.Reload()
End Sub
