Gets the collection of locked attributes

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

property ConfigurationLockCollection^ LockAttributes {
	ConfigurationLockCollection^ get();

Property Value

Type: System.Configuration::ConfigurationLockCollection^

The ConfigurationLockCollection of locked attributes (properties) for the element.

The LockAttributes property allows you to lock all the attributes you specify.

To do that you use the Contains method, as explained in the Example section.


The LockAttributes property allows you to prevent the child configuration elements of the element to which you apply the rule from being modified. Use LockItem if you want to put a general lock on the element itself and its child elements.

Notes to Implementers:

If you use the LockAllAttributesExcept and LockAttributes properties at the same time, the most restrictive rule applies.

The following example shows how to use the LockAttributes property.
