DefaultSection Class

Represents a basic configuration-section handler that exposes the configuration section's XML for both read and write access.

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

public sealed class DefaultSection : ConfigurationSection

This is the type that is returned when the design-time API reads in a section that is not registered in the <configSections> section. This type is also returned when the type of registered section does not inherit from ConfigurationSection, as with sections that use the ASP.NET 1.0 or 1.1 IConfigurationSectionHandler type.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
