IConfigurationSectionHandler.Create Method (Object, Object, XmlNode)

 

Creates a configuration section handler.

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

object Create(
	object parent,
	object configContext,
	XmlNode section
)

Parameters

parent
Type: System.Object

Parent object.

configContext
Type: System.Object

Configuration context object.

section
Type: System.Xml.XmlNode

Section XML node.

Return Value

Type: System.Object

The created section handler object.

Instances of the IConfigurationSectionHandler class must be thread safe and stateless. The Create method must be callable from multiple threads simultaneously.

Furthermore, the configuration object generated by the Create method must be thread safe and immutable. Because the configuration objects are cached by the configuration system, it is important not to modify the parent argument to Create. For example, if the return value of Create is only a small modification of the parent, actual modifications must be made on a clone of the parent, not the original.
