Provides a wrapper type definition for configuration sections that are not handled by the System.Configuration types.
Assembly: System.Configuration (in System.Configuration.dll)
The configuration system completely parses configuration files to collect configuration information and throws exceptions when it encounters configuration sections that do not have a corresponding entry in the configSections section.
For those sections not handled by the System.Configuration types, the new wrapper type is provided. This is to prevent configuration-file parsing exceptions.
For legacy purposes the IgnoreSectionHandler is also provided.
See the configSections element of the Machine.config configuration file for examples of sections that specify as the handling type.
