InfiniteIntConverter Class

Converts between a string and the standard infinite or integer value.

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

public sealed class InfiniteIntConverter : ConfigurationConverterBase
public final class InfiniteIntConverter extends ConfigurationConverterBase
public final class InfiniteIntConverter extends ConfigurationConverterBase
Not applicable.

This type, like all the other configuration converter types, converts strings found in the configuration file to and from the related strongly typed properties.

In particular, the InfiniteIntConverter class converts string values, assigned to a configuration property, to integer values and vice versa. If the configuration property has a string value of "infinite", it converts this value to MaxValue and vice versa.

This converter is used with integer types. The infinite value is persisted as MaxValue.

The following code example shows how to use the InfiniteIntConverter when applied to a custom section property.


public enum Permissions
{
    FullControl         = 0,
    Modify              = 1,
    ReadExecute         = 2,
    Read                = 3,
    Write               = 4,
    SpecialPermissions  = 5
}

[ConfigurationProperty("permission", DefaultValue = Permissions.Read)]
public Permissions Permission
{
    get
    {
        return (Permissions)this["permission"];
    }

    set
    {
        this["permission"] = value;
    }

}
