Defines standard functionality for controls or libraries that store and retrieve application settings.
Assembly: System (in System.dll)
Thetype exposes the following members.
|LoadComponentSettings||Reads the control's application settings into their corresponding properties and updates the control's state.|
|ResetComponentSettings||Resets the control's application settings properties to their default values.|
|SaveComponentSettings||Persists the control's application settings properties.|
Typically, you can add application settings support to an application by creating a settings wrapper class, which is derived from ApplicationSettingsBase, and then add special properties to this class. However, this approach does not sufficiently encapsulate application settings for a control so that its container is shielded from the details. The interface provides an application with a standard interface for communicating application settings state change requests to a control, component, or library module. Design-time tools also depend on this interface to properly manage controls and components.
