RestartOnExternalChanges Property

SectionInformation.RestartOnExternalChanges Property

Gets or sets a value that specifies whether a change in an external configuration include file requires an application restart.

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

public bool RestartOnExternalChanges { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if a change in an external configuration include file requires an application restart; otherwise, false. The default is true.

ExceptionCondition
ConfigurationErrorsException

The selected value conflicts with a value that is already defined.

Set the RestartOnExternalChanges property to false to prevent an application restart when configuration settings in the external include file are modified for this ConfigurationSection object.

The following example shows how to get the RestartOnExternalChanges property value of a ConfigurationSection object.

static public void RestartOnExternalChanges()
{
    SectionInformation sInfo =
        GetSectionInformation();

    bool restartOnChange = 
        sInfo.RestartOnExternalChanges;
    Console.WriteLine("Section type: {0}", 
        restartOnChange.ToString());

}
