Property Value

Type: System.Configuration.SettingsContext

A SettingsContext associated with the settings instance.

A SettingsContext is used by the application to provide contextual information that the provider can use to persist settings.

Each settings class derived from SettingsBase has a context associated with it. The context is passed to the settings provider to identity additional information about the settings information. Context therefore acts as a hint to help the settings provider determine how to persist the associated settings values.
