public enum SpecialSetting

Member nameDescription
ConnectionString

The configuration property represents a connection string, typically for a data store or network resource.

WebServiceUrl

The configuration property represents a Uniform Resource Locator (URL) to a Web service.

The SpecialSetting enumeration defines a set of special categories that are applied to application settings properties with the SpecialSettingAttribute class.

System_CAPS_cautionCaution

The default settings provider, LocalFileSettingsProvider, does not encrypt or otherwise protect connection strings. It simple stores this type of settings in a separate <connectionstrings> section in the appropriate configuration file.
