Property Value

A string representing the value of the switch.

ExceptionCondition
ConfigurationErrorsException

The value is null.

-or-

The value does not consist solely of an optional negative sign followed by a sequence of digits ranging from 0 to 9.

-or-

The value represents a number less than MinValue or greater than MaxValue.

The OnValueChanged method is called when the value of the Value property is changed. The OnValueChanged method parses the value of this property and converts it to an integer value, which is then used to set the SwitchSetting property.

Notes to Inheritors:

You should override the OnValueChanged method and provide a conversion operation that sets the appropriate SwitchSetting value for your switch.
