public sealed class ClientTarget : ConfigurationElement

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodClientTarget(String, String)

This API supports the product infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code. Initializes a new instance of the ClientTarget class.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubpropertyAlias

Gets the user agent's alias.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyCurrentConfiguration

Gets a reference to the top-level Configuration instance that represents the configuration hierarchy that the current ConfigurationElement instance belongs to.(Inherited from ConfigurationElement.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyElementInformation

Gets an ElementInformation object that contains the non-customizable information and functionality of the ConfigurationElement object. (Inherited from ConfigurationElement.)

System_CAPS_protpropertyElementProperty

Gets the ConfigurationElementProperty object that represents the ConfigurationElement object itself.(Inherited from ConfigurationElement.)

System_CAPS_protpropertyItem[ConfigurationProperty]

Gets or sets a property or attribute of this configuration element.(Inherited from ConfigurationElement.)

System_CAPS_protpropertyItem[String]

Gets or sets a property, attribute, or child element of this configuration element.(Inherited from ConfigurationElement.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyLockAllAttributesExcept

Gets the collection of locked attributes.(Inherited from ConfigurationElement.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyLockAllElementsExcept

Gets the collection of locked elements.(Inherited from ConfigurationElement.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyLockAttributes

Gets the collection of locked attributes (Inherited from ConfigurationElement.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyLockElements

Gets the collection of locked elements.(Inherited from ConfigurationElement.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyLockItem

Gets or sets a value indicating whether the element is locked.(Inherited from ConfigurationElement.)

System_CAPS_protpropertyProperties

Gets the collection of properties.(Inherited from ConfigurationElement.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyUserAgent

Gets the user agent's identification name.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_protmethodDeserializeElement(XmlReader, Boolean)

Reads XML from the configuration file.(Inherited from ConfigurationElement.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodEquals(Object)

Compares the current ConfigurationElement instance to the specified object.(Inherited from ConfigurationElement.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetHashCode()

Gets a unique value representing the current ConfigurationElement instance.(Inherited from ConfigurationElement.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetType()

Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_protmethodInit()

Sets the ConfigurationElement object to its initial state.(Inherited from ConfigurationElement.)

System_CAPS_protmethodInitializeDefault()

Used to initialize a default set of values for the ConfigurationElement object.(Inherited from ConfigurationElement.)

System_CAPS_protmethodIsModified()

Indicates whether this configuration element has been modified since it was last saved or loaded, when implemented in a derived class.(Inherited from ConfigurationElement.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodIsReadOnly()

Gets a value indicating whether the ConfigurationElement object is read-only.(Inherited from ConfigurationElement.)

System_CAPS_protmethodReset(ConfigurationElement)

Resets the internal state of the ConfigurationElement object, including the locks and the properties collections.(Inherited from ConfigurationElement.)

System_CAPS_protmethodResetModified()

Resets the value of the IsModified method to false when implemented in a derived class.(Inherited from ConfigurationElement.)

System_CAPS_protmethodSerializeElement(XmlWriter, Boolean)

Writes the contents of this configuration element to the configuration file when implemented in a derived class.(Inherited from ConfigurationElement.)

System_CAPS_protmethodSerializeToXmlElement(XmlWriter, String)

Writes the outer tags of this configuration element to the configuration file when implemented in a derived class.(Inherited from ConfigurationElement.)

System_CAPS_protmethodSetReadOnly()

Sets the IsReadOnly property for the ConfigurationElement object and all subelements.(Inherited from ConfigurationElement.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodToString()

Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_protmethodUnmerge(ConfigurationElement, ConfigurationElement, ConfigurationSaveMode)

Modifies the ConfigurationElement object to remove all values that should not be saved. (Inherited from ConfigurationElement.)

The ClientTarget class refers to elements that are added in the clientTarget section of the configuration file.

The ClientTarget class belongs to a group that includes the ClientTargetCollection class and the ClientTargetSection class.

The ClientTarget class contains two properties identifying a client browser, also named user agent. One property is the alias associated with the client browser identified by the second property. ASP.NET uses this information to render server controls in a page.

For information about how the user agent or its alias is used programmatically, see the Page.ClientTarget property. For information about how the user agent or its alias is used declaratively, see @ Page.

If the Page.ClientTarget property is not set, the HttpBrowserCapabilities object that is associated with the Page.Request property reflects the capabilities of the client browser. (It reflects the capabilities of the browser type, but not necessarily the settings in a specific instance of that browser.) If the property is set, the client browser detection is disabled and the page uses browser capabilities that are associated with the user agent string that you define. You can set this property to any valid user agent string.

This section provides two code examples. The first demonstrates how to declaratively specify values for several properties of the ClientTarget class. The second shows how to obtain the ClientTargetCollection object from the configuration file. You use this object to access the ClientTarget objects it contains.

The following code example shows how to declaratively specify values for several properties of the ClientTarget class.

<clientTarget>
  <add alias=
    "uplevel" 
    userAgent="Mozilla/5.0 (compatible;MSIE 6.0;Windows NT 5.1)"/>
  <add alias="downlevel" userAgent="Generic Downlevel"/>
</clientTarget>

The following code example shows how to obtain the ClientTargetCollection object from the configuration file.


// Get the Web application configuration.
System.Configuration.Configuration configuration =
    WebConfigurationManager.OpenWebConfiguration(
    "/aspnetTest");

// Get the <clientTarget> section.
ClientTargetSection clientTargetSection =
  (ClientTargetSection)configuration.GetSection(
  "system.web/clientTarget");


// Get the client target collection.
ClientTargetCollection clientTargets =
  clientTargetSection.ClientTargets;
