The WebConfigurationFileMap type exposes the following members.

Public methodWebConfigurationFileMap()Creates a new instance of the WebConfigurationFileMap class.
Public methodWebConfigurationFileMap(String)Initializes a new instance of the WebConfigurationFileMap class by using the specified machine configuration file name.

Public propertyMachineConfigFilenameGets or sets the name of the machine configuration file name. (Inherited from ConfigurationFileMap.)
Public propertyVirtualDirectoriesGets the listed collection of virtual directories for a Web application.

Public methodCloneCreates a new instance of a WebConfigurationFileMap class with the same value as the existing instance. (Overrides ConfigurationFileMap.Clone().)
Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)

The WebConfigurationFileMap class is used to specify the Web configuration file hierarchy. By default, the configuration system uses the IIS metabase to determine the Web file hierarchy. If IIS is not installed, or if an application targets a version of the .NET Framework that is not the latest version that is installed on the server, the WebConfigurationFileMap class provides a means to define a custom hierarchy.

The WebConfigurationFileMap class can specify a single path or multiple paths related to configuration files.
