ConfigurationElementCollection.CreateNewElement Method ()

Note: This method is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

When overridden in a derived class, creates a new ConfigurationElement.

Namespace: System.Configuration
Assembly: System.Configuration (in system.configuration.dll)

protected abstract ConfigurationElement CreateNewElement ()
protected abstract ConfigurationElement CreateNewElement ()
protected abstract function CreateNewElement () : ConfigurationElement

Return Value

A new ConfigurationElement.

Override the CreateNewElement method to create custom ConfigurationElement objects of a specific type. When a collection is loaded from the configuration file, CreateNewElement is called to create individual elements. CreateNewElement must be overridden in classes that derive from the ConfigurationElementCollection class.

The following code example shows how to override the CreateNewElement method.

protected override 
    ConfigurationElement CreateNewElement()
{
    return new UrlConfigElement();
