Managing Settings in LightSwitch

Settings in Visual Studio LightSwitch 2011 fall into several categories and are managed in several locations.

Global settings affect the development environment, such as the font size to display in the Code Editor or the number of items to show in a recently used list. Global settings are managed in the Options dialog box, accessed from the Tools, Options menu.

Application settings affect only the application that you are working in. Application settings are managed in the Application Designer, accessed by double-clicking the Properties node in Solution Explorer.

The Application Designer is divided into five tabs:

  • The General Properties tab contains miscellaneous settings such as the Application name and the Application icon properties.

  • The Extensions tab contains settings to manage any extensions that you have installed.

  • The Screen Navigation tab manages menus, navigation groups, and the Startup Screen.

  • The Access Control tab manages settings for authentication and authorization.

  • The Application Type tab contains settings for client and server topology.
