IsolatedStorageFile.GetUserStoreForApplication Method

Obtains user-scoped isolated storage corresponding to the calling code's application identity.

Namespace: System.IO.IsolatedStorage
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public static IsolatedStorageFile GetUserStoreForApplication ()
public static IsolatedStorageFile GetUserStoreForApplication ()
public static function GetUserStoreForApplication () : IsolatedStorageFile
Not applicable.

Return Value

An IsolatedStorageFile object corresponding to the isolated storage scope based on the calling code's assembly identity.

Exception typeCondition


Sufficient isolated storage permissions have not been granted.

All assemblies associated with an application use the same isolated store when using this method.

GetUserStoreForApplication is functionally equivalent to the following code:

GetStore(IsolatedStorageScope.Application Or IsolatedStorageScope.User, Nothing)
GetStore(IsolatedStorageScope.Application | IsolatedStorageScope.User, null);

In this code, the applicationIdentity parameter for GetStore(IsolatedStorageScope scope, Object applicationIdentity) is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).
