public sealed class ClientSettingsSection : ConfigurationSection


The dnprdnshort contains a single default settings provider, System.Configuration.LocalFileSettingsProvider, which stores configuration data to the local file system in files with the extension .config. The contents of configuration files are structured as XML documents. User-scoped settings are persisted in a file with the name username.config. Within this file, data is stored as elements within a <userSettings> section. Each of these sections is represented by a corresponding System.Configuration.ClientSettingsSection. Each section object is owned and administered by a configuration section handler, which is an System.Configuration.IConfigurationSectionHandler.

The System.Configuration.ClientSettingsSection class represents a simple extension of the System.Configuration.ConfigurationSection class, which is used in the dnprdnshort support for general configuration files.
